Golang Job Details

Freelancer Limited, the ASX-listed company that owns Freelancer.com and Escrow.com, is opening positions for paid 3 month Software Engineering Internships over the 2023/2024 University break. Twelve-time Webby award-winning Freelancer.com is the world's largest freelancing and crowdsourcing marketplace, which connects millions of employers to freelancers across the globe. Escrow.com is a global fintech industry leader in secure online payments, having handled over US$6 billion in transactions buying and selling boats, cars, airplanes, jewellery, fine art, and even trips to the planned Aurora space station in 2021!

We think it is pretty cool that our marketplace hosts a real life economy, where work is undertaken in every area you can think of. From design, writing, data entry and software development; through to sales, marketing, accounting and legal services - even NASA uses us!

We are looking for graduate full stack software engineers. Our team works with the latest tech, and pushes code 30-40 times a day in a high-performance cloud environment. We develop core, revenue-generating products, and so this represents an opportunity to learn from the best and potentially have a fundamental impact on our global business.

Not only will you help build features and software that scale, but your work will have direct impact on tens of millions of users worldwide. So if you have an interest in architecting web applications at scale, enjoy the challenge of writing optimised lightning fast SQL for massive data sets, and are passionate about designing high quality APIs, then we'd love to hear from you!


  • Experience with a web development language, such as PHP, Python or Golang
  • Experience with Javascript, preferably Angular, TypeScript, ES6 or other common JS frameworks
  • Ideally, experience with relational databases and SQL, preferably MySQL
  • Ideally, experience with Linux
  • Background or interest in web engineering at scale
  • Ideally, a Github page with contributions to open source software
  • Only considering students in their penultimate and final year + Tertiary Degree in Computer Science / Engineering (or related)


  • This won't be a cog-in-the-machine role; you will be joining a global technology company with a meritocratic culture with the ability to take ownership and fast track your career growth. Several of our Directors and VP-level managers started out in junior positions and have climbed up the career ladder to the top!
  • Weekly Town Halls with the all important Q&A session with the CEO (you really can ask him anything)!
  • Friday lunches - We finish each week with a catered lunch. Every Friday we offer a different cuisine from local restaurants.
  • Fully stocked kitchens + yes we do have beer taps (and a bar with a killer view!)
  • Hack-a-thons - Get hacking and programming in this quarterly company-wide where teams create solutions to existing problems and win prizes. The 2-day event is filled with games, events, shows, food and more.
  • Fun events (we once built a soccer stadium in the office with two tonnes of turf).
  • Located at Grosvenor Place - Home of Freelancer HQ, this iconic building and location with harbour views with weekly and complimentary classes, activities, events, promotions, competitions and deals.

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better:

  • Change lives every day – Everything we do as part of our jobs contribute to improving the lives of our users on a global scale. Our mission is to provide one billion jobs. Not many companies actually make a difference like Freelancer does in providing opportunity and income to people all around the world.
  • Fast-track your career - We boast a meritocratic culture, renowned for hiring into senior roles from within and producing many business and product leaders in the technology industry.
