Rexlabs is a product company based in Brisbane, Queensland. While the main product is still Rex, a CRM for real estate agencies, during my time there the company has transitioned more into a product house, launching other products like Hitch, a referral system application, and Spoke, an avertising platform for real estate agencies.

My Responsibilities

As part of the Frontend team I learned a lot about product development, especially in React and React Native. I eventually transitioned into the role of the technical lead of the team.

Responsibilities included planning and development of new products, as well as features for existing ones. As team lead I was also handling common project management tasks, planning and executing sprints, delegating work across the team and ensuring output quality through regular code reviews and QA. I was responsible for mentoring and training the Frontend team, as well as doing regular performance reviews.

For more specific details on some of the recent projects check out my work examples section. Beyond the product work I was also part of the core team building our current Frontend stack (championing areas like testing, accessibility, performance, etc.), including the component library and eventually design system. A big part of my role was to constantly think about how to improve the product quality and developer experience at rexlabs.

I was also directly involved in hiring, leading interviews with FE and full-stack candidates. This helped me a lot in my communication skills and understanding people’s motivations and goals are to be able to evaluate whether or not they are a good fit for the team and the company.

To further improve these and my mentoring skills, I started to be more active in the JS community, giving regular talks at the local React meetup and recently trying to start writing blog articles. Personally, sharing topics that way always helps me understanding them better in the core, helping not only others but even more myself in the process.
