Full-stack Developers

Role Summary

We’re looking for enthusiastic, intermediate or senior developers with 3-5 years of commercial development experience to join our Product and Technology Team to help lead the development of our applications, integrations and APIs. Our architecture is modern, API driven, scalable, and secure, and is designed to handle large amounts of data.


We’re looking for a generalist who can do a bit of everything, and isn’t afraid of learning new skills or a challenge. A typical day could see you working with NodeJS, Vue, AWS, Serverless, Docker, RDS, DynamoDB, MySQL, PHP, Nginx, OAuth and more!


The nature of our business is such that you will be dealing with shifting priorities, and tight timeframes. We interface with many different API’s, applications and programming languages and are user obsessed. If you want to dip your fingers into a little bit of everything, and work with some modern cloud-based technologies, and a great team, you have come to the right place.


We have a Wellington office in the heart of the city near the waterfront, but as a response to COVID we’ve moved to experiment with a hybrid distributed and co-located model. We are a small tight-knit team, with a casual atmosphere, good music and free lunch everyday. We’re ambitious and focussed, but we like to have fun along the way.
