Senior Developer

Role Summary

We’re looking for an enthusiastic, senior developer with 5+ years of commercial development experience to join our Product Team to help lead the development of our various applications, integrations and APIs. Our architecture is modern, API driven, scalable, 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 a challenge. A typical day could see you developing modern, clean code using technologies like PHP, Node.js, TypeScript, Vue.js. Or managing infrastructure like EC2, Lambda or RDS as code using Terraform. All while using Agile, Continuous integration & Continuous Delivery to get your work to our customers fast!


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. If you want to dip your fingers into a little bit of everything, and work with some modern cloud-based technologies, you have come to the right place.


We’re based in the heart of Wellington near the waterfront. We are 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.
