Kia ora! We are currently recruiting for a Wellington-based role.
Are you an experienced and versatile developer looking for a successful, inclusive place to work? This is your chance to join a multi-award winning, well-established digital design agency and work on innovative, large-scale, customer-centric and public good projects. This role is based in Wellington.
You will be comfortable working with our clients, project managers and our team of experienced specialists — UX and UI designers, information architects and back-end developers.
As part of the engineering team, you’ll collaborate effectively to understand UI requirements and recommend and implement solutions that follow best practices. You’ll be happy to work with our existing processes and structures and also contribute to their continuous improvement.
We’re looking for someone who can show finesse in:
HTML5 standards, semantics, hierarchy and document structure
Accessibility best practice and testing strategies
Templating with JS frameworks and/or back-end templating languages
Browser optimisation and legacy support
Preprocessors such as SCSS/SASS
Structural patterns such as ITCSS and SMACSS
Using CSS in JS frameworks
Writing data-driven JS solutions using frameworks such as Vue.js or React
Experience with cross-device and cross-browser testing
Performance budgeting and speed-related best practices
Using git effectively
Configuring build tools, specifically Webpack or Gulp
In addition to the above you should:
Love a well-formatted commit message
Make use of code linting
Be able to maintain existing solutions we have built for our clients
Have a well-honed sense of usability and understanding of interaction design principles
Show the ability to communicate with clarity; be someone who enjoys debate, and is also a fantastic listener
Have 3+ years of industry experience (preferably in an agency)
Have examples of your work to help illustrate your skillset
As a bonus, you would have experience with:
Working with data from various APIs – REST, GraphQL etc.
SEO practices, search and social optimisation metadata
HTML newsletter templating
We are NOT looking for developers who:
Rely solely on CSS frameworks (Bootstrap, Bulma etc.) for presentation
Use mainly jQuery-based plugins for their needs
Consider themselves full-stack programmers, though mostly work with back-end technologies
We offer you:
An inclusive, friendly, ego-free, creative environment
Plenty of other problem solvers to debate solutions with, in a supportive and constructive manner
Flexible and family-friendly working hours and conditions
Projects that make a difference in people’s lives
A talented team to learn from and contribute to
Development and training opportunities
A competitive salary package
Great coffee and chilled NZ wine and/or a beer or two to ease-in the weekend

Take a look around to get a sense of the work we do. You'll see a lot of design-led, beautifully engineered, public good, education and civic-oriented projects. We like creating things that make a difference.
