ABOUT US

Roam specialises in building a range of awe-inspiring digital products for customers in NZ, US, Aussie and Europe ranging from branding & visual design, mobile apps, user experience, high-end web development and tying it all into the internet of things. Android or iOS, we're all friends here. We develop with a strong focus on design-led thinking producing innovative and stunning apps with amazing, behind-the-scenes code.

We are looking for a Tech Lead with a flair for frontend development who's been around the block and seen it all in a variety of industries. From startup to enterprise-scale projects, you’ve been there, done that. You’re a tinkerer, troubleshooter, problem-solver and sleeve-roller-upper combining technical mastery, solution design, stakeholder management and team mentoring all in one.

YOUR NEW JOB

  • You’ll be hands-on as the Tech Lead in one or more of our high-stake client projects
  • You’ll be the Master of the Craft mentoring our devs all day, everyday
  • Owning the product from start to finish, working closely with the PM on technical decisions and planning
  • Building trust with the client and translating their business needs into viable business solutions
  • Pushing the boundaries of the spec and blowing our clients away with innovative solution design
  • Security - you know how to poke holes in systems and how to patch them
  • Reviewing PRs and assisting our devs with complex technical questions
  • Removing road blocks, finding workarounds and pushing the team to pursue excellence in everything we do

WHAT YOU KNOW

  • Great experiences are made of stunning interfaces & clever code
  • You know first-hand how to craft a complete solution from start to finish, including every single component of the solution
  • Frontend development is your jam, but you’ve done more than just dabble in backend and mobile too
  • Javascript / TypeScript frontend development using React + Redux and/or Angular is and will remain your first love
  • Experience with Vue, Node.js and GraphQL
  • Know SQL? or NoSQL? We’re not prejudiced; we love databases that work for the solution
  • CI/CD experience with AWS or other cloud platform providers
  • Resumes at the top of the stack include existing sites, web apps or GitHub repos

WHO YOU ARE

  • You live and breathe the qualities of an Exceptional Roamer - you’re curious, passionate, honest, empathetic and pursue excellence everyday
  • You’re pragmatic and don’t over-engineer solutions
  • You take ownership of the product from the beginning to the very end
  • You take the lead and naturally inspire and motivate your team mates
  • You’re proactive and take initiative at every opportunity
  • You understand the importance design plays in building successful products

BENEFITS

  • Awesome location - 2 minutes from Britomart, Downtown Auckland
  • Birthday leave, monthly company BBQs on the balcony, a dedicated games lounge, active social club and a bustling lunch room with free fruit, coffee & candy
  • We'll train you further with a range of great opportunities and innovative projects under the guidance of our Head of Web, talented Architects and dev teams across NZ and Australia
