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.

With a strong brand presence in NZ, we’ve expanded onto Aussie soil with our newest Sydney office. We’re looking for a Frontend Developer with an eye for design and a couple of years of experience under their belt. The age of JavaScript is upon us so come join us as we tackle frontend, backend, middle-end (where the hobbits are) and everything in between. You know, like mid-front end.

YOUR NEW JOB

  • Javascript / TypeScript frontend development using React + Redux and/or Angular is and will remain your first love
  • Putting pixels into the all the right places excites you more than it should
  • ‘Slackups’ are a way of life
  • Working with our mobile and backend developers to create beautiful digital products
  • Consulting work on projects for NZ, Aussie, US and UK global companies
  • Working with backends for games, iBeacons, Taxi Apps, Video Conferencing, Fintech - we build it all.

WHAT YOU KNOW

  • React + Redux and/or Angular 2+
  • Explain what a ‘modern frontend build pipeline’ is without googling the answer
  • How to tame the IE beast
  • Great experiences are made of stunning interfaces & clever code
  • All JavaScript code is not created equal (or is that ===)
  • Bleeding edge can cut both ways
  • Bonus points for experience with Node.js and GraphQL
  • The best products are a combination of design, code and a dash of love
  • CVs to the top of the stack include existing sites, web apps or GitHub repos so you can show us what you got

WHO ARE YOU

  • You can talk to clients. Yes. In plain English.
  • You’ve written your own JS web apps in your own time
  • You know that cutting corners isn't cutting edge
  • You’re passionate about the latest tech & frameworks
  • You understand the role design plays in successful products
  • You’re keen to learn and keen to teach

We'll train you further with a range of great opportunities and exciting projects under the expert guidance of our Frontend team across NZ and Australia (8 people and growing). We're a product solutions and consulting company with a variety of work so come join the party! We value UI and design as highly as we do core 'to the metal' coding. Each needs the other to create stunning products and that's exactly what we do.
