With new projects ramping up, we’re looking for a Senior React Native Developer with an eye for design and a couple of years of experience under their belt.


  • React Native development using React + Redux is and will remain your first love, but you also don’t mind building beautiful web frontends or a native mobile app
  • Putting pixels into the all the right places excites you more than it should
  • ‘Slackups’ are a way of life

  • Consulting work on projects for NZ, Aussie, US and UK global companies
  • Building mobile apps for games, iBeacons, Rat Traps, IOT products, Video Conferencing, Fintech - we build it all.
  • You may be required to work on the client's site from time to time when required but we'll make sure you always have a Roam-base to call home ;)


  • Strong, in-depth knowledge of the React + Redux ecosystem
  • Experience building mobile apps with React Native
  • Bonus points for experience with iOS and/or Android native development
  • Angular experience is a nice-to-have
  • Explain what a ‘modern frontend build pipeline’ is without googling the answer
  • 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
  • The best products are a combination of design, code and a dash of love
  • CV to the top of the stack include existing sites, web apps or GitHub repos so you can show us what you got

We'll train you further with a range of great opportunities and exciting projects under the expert guidance of our Frontend team (11 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.


  • Awesome location in a beautiful workspace - 2 minutes from Britomart, Downtown Auckland
  • Birthday Leave, monthly company BBQs, an active social club and a bustling lunch room
