ABOUT US

Roam specialises in building 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.

With a strong brand presence in NZ, we’ve expanded onto Aussie soil with our newest Sydney office. We’re looking for a talented Backend Developer with a passion for technical innovation and a flair for stakeholder management. 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. We want someone willing to pick up the reins on Node.js and help take our "Sauce" MBaaS to the next level.
