About Us

Roam Digital is a full-service digital consultancy established in 2013. We design and develop award-winning digital products and offerings for enterprise clients across New Zealand, USA, Australia and Europe.

Across every engagement, our focus is on providing high-quality solutions to facilitate success and growth for our clients. This emphasis on excellence is reflected in our culture, which is performance-driven and encourages collective learning and professional development. We strive to have the right leadership in place to support and mentor individual contributors throughout the organisation, at every level of seniority.

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 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 designers 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
  • Experience with, or a keen interest in, React Native is nice to have
  • Bonus points for experience with Node.js, GraphQL and app store (Apple/Google) releases
  • 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
  • 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 you are:

  • 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. 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.

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 ;)
