Our Culture and Company

SwipedOn is an established and successful SaaS business headquartered in sunny Tauranga. As a finalist in the 2018 High-Tech awards (Start-up of the Year category), SwipedOn is an exciting company with a truly global customer base and footprint.

SwipedOn prides itself on being a great place to work. We are a young, fun and friendly team who love to collaborate and be creative. We start our days with standup meetings (and great coffee) and communicate throughout the day to make sure we all work towards our common goals. We care about the environment and act as a responsible corporate (we plant a new native tree for every new customer we sign up).

SwipedOn is based in Tauranga because we value the incredible lifestyle in the Bay of Plenty (sun, surf and software!). We believe in working hard and the satisfaction of a job well done, but we also value quality of life.

What you will be doing on a daily basis...

You will be creating, managing and improving cloud-native architecture and services to support the SwipedOn platform. We’re heavy users of JavaScript in the browser and the cloud, and make good use of AWS services such as AppSync and Lambda. We’re constantly modernising our stack to be well-tested, scalable and maintainable.

Collaboration within the business is an important aspect of the role and you will be communicating with and supporting your colleagues throughout each day. You’ll be working with a young and vibrant team of developers to steadily improve our feature set and our performance.

To be successful in this role you must have…

The right attitude! We are firm believers that a great fit within our team is more important than anything else. So if you are a new grad still needing to build your skills and experience, or if you are an experienced front end developer who took a break from the professional work and eager to get back at it, please apply. We’d love to get the right candidate ramped up and comfortable with current best practices and tools.

Ideally, in addition to the right attitude, you also have…

  • At least two years’ programming experience
  • Excellent programming skills in a variety of languages and frameworks, especially JavaScript (browser and back-end)
  • Good unit testing skills and habits
  • Solid experience developing web- and mobile-centric APIs
  • Experience in modern web frameworks
  • You should be comfortable hand-coding HTML, JavaScript and CSS
  • Experience with modern front-end libraries such as Vue is a bonus
  • Experience adding integrations (think Stripe, Active Directory, Slack, Intercom, and the various AWS services)
  • Experience in using relational databases or ORMs
  • Experience with NoSQL databases such as DynamoDB is a bonus
  • Eager to dig in and get going with top industry tools and frameworks for building scalable apps
  • A keen appreciation of the factors influencing perceived load times – latency, pre-fetching, caching, etc

We're looking for a person who is…

  • Keen, curious, and never satisfied with 'ordinary'
  • A likeable person with a positive attitude
  • A natural collaborator who wants to be part of a growing team and company
  • Eager to share and eager to learn
  • Self motivated
  • Constantly innovating and driving positive change
