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 participate in the design, development, testing and improving of our front-end applications, including improving and modernising existing pages and creating new functionality and user experiences.

More specifically you will be responsible for developing our new user-facing features using HTML, JavaScript and CSS. Collaboration within the business is an important aspect of the role and you will be expected to be communicative and work well as part of a team, you can think on your feet and are able to work well in changing and ambiguous circumstances.

The developer role will be primarily front end-focused, but an understanding of back end languages and database design is desirable.

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 three years' programming experience
  • Excellent front-end programming skills: HTML, JavaScript and CSS
  • Good testing skills and habits
  • A keen appreciation of UI and UX best practice
  • Experience with modern front-end libraries such as Vue
  • Experience with modern build tools such as Webpack
  • A good understanding of modern APIs, REST and ideally GraphQL
  • Experience adding integrations (think Stripe/Braintree, Slack, SSO, Intercom)

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

Are you one of our legends in the making? Don’t hesitate and apply now with your cover letter and CV!

In your application please explain why you are interested in joining our company, and what attracts you to the position.

All applicants must have the legal right to work in NZ. Please note that applications without a cover letter will not be considered.
