Senior Developer - Full Stack & Cloud

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.

As we scale to meet the demands of our thousands of customers and millions of end users, we're seeking a motivated and experienced Senior Full Stack developer to join our team.

We’re looking for an innovative developer with a deep interest in microservices, cloud-native architecture and a good understanding of modern API patterns. The role is primarily backend focused, but a strong understanding of front end languages and design is desirable. This is a new role and successful applicants will have the opportunity to make it their own.

We’re looking for people with...

  • At least four years’ programming experience in a range of environments
  • 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 or hosted platforms such as Firebase or 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, local storage, data replication, prediction and pre-caching, etc.

We’re looking for colleagues who are...

  • Keen, curious, and never satisfied with ‘ordinary’
  • Likeable with a positive attitude
  • Natural collaborators who want to be part of a growing team and company
  • Eager to share and eager to learn

Why you should join SwipedOn...

Team: You’ll be part of an experienced, motivated team of talented people. We’ll swap ideas and knowledge and we’ll work with you on a career development plan.

Opportunity: SwipedOn is an established, successful business and an equal opportunity employer. We're now embarking on an ambitious programme of improvement and growth. We’re well-funded (recently purchased by listed UK company SmartSpace), and in control of our destiny. It’s a great time to make your mark in an encouraging and open environment.

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

If you are looking for something new, modern and challenging then SwipedOn is your answer.
