Senior Front End Developer

January 2019

Want to help us make a digital difference crafting immersive experiences?

This role is for a senior front end developer (5yrs +) who is a self-starter and enjoys seeing a project through every part of the development process.

About Satellite
Satellite is a cross-platform production company, servicing the digital, event and activation needs of major clients. Our company of 50 staff is made up of design, software development, project management, content, television production & event/activations staff. 

We deliver websites, mobile applications, business solutions, digital signage, event technology, activations and content. We are focused on innovation and the power of connecting to the consumer with the right message at the right time, in the right location. 

About you

You'll have a variety of skills and a portfolio of projects and experience to demonstrate:

  • Excellent knowledge of modern HTML/CSS/Javascript development including all the usual things, flexbox, CSS grid, responsive web design, SASS, LESS, Bootstrap and jQuery etc
  • Experience with either AngularJS, NodeJS or ReactJS, we have mostly AngularJS apps here though
  • Preferably with a PHP and Twig templates background
  • Experience developing efficient, well-structured web based applications
  • Experience with Git, Avocode, Sketch, Invision, maybe some Docker
  • We want someone to bring the fizz and sizzle to the UI/UX.

Our front ends need to be accessible and fast, clever and interesting, useful and enabling. We expect best practice in forms and emails and occasionally in SEO. We regularly do things not done before, so experimenting, testing and adapting to the ever changing requirements of devices and screens is super important.

We also have interesting and challenging projects on our own product development road map. On these, development will be starting from scratch. So it's not all client work here at Satellite.

Satellite's a great place to work with gadgets and an R&D lab. I should also mention we provide ice-creams, coke, cake, coffee and a fully stocked bar… balanced out with fresh fruit to help prevent you feeling too guilty.

We’ve got a diverse range of clients who we look after very well, people like Coca-Cola, Fonterra, Fisher & Paykel, Spark, Telstra, NZ Rugby, ASB and a bunch more.

Satellite has been in business for 19 years and over that time has developed a respected, award-winning business. We enjoy what we do and have fun while doing it.
