Front-end developer


We are looking for a Front-end Developer to join our growing Product & Development team, responsible for building insights-driven, user-focused digital products that our audiences love.

In this role, you’ll be working on the ever-evolving rnz.co.nz, where significant changes are planned for later this year. You’ll also contribute to the development of new products and journalistic outputs to help us keep up with the rapidly growing demand for RNZ’s independent content.

We are looking for someone who is experienced in delivering fast, flexible and accessible front-end systems, who is keen to advance front-end practice at RNZ. You have the technical nous to write code that easily adapts to changing requirements and enjoy talking to stakeholders and users to ensure your code meets their needs. You take care to understand existing processes, challenge perceived wisdom and suggest better alternatives as appropriate.

Familiarity with Ruby on Rails is a definite plus, however on-the-job training and mentorship will be offered for the right candidate.

We offer an exciting opportunity to work in a collaborative, cross-functional team that values learning and significantly contributes to RNZ’s public service mandate. We have flexible working arrangements and encourage involvement in the wider tech community.

This role is based in Wellington.

Please note: A complete application includes your covering letter and a CV.
