WANTED: Front + back end devs feat. PHP / NodeJS awesomeness.

Auckland, New Zealand · Development


Who we are:

Hi there, friend. You might have seen us around. We’re Young+Shand. Auckland-based digi agency and NZ’s largest indie. Creatively speaking, we’re made up of copywriters, art directors, digi designers, and front and back end devs along with 3D/motion and photo/video peeps.

Clients we do work for on the regs feats. such names as 2degrees, Steinlager, Speights, Mac’s, Smirnoff, V, NZI, and NZ Blood just for starters. And if that list wasn’t tasty enough, we’ve just added some new clients into this mix. So we’re on the look out for a few super-talented code wranglers who’d like to jump onboard and add their awesomeness to ours.

Who you are:

Front end. Back end. Full stack. We don’t discriminate at Y+S, so if you’ve spent at least the last five years describing yourself as one of these then chances are you have the sort of experience we’re looking for.

Stuff you’ll def need to know includes PHP, Wordpress, Javascript and NodeJS. Stuff that falls into the bonus bucket includes Silverstripe, Laravel or any other MVC framework. And you’ll get extra brownie points if you know Linux particularly with AWS.

Unlike, say, product development, Y+S is a fast-paced place to work and you’ll get lots of different stuff thrown your way. You’ll need to be able to manage multiple projects at once and work using a variety of different frameworks that includes such names as Laravel, Wordpress, and ReactJS. Server testing. Front end polishing. Implementation and unit testing. Building dope websites and campaign based digital creative.


It’ll all be coming your way, so to ace this role you'll need:


Loads of cool things. Y+S is a buzzy hive of talented people making cool digi stuff. Translation = the people are great and the culture’s better. Also, we’re an independent agency and absolutely committed to help our peeps grow and learn new stuff. And we’re based in Britomart which puts us (i.e. you) in the centre of everything. Oh, and there’s free lunch on Fridays and a beer chiller stocked full of suds, not that should sway your thinking or anything.
