You’ll be involved early on in projects to understand the functional and interactive requirements of the product, and ensure that we’re always thinking with the user in mind, as well as what’s possible from a development perspective. 

You’ll be spending your days writing HTML, CSS/SCSS and JavaScript. You’ll be working closely with Backend Developers to ensure that frontend and backend implementations are aligned. You’ll be collaborating with UX researchers, designers and content writers to bring the whole experience to life through clean, reusable and scalable code.

The person we’re after

You’re an expert in your field, approachable and level-headed with a proactive personality. You’re able to visualise, articulate and solve complex problems, and have the verbal and written communication skills to help others understand them too.

Our ideal candidate is a holistic thinker with a big picture mentality, but just as comfortable in the depth of detail. They’re an absolute team player who’s not afraid to speak up, but also knows when to listen and take feedback on board. We want someone to join our team with new skills and expertise that will add a robustness to our offering moving forward, challenge our current ways of thinking, and bring new ideas to the table. 

We’re looking for a developer who is cool and calm under pressure, likes taking on problems to solve, and enjoys collaborating with not only other developers, but also UX researchers, designers, strategists and content writers. 

At Tundra, you won’t be told what to do; you’ll be encouraged to find your voice, speak up and make decisions that best suit the common goal we’re working towards. We have a fairly flat structure at Tundra to enable individual growth, embracing team differences and space to grow and evolve our offering into something new and exciting. The possibilities are endless.
