We’re looking for a Wellington-based intermediate-to-senior FED to work on our revolutionary platform and app for managing version controlled map data. 

We’re a small fast-moving tight-knit team, with an ambitious roadmap. Our ideal candidate will tackle projects with flexibility and focus, while incorporating the views of others and exercising appropriate judgement. Our team is highly collaborative and you’ll be working directly with our Head of Design, Product Manager and experienced front-end team. 

You’ll have three or more years experience building solid, easy to maintain, React-based web applications—or equivalent—and be familiar with using and contributing to component libraries. 

You will be comfortable working on a day-to-day basis with a senior designer and proactively resolve minor UX design issues in tune with the agreed design. No experience with mapping is necessary. 

Koordinates vision is to introduce tech and collaboration approaches from agile software development into the slow-moving world of map authoring. Our team is friendly, frank, focussed, and distributed across three cities (Wellington, Auckland, Edinburgh).

Koordinates runs a modern front end design & development process built on top of an API-first containerised platform (dev and prod). We ship code and platform changes daily, and ship FED product as quickly as possible. Our continuous integration systems ensure that our build & test processes happen on every push to GitHub, and passing builds are a single click to deploy.

If this role has twigged your interest, get in touch to be involved in something genuinely revolutionary for the mapping world.
