Senior Full Stack Developer (Python, PostgreSQL and Javascript) at The Media Suite Ltd (Christchurch, New Zealand)

We are looking for an experienced (min 7 years) full stack engineer (Python, Javascript, PostgreSQL) to join our busy team.

You will be embedded into a multi-developer team committed to a culture of testing, automation, peer review, knowledge sharing, professional development, remote working and embracing change.

Our culture

We cherish our culture, so every hire we make is carefully considered. If you’re tempted to join the Media Suite team, be sure to read on and make sure our ideologies are aligned.

We are a team of curious-minded people who support each other, hold robust debates and don’t mind helping each other move house on the weekend. We thrive on challenges, we view our successes (and failures) as opportunities for growth, and we never, ever want to stop learning.

We value mindset over skillset and we believe the team is more powerful than the individual.

Our employment philosophy is simple. We look for the right people and then do what it takes to get them on board and keep them around. We aren’t scared to invest in the right people to help realise their potential.

Skills and experience

We are looking for a senior level developer with a computer science or software engineering degree and a minimum of 7 years real-world experience.

Ideally, you would have experience with (or the ability to quickly learn) any of the following:

  • Django

  • Ember.js (React or Angular experience will likley be portable) 

  • NodeJS

  • PostgreSQL

As part of the Senior Developer role, you’ll need to design application architecture, communicate technical decisions, be a key member of a project team and support junior colleagues. So prior experience with these will be highly valued.

Media Suite is all about the team. A part of your role is going to be helping out your colleagues so you will need to be comfortable with pair programming sessions and be happy to offer and receive feedback and advice.

We genuinely value cultural fit and attitude ahead of specific technical experience. If you think your experience will transfer to our stack - please get in touch.


  • $2,000 professional development and training budget, plus time and space for learning

  • $1,000 tech budget

  • 4% matched kiwi saver contributions

  • hardware needed for your role, usually a MacBook pro and dual monitors

  • sit to stand desk

  • barista lessons (so you can work the coffee machine)

  • weekly learning lunch (the lunch is on us)

  • flexible hours of work and the ability to work remotely

Location of work

Ideally, we would like this role to be based in Christchurch. However, about half of our development team work remotely from home offices, kitchen tables, airports and beaches from around NZ and further abroad. Effective remote working takes practice and discipline, however, for the right person with a proven track record, we would consider a remote position. You will be collaborating with an NZ based team so being in time zone is critical.

About the work

We build web applications for local and central government, national and international business, along with a handful of charitable organisations.

Our projects are generally large enough to get your teeth into, but not so big that you get bogged down forever.

We are excited to solve real-world problems, actually making a difference in improving lives, the environment and efficiency.

How we work

Our mandate is to build the right thing by combining thoughtful design with clever technology.

We use various Agile methods to deliver our projects and continually reflect upon and make improvements to our systems and processes.

Working with us

If you were part of the Media Suite Team this past year, you might have:

Been teacher and student:

  • Attended New Zealand’s largest Javascript conference.

  • Presented a topic at one of our “Learning Lunches” or local JS meetup.

  • Signed up for specialist training in areas you are passionate about.

Built meaningful things:

  • Contributed to a government-backed system to help plan, coordinate and collaborate on the Christchurch rebuild.

  • Developed a range of environmental science databases which help monitor New Zealand’s natural resources.

  • Worked on a range of initiatives providing commuters with tools to reduce their commute time.

  • Developed tools to support the professional development of teachers.

Had some fun:

  • Built something cool at the annual GovHack event.

  • Wrestled fellow devs in giant sumo suits or joined us for a whisky tasting.
