Justin Hewitt Posted by Justin Hewitt, Head of Delivery

In this role you’ll be part of an established tech start-up, with a loyal base of customers and fans worldwide. Timely is an integral part of their business, and the code you craft will be widely used by thousands of appreciative users.

Timely is the world’s smartest appointment booking software servicing over 38,000 customers in the hair, beauty, and wellness industries all over the world . Our beautiful, user-friendly platform allows our customers to deliver exceptional client experiences and effortlessly manage their appointments, clients, sales, staff, stock, reporting and more. 

Our customers are our sun and we believe that a seamless and memorable customer experience is driven by the employee experience that our people have within Timely. Our people really are our secret sauce and we live and breath our values, including ‘Bring your whole self to work’. We celebrate the things that make us individual at Timely and believe that better decisions are made and better products are created when people can be themselves. 

We’re not your average tech company. We operate in a clustered remote model with 80+ people spread across Dunedin, Wellington, Auckland, Melbourne and Greater London. We hire people who make the most of #timelylife and are able to balance their personal and professional priorities well. We truly look after our people, so at Timely you can expect a competitive remuneration and benefits package, including a wellness allowance and professional development fund. 

People join us because they want to belong to a company that walks the walk and actually puts their people first. Sound good to you? Don’t wait any longer…click ‘Apply’ and we can chat!

You’ll be responsible for the front-end aspects of new feature development, as well as optimising UI interactions in the existing codebase, and seeking performance improvements.

You will be working closely with product owners, other developers, and testers in an agile environment to help craft improvements and additions to the Timely product that deliver real benefits to our customers.

A typical day might look like…

  • A thorough understanding and working knowledge of RESTful API interaction
  • Experience across a variety of front-end tools of the trade – we use Bootstrap to style components, Git for source control versioning, and Yarn, NPM, StoryBook & Webpack to keep deploy pipelines running smoothly.
  • Self-motivation and pragmatism – you love working in a fast-paced environment and understand how to balance competing priorities and understand the benefits of delivering value to end users in an iterative manner
  • Excellent communication skills – you will be able to clearly present your ideas and rationale from a remote work setting
  • Bonus: Prior experience working within an environment built on the .NET stack

What you need to know

  • This is a permanent, full-time position
  • Ideally based in Auckland, Wellington or Dunedin

  • Applications close when we find the right person!
