Full-stack Java/REACT developer – remote, hybrid or office based 

Would you like to join a growing kiwi IT company taking on the world? We’re a mobility software product company going head to head with big global players and winning. 


About the company 

Torque IT Solutions is an IT company with offices in Auckland, New Zealand and Berlin, Germany and provides a leading edge customer onboarding platform for auto finance and mobility solutions. Our culture is very important to us. As a team we have defined our values and behaviours we aspire to live up to. We are not perfect (even though we try…) but Communication, Can-Do, Ownership, One Team as well as Passion & Pride are the values that drive and define our everyday interaction. 


About the products 

We create solutions that help everyday people to get access to finance and mobility solutions. 

We have a range of Cloud/SaaS and traditional web applications running on a modern Java & React technology stack.  


About the role 

You would be part of our product development team and help us bring our products and infrastructure to the next level. 

You would be involved in the full product development cycle, with a special emphasis on: 

  • Developing new features: As part of a high performing team, you implement new features using the best available tools/technologies.  

  • Managing the development process: From the feature implementation to its final testing, you focus on automation. By using build tools (maven, npm, webpack) and our continuous integration server (Jenkins), you ensure that as fewer manual tasks as possible are required until the application is deployed 

  • Maintaining high quality standard: You will develop and use solutions and methods to ensure the quality of the product like implementing test suites (e.g. Unit tests, Integration tests...), checking the code against automatic quality gates, reviewing pull requests, defining/implementing solutions that can be used across the company’s different projects. 

  • Designing and maintaining the architecture: Based on the feature requirements and the customer configuration, you adjust the current architecture and ensure the scalability of the solution. Performance tuning is a key aspect for us. 

  • Agile team: By following the SCRUM standard meetings (Planning, Daily Standups, Demo session) in a 3-week sprint, you drive the incremental evolution of the product and would be an active player shaping the team and organisation. 


You would work with the local team closest to your location but also collaborate with the rest of the team overseas on common challenges and features. If you are a remote worker you would need to have a certain overlay with our working hours, either based on New Zealand or German timezone.
