|Principal Programmer (Mobile) Multi-award winning developer *VISA ASSISTANCE AVAILABLE*||Mobile Developer
|Are you an experienced Lead/Principal Programmer looking for your next challenge? Are you looking for something a little different? How about upping sticks, leaving it all behind (or taking it all with you if you wish) and heading to the truly stunning land of New Zealand with its rich and fascinating blend of history that reflects a unique mix of European and Maori culture. The incredible landscape allows for a wide variety of outdoor activities: golf, rugby (goes without saying), mountain biking/climbing, abseiling, water rafting the list goes on. These two islands offer so much potential and a first class way of life that as of this very moment approximately 70% of the studios staff hails from far away shores – currently there are 21 different nationalities and counting!
So we’ve gone into a little detail on the location – but what about the company?
