Marketing Developer

Nelson, New Zealand

We are looking for a multi-skilled web developer to join our marketing team. We have huge plans for our marketing site but not enough hands to get it all done. We have a cool new tech stack, content on the go and designs in the works. You will help build and refine our homepage, product marketing and content marketing sites.
