We delight our customers by doing the hard work for them, using the latest cloud technologies and best tools for the job.

This is an opportunity for a senior developer to make a big impact on our Rebates product team:

  • implement a major product re-design to take advantage of a significant market opportunity
  • help drive a high performing team culture as part of a cross-functional team
  • set the product’s architectural direction and contribute to product roadmap decisions
  • mentor other engineers.

Rebates, both paid and received, are central to our customers’ business models and their complexity means you’ll need the ability to develop a deep understanding of the product. The Rebates team has members in both Australia and New Zealand, so you’ll need strong interpersonal skills to succeed in this role.


We're looking for:

  • A confident, experienced developer who can make and communicate well-informed technical and architectural decisions
  • A strong history of developing software products in modern web and UI orientated languages and frameworks - ideally including React, Typescript, GraphQL, C#, and SQL via Dapper
  • Enthusiasm and passion
  • A sense of fun and a genuine desire to work as part of a diverse, collaborative team

Sadly due to current NZ border restrictions, for the time being we can only consider applicants with established working rights for New Zealand, who are either currently resident in NZ or have existing travel arrangements.


  • Competitive salary and stock options plan
  • Benefits include life, income protection insurance and subsidised health cover
  • Work with some of the best tech talent in Christchurch
  • Central location with free parking and easy motorway access
  • Fruit, hot & cold drinks, snacks and drinks on Friday

We pride ourselves on our positive, collaborative culture and encourage our team to come into the office - and we love being here! - but we also like to be flexible around hours and working from home.
