Full time – Christchurch, New Zealand

We are a small team of web application developers with a wide range of interesting clients and projects. In the last 15 years we have worked on around 1400 projects for about 350 clients – the diversity is genuine and keeps us sharp; it also keeps us really, really busy.  

We are looking for the right person to join our team, somebody we can trust to look after people, relationships and projects. Someone willing to examine where we can improve, to take care of our detail while also being happy to lift weight on project coordination and delivery. 


About us:

We are a team of curious-minded people who support each other, hold robust debates and don’t mind helping each other move house on the weekend. We thrive on challenges, we view our successes (and failures) as opportunities for growth, and we never, ever want to stop learning. We value mindset over skill set and we believe the team is more powerful than the individual.

A technical background is not essential but it would definitely be helpful.
