Wellington is a hub for digital and technology start-ups, established, industry-leading businesses and everything in between. So, whether you’re looking to get in on the ground floor or learn from the best, you can take your next career step right here in New Zealand’s creative capital.

Working in Wellington means you can get a foot in the door at internationally-recognised businesses including global marketing agency Resn, cloud-based accounting software company Xero, the pinnacle in special effects Weta Workshop and Weta Digital, game development gurus Pik Pok, online marketplace Trade Me, and many more.

These companies could base themselves out of any major city in the world (as could you), but the allure of Wellington’s work/life balance is part of their success. Having flexible work hours is a norm and getting out and about in Wellington for lunchtime breaks is encouraged.

Innovation is at the heart of what we do

Wellington has one of the highest-educated populations in New Zealand which means you’re sharing ideas with some of our country’s sharpest minds, but the region also has a culture of innovative workplaces. It’s not just about the work you’re doing, but where you’re doing it.

Businesses are fitting out their offices with all the bells and whistles of the new modern workspace. Standard offices have been transformed into hubs for collaboration. Instead of closed-in offices, you’ll find breakout rooms with state-of-the-art tech to connect to teams all over the world.

You’ll start your workday with stunning views of Wellington city or blow off steam at inhouse gyms, yoga spaces or even climbing walls. In true Wellington fashion, you’ll be hard-pressed to find an office without a top-quality coffee machine in the break room and bright, airy open-plan offices to encourage a social workplace. These offices are anything but ordinary.
