About Us

We are Zip, a global Buy Now, Pay Later company providing fair and seamless solutions that simplify how millions of people pay. Our journey began in Australia, has taken us to multiple different markets and we’re just getting started.

We exist to create a world where people can live fearlessly today, knowing they’re in control of tomorrow. Focused on product innovation that puts people at the centre, we put the financial well-being of our customers and merchant partners at the heart of everything that we do.

The role

Working as part of a distributed team in New Zealand and with the option to meet at our offices in Christchurch or Auckland, you’ll be building the next generation of products for our US merchant partners - serving the needs of SME, mid-market and enterprise partners for our BNPL solutions, supporting them in building their retail and ecommerce businesses with Zip’s data and value-added services.

We use the latest Microsoft tech stack (.NET 6, Azure cloud) with event-driven architecture, microservices and Kubernetes - and so the more of this you know, the better! This is a tech stack that’s been built from the ground up with no legacy code, which means you’re able to engineer, test and deploy your solutions super-fast.

Ideally you’ll be a full-stack engineer with experience of modern JavaScript / Typescript frontend development using Vue, React or Angular, in addition to solid backend skills, but if you lean one way or the other that’s fine - every day is a school day at Zip and you’ll be given lots of room to learn and grow in whichever directions you choose.

You’ll be working with modern agile development approaches, taking ownership of devops and quality for the software you create, supported by a fantastic team of engineers at every step - if this sounds exciting, we’d love to hear from you!

To help us level up, you'll bring:

  • Experience working as a software engineer in an agile team, using .NET Core to build microservices
  • Knowledge of frontend development using Vue, Angular or React
  • Exposure to cloud platforms (Azure preferable, AWS or GCP ok too!)
  • Passion for Test-driven development (TDD)
  • Understanding of RESTful API design

We’re proud to be a values-led business. They guide us in everything we do - how we work together and create game-changing experiences for our customers and fellow Zipsters.

If you only meet some of the requirements for this role, that's okay. We value a diverse range of backgrounds and ideas and believe this is fundamental for our future success. So, if you have the curiosity to learn and the willingness to teach what you know, we'd love to hear from you.

We pride ourselves on creating an inclusive workplace that provides equal opportunities to all persons regardless of their age, cultural background, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, disability, veteran status, or anything else.

What’s in it for you?

We offer a variety of perks and benefits to support you at both work and home. Here’s a taste of what you can expect!

  • Flexible working culture
  • Share incentive programs
  • Generous paid parental leave
  • Leading family support policies
  • Paid birthday and volunteering leave
  • Mental health and wellbeing program
  • Epic office with a casual dress code
  • Fun team with high-growth hustle

We want to make sure our recruitment processes are accessible and inclusive for all people. If there's any adjustments that need to be made to ensure you have a fair and equal experience in our recruitment process please let your Talent Acquisition Partner know. We are also a proud 2023 Circle Back initiative employer and commit to respond to every applicant.

Join us on our mission to be the first payment choice, everywhere and every day.
