Who is Zip? Zip is a high-growth tech unicorn, building products that millions of consumers use to manage their spending, and that process billions of dollars in payments annually for our merchant partners.

Headquartered in Sydney and with bases in Auckland, London and New York, we have ambitious goals to revolutionise the consumer payments experience, and to improve our customers’ lives by giving them freedom to better control their finances.

Central to this goal is our Engineering team, who work side-by-side with our Product team and use microservices, domain-driven design and event-driven architectures to solve the fascinating engineering problems our fast growth, bulging roadmap and global scale creates.

We strive to create high quality software and deliver at a high pace. Ensuring trust and psychological safety is important to enable our engineers to take risks, learn from failures and enjoy productive conflict to make better decisions.

What are we looking for? Zip NZ is looking for a .NET Core guru who is comfortable creating microservices and cloud-native applications to join our NZ Engineering team.

This is a tech stack that’s been built from the ground up, with no legacy code, and a team who are hungry to learn alongside each other.

You’ll solve complex back-end and front-end problems on customer-facing payments services, and create API integrations with payment providers.

You’ll also deliver game-changing initiatives, building products that are competition-killers and change the way people pay!Our New Zealand team operates remotely across Auckland and Christchurch, so you’ll need strong autonomous working and communication skills to deliver without constant face-time.

Proven experience in a startup, a rapidly-scaling environment or a high-performance software engineering team in a larger company is essential.

If you enjoy shipping amazing software quickly, using modern agile software development approaches, and you think about devops and quality as well as core software development, you’ll be very happy at Zip!
