Come and work with intelligent, creative, fun software developers in New Zealand 

Powershop needs more junior, intermediate and senior software developers to join our Rails team who are intelligent, creative and fun. We're looking for smart people who can understand the complexities of our business. 

We are in Wellington, the capital city of beautiful New Zealand and are happy to sponsor work visas for the right people. 

We are primarily recruiting RoR developers but we also have mobile and social media development going on - we are open to developers with skills across these areas and are keen to build the people we recruit. 

A bit about the Powershop Dev Team 

We are a fast, friendly, smart development team that solves complex problems in the New Zealand and Australian energy markets. We primarily develop in Rails but other technologies are becoming important too. 

We have 14 developers and 4 testers with a range of experience who work closely with the business. We manage our work through Scrum and code-review every change. We have well defined QA, release and incident processes. 
Keeping you fresh is a priority at Powershop so all our developers have the opportunity to spend 10% of their time working on projects that don't need to relate to our business. We look after you with a relaxed work environment, open and honest feedback, decent beer on Fridays, pool table and Raleigh 20 time challenges. We are keen to build the team and your career so focus on training and growth with rewards for progress. 

A bit about Powershop 

Powershop is the world's first online energy store. With 50,000 customers in New Zealand we're ready to take the revolution overseas. 

We are the noisy, disruptive upstart of the electricity business. In an industry that's always been reluctant to look consumers in the eye, 
Powershop is testimony to the value of obsessing about our customers. In fact, thanks to the marvels of modern technology, we've brought people good old fashioned value for money and customer service. It's made us not only the fastest growing power company in New Zealand but the one with the highest customer satisfaction rating. 

You don't get to remake electricity retailing from the ground up by employing cynics or clock-watchers. We look for Powershop people, the kind of people who actually give a damn. 
Our culture is to challenge and question, have fun, be great at what we do and be a little irreverent.
