Product Developer

Wellington, New Zealand · Permanent


Are you a passionate web developer who dreams of working on an open source product?

At SilverStripe we are looking for a Product Developer to join our public sector product team. This team works closely with users (developers and communicators) to ensure that our product is continually evolving and meeting web best practices.

You will work closely with users to create and deliver enhancements, while using the best coding practice, solid documentation for up-skilling and collaboration to solve problems and find meaningful solutions. The team contributes to open source for our wider community to benefit from.

You will be part of a close-knit team of developers that encourage camaraderie, honesty, and active engagement and participation in all team activities, including regular foosball tournaments and indulging in Wellington’s great cafe culture (so many WOAP burgers…). The team prides itself on supporting each other to improve and learn.


We are interested in well-rounded people who:

Here are the specifics of what we look for:


We're family friendly

SilverStripe is a grown-up company. We want to create an environment that has all the excitement and intellectual stimulation of a startup but with a sensible business model. We don't treat you like a robot by making you work 80-hour weeks. We do enjoy working with smart people in an efficient and disciplined manner. Many SilverStripers have young families and we strive to support that.

We take professional development seriously

There are plenty of opportunities for learning — we pay for SilverStripers to attend conferences and training; we have an awesome mentoring programme; we hold our own monthly hackdays; and we encourage up-skilling through regular internal events likes “Show & Tells”, "Lunch & Learns" and “Guild Meetings”. We've got something on every week. Mostly, you'll be working alongside super smart designers, developers and scrum masters. They’ll share their love of the craft with you and help you grow your skills.

We have an awesome culture

SilverStripe is big on things like building trusting relationships, using technology to solve important problems, and helping each other achieve their goals. We actively foster a culture that supports our core values of honesty over comfort; adaptability over guarantees; collaboration over control; continuous improvement over perfection; and camaraderie over corporate culture. Our culture sets us apart — it’s a key reason that brings people to SilverStripe and keeps them here.
