Internal Systems Developer - New Zealand - Wellington

Catalyst IT is a global team of skilled open source technologists. We specialise in developing, designing and supporting enterprise-grade systems using open source technologies.

We are looking for a developer to join our team in our Wellington office to work with our Internal Systems Manager supporting existing systems and implementing new ones. We’re looking for someone with a passion for open source, who can think innovatively and creatively and is ready to take on further training and knowledge to grow into a great senior developer.

In this role you will need be working primarily with Python and PHP, so you should have demonstrable experience with either. You’ll also be working with JavaScript and knowledge of common JS frameworks such as React would be helpful. You’ll be working with Linux all day every day so proficiency with the Linux command line and operating systems will be very useful.

While this is not a client facing role, good interpersonal and communication skills are essential as you’ll be working with a range of internal people and teams in order to successfully manage these systems.

Previous experience with any other open source solutions and applications will be a definite advantage as well so please be sure to note these, or any open source contributions you’ve made.

Being a good employer is really important to us. We make sure our staff have all of the support they need to grow their skills. We get together every Friday afternoon to relax, share company news from around the world and celebrate the achievements of our staff.

We also offer health insurance, flexible working hours, plenty of training opportunities, and a great central location.
