Simple isn’t easy. We should know.

During 20+ years of delivering financial planning and analytics products that are simple to use, we’ve overcome numerous complex challenges. We’ve had plenty of failures, but from each one we try to learn and push forward with an alternative approach. This is how we've stayed at the leading edge, creating products that are changing the way the world works.

Our Extract, Transform and Load (ETL) team works on the technology that gets customer data into the Phocas platform, quickly, reliably and easily. As a member of that team we’ll ask you to challenge the status quo and question how we can improve the process and the technology, with an emphasis on performance, ease of use, scalability and security.

The team has a varied remit and goes where it sees opportunity for adding value, so in this role you’ll work on a wide range of initiatives. Above all, you’ll thrive at Phocas if you get satisfaction from taking the complex and making it simple.

Why Phocas?

Our teams are empowered to solve customer problems the way they think best. We trust them to make good decisions about what problems to solve and how to solve them, and we give them the space to excel. Learning and improvement is as critical to our success as it is yours, so we set time aside for you to spend on your personal development.

We're looking for:

  • 3+ years of experience working on complex software products, preferably ones that process large quantities of data
  • A confident, experienced developer who can devise, communicate and implement well-informed technical solutions
  • A strong history of delivering software products using C#, SQL, and Entity Framework that run on cloud-based infrastructure (preferably Amazon AWS)
  • Enthusiasm, passion, a willingness to learn and a growth mindset.
  • A sense of fun and a genuine desire to work as part of a diverse and collaborative team that is empowered to make decisions.

What's in it for you?

  • Competitive salary and stock options plan
  • Dedicated time for learning and development each fortnight
  • Benefits include life cover, income protection insurance and subsidised health cover
  • Work with some of the best tech talent in Christchurch
  • Central location with free parking and easy motorway access
  • Flexible hybrid working policy

Generally Phocas is a strong supporter of international talent, however due to current visa settings and processing times, at present we are only considering applicants who hold NZ working rights for this position.
