Write your story with Zip

Join Zip’s Technology function, responsible for building and maintaining seamless, secure and sustainable products that enable customers to shop with confidence and merchant partners to grow their brands.

The NZ engineering team works closely with our US team on Zip’s US merchant products.

We use microservices, domain-driven design and event-driven architectures to ensure scalability and performance as we grow, and all this presents some fascinating engineering problems for our squads to solve. 

As a Senior Software Engineer in our US Merchants team, your purpose is to develop and deploy high quality software, as part of your product squad. You’ll work with your team on the merchant experience, liaising with cross-functional teams and departments. 

We are seeking two experienced software engineers to become part of our team. While both positions involve full-stack responsibilities, one will have a slightly greater emphasis on front-end development, while the other will lean slightly more towards back-end expertise.

What you’ll bring to the team

Zipsters work on a broad range of initiatives, and our skills and experiences all look a little different. What really matters to us is that you’re a great fit with our four Values, and have a desire to learn and grow.

Whether you meet some or all of the desirable attributes below, we’d still love to hear from you:

  • 5+ years’ experience working as a software engineer in an agile team
  • Experience with .NET Core, React (and Typescript is desirable) 
  • Experience with relational and non-relational databases
  • Exposure to cloud platforms (Azure preferrable)
  • Experience with Test-driven development (TDD) 
  • Working experience across RESTful API design, Microservices, IaC, CICD, Docker
  • Flexibility, an open mind, curiosity and passion for learning
  • Our values in your DNA: Customer First, Own It, Stronger Together and Change the Game


What you’ll get in return

Winners of the 2023 Leadership & Enterprise Growth award - Deloitte Tech Fast 50.

Zip is a place where you’ll get out what you put in. The newness of our sector means we need to move at pace and embrace change, and our promise to you when you join the team is that you’ll feel empowered and trusted to make things happen quickly. 

We want you to feel welcome and as though you have the support to be yourself, and care for yourself at work. Because it’s important to us that you make the most of the opportunities you’ll get to grow your skills and your career, surrounded by smart, friendly people and leaders that have your back. 

We think these are just some of the best things about being a Zipster. We will also offer you:

- 25 days paid leave annually, including birthday leave and quarterly wellbeing days
- 16 weeks paid parental leave for primary carers, and 4 weeks for supporting carers
- Family support policies including miscarriage bereavement leave and domestic violence leave
- Mental health and wellbeing initiatives, including $299 annual wellbeing allowance, free fitness classes, and discounted gym membership
- 2 days paid volunteering leave per year
- Fee-free Zip products, and discounts with Zip merchant partners (AU)
- Share incentive programs to give you skin in the game
