New Zealand is world renowned for its entrepreneurial, imaginative and pioneering attitude. This year, 2015, the Global Innovation Index ranked us 15th in the world, ahead of countries such as Australia, Canada and Japan. With recent success stories hitting the headlines, software development in New Zealand has rapidly become a guiding light in this age of ones and zeros.

“… demand for skilled software developer jobs here is strong, so employment prospects are very encouraging…”

The country’s talent for IT has become world-famous in recent years – you only need to think of Weta Digital to know that New Zealand is the place to be for the next big break through with IT jobs. Kiwi software companies like Xero and Vend are now presenting the country’s software skills to the world, and showing that you can still have a laugh while building practical, smart and ingenious software. It’s all evidence that New Zealand is an inspiring and unique place to develop great ideas, and encourage up and coming talent. If you’re looking for software jobs in Auckland, then you’ve got a good shot.

It’s also little surprise that big international names are tapping into the talent that exists here, and Gameloft – a digital gaming and mobile apps developer – is a great example of this. While the gaming giant has its headquarters in Paris, it has a large team of 3D artists and animators working in software jobs in Auckland. Nice work if you can get it!

As it stands, the New Zealand IT industry contributes nearly NZ$20 billion to the economy – and this is a figure sure to rise given the unstoppable growth of the market, and international demand for what comes out from this part of the world. With recent calls for the building of a mini Silicon Valley in New Zealand, demand for skilled software developer jobs here is strong, so employment prospects are very encouraging.
