Orbica Ltd

Company culture


Orbica is a specialist location data technology company with an industry edge locally - and increasingly - an international exporter of innovative and disruptive location data solutions.

As a challenger brand, we Orbicans pride ourselves on being pioneers of the location data frontier. We love to do the "too hard basket" stuff through a combination of tech smarts, out-of-the-box thinking and sheer determination.

We're a tight-knit team that thrive on exploring unknown location data territories using open source and proprietary software. If you like a fun, collaborative work environment, as well as opportunities to develop your career in new and exciting fields, Orbica may be the fit for you.

The role

Orbica is looking for full stack developer. If you love GIS and the wider geospatial sector, that's a plus, but not essential. You will absorb the world of location data through the skillsets and experience of current Orbicans. We value knowledge sharing so we're looking for a team-player who likes learning new skills and domains and sharing their skills too.

We've got a plethora of super cool projects chalked up: we're spearheading artificial intelligence, satellite technology and data visualisation in the location data industry. In this 1-year fixed-term role, you’ll be working on an exciting and forward-thinking new IoT and SaaS-based project that is making strides in NZ and abroad.

You'll need to be a good listener, quick learner, inquisitive, open to ideas, have a "can-do" ethos, a sense of humour, and be adept at developing tailored solutions for tricky problems.

We partner closely with our clients and value strong collaboration. We need a developer with a client-centric approach who enjoys direct client contact. Agile experience is highly desirable.

Core skills

We would prefer our full stack developer to have up to 5 years' of experience and/or a BS in computer science, but frankly, we'd be more impressed by an enthusiastic and inquisitive self-starter than someone who ticks all the boxes. If you think you have got what it takes, apply.

Some skills are essential. You must have client and server-side experience including HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Python and database (PostgreSQL and SQL Server) skills. Other beneficial skills include experience working with NodeJS and ES7, and AWS (CDK) experience would be a big plus.

Please note: to be considered for this role you will need to hold a valid New Zealand work visa or New Zealand residency/citizenship.

What else do you bring that can take our client offerings to another level?

If you're our new Orbican, tell us why: send us your CV and a cover letter telling us about yourself, why you are interested in location data and an innovative and forward-thinking solution you have developed that'll blow our socks off.

Applications for this role close 1 November 2019.


The application form will include these questions:
  • Which of the following statements best describes your right to work in New Zealand?
  • What's your expected annual base salary?
  • How much notice are you required to give your current employer?
