SilverStripe is looking for an enthusiastic and creative intermediate or senior-level developer to join our dedicated Open Sourcerers team. You will have a passion for open source, problem solving and be excited about shaping the future of SilverStripe products.

Our ideal applicant will have strong knowledge of Object Oriented PHP and JavaScript. We’re working with a modern frontend stack (React/Redux/GraphQL), so experience in this area is desirable.


We hire the best. We look for well-rounded people who:

  • Are technically skillful and genuinely interested in technology as a creative pursuit and not just a job

  • Thrive in a team driven, fast-paced work environment - your team can rely on you to pitch in and help them get over the line every time.

A detailed job description is available on request.


If you are willing to share your skills with us, here’s what we can do for you.

Provide a family friendly environment

SilverStripe is a grown-up company. We want to create an environment that has all the excitement and intellectual stimulation of a startup but with a sensible business model. We don't have ninjas and rock stars working 80-hour weeks. We do enjoy working with smart people in an efficient and disciplined manner. Many SilverStripers have young families and we strive to support that.

Provide plenty of opportunities for professional development

There are plenty of opportunities for learning — we pay for SilverStripers to attend conferences and training; we hold our own monthly hackdays; and we encourage knowledge sharing through regular internal events likes “Show & Tells”, "Lunch & Learns" and “Guild Meetings”. We've got something on every week. Mostly, you will be working alongside super talented people across all fields. They’ll share their love of the craft with you and help you grow your skills.

Give you more than just a job

We’re also active in the New Zealand tech scene. We’re committed to growing the next generation of developers and we volunteer regularly at code schools with organisations like Catalyst, Gather and Summer of Tech. Giving back feels amazing.

Show you a great workplace culture

SilverStripe is big on things like building trusting relationships, using technology to solve important problems, and helping others reach their goals. We actively foster a culture that supports our core values of honesty over comfort; adaptability over guarantees; collaboration over control; continuous improvement over perfection; and camaraderie over corporate culture. Our culture sets us apart — it’s a key reason that brings people to SilverStripe and keeps them here.

Applicants for this position should have NZ residency or a valid NZ work visa.
