About Gallagher

Our purpose at Gallagher is ‘Protect what matters most’ and we live it every day. Our technology can be found in more than 160 countries – protecting what matters most for government sites to global HQs, wildlife parks to dairy farms, palaces to prisons, and so much more.

Born in 1938, we’re a privately-owned tech company and headquartered in Hamilton. We have over 1,300 people throughout the world, protecting our customers with products which are made right here in New Zealand.

The Opportunity

We’re looking for an experienced technical leader to help lead a diverse team of talented individuals in shaping and developing the future of farming technology. You're creative, passionate and driven to build good software. In addition to getting your hands into the code, you will also be:

  • Mentoring developers in cloud native development technologies, capabilities, and mindsets
  • Producing high quality code which sets an example for others to follow.
  • Leading and producing high level designs which allow the product to achieve the vision and goals we have for it.

The Fit

You’re interested in cloud native products and like to take on the challenge of improving developer experience, while supporting the development of new features. You will take a lead role in supporting the design and conversion of established technology into a modern platform. You will also be experienced in mentoring less experienced developers, and setting precedents for others to follow, to grow the capability of the entire team. You’re a lifelong learner who deeply understands how to get the most out of technology stacks and knows when to make pragmatic decisions. Additionally, you care about system design and productivity.

  • Well-designed web interfaces
  • Continuous improvement
  • System and architectural thinking
