“It's very important to realise that tech is an enabler. It is fabulous and can achieve great things but we need people to understand purpose, what they are trying to achieve and why.

There is a thriving tech sector in Tauranga. It’s attracting exceptionally talented individuals from around the globe. There is a range of great initiatives, leading to lots of career opportunities."

People are at the heart of what we are and why we do what we do.  

We use our skills and abilities to help people do their work better, simplify the complex and create more time for people to develop themselves and their families.

We enable people to act as kaitiaki guardians of this wonderful planet.

We want our solutions to align with the Māori concept of Taiao - a deep relationship of respect with the natural world.

Taiao Ora, Taiao Tangata.

If the environment is well, so too are the people.


We’d love to hear from human-centred designers, software developers, data analysts, visionary creatives and domain specialists who are interested in working for Cucumber.

Returning Kiwi expats, immigrants and New Zealand locals are all welcome to get in touch.
