Joining EROAD is a great career move. We look at potential when we’re hiring, and your ability to grow with the role. We employ only the best, and ensure that our staff have the skills, training and technology to do their best work.
How you’ll fit in at EROAD is important as well. We’re really proud of our company culture and finding people with the right attitude is just as essential as a great CV.
Working at EROAD means learning from people who are experts in their field. It also means working hard – we have to, to be able to grow as fast as we need to! But we encourage a healthy work/life balance and our low staff turnover tells us we’ve probably got the balance right.
We have staff from all over the globe – 31 countries at last count – and we may just have the highest rate of boat/surfboard/windsurfer ownership of any technology company, anywhere.
EROAD was established to modernise New Zealand’s paper-based RUC regime and in 2009 launched the world’s first GPS/cellular-based road charging system.
Our solution can be readily and rapidly scaled and deployed across entire jurisdictions because it requires no roadside architecture, and uses a SaaS-based web service.
We’re now a world leader in our field and expanding rapidly as we enter new markets.
As EROAD expands into new markets, so does our need for highly skilled Java developers, solutions architects, product managers, analysts, sales staff, customer service representatives, content creators and all the other roles that are essential to an innovative global technology company.
Most of our staff are based at our Albany headquarters but our other offices are growing fast, too.

"It’s really cool to know it’s not just the company’s success, it’s your success too."
“One of the best things about working at EROAD is the scale of some of the problems we get to look at. With the rate of growth of the company we’re always trying to think ‘what would this look like if it were 10 times bigger, or 100 times bigger’.”
"The CEO met me and found out what kind of person I was and what my skills were. I thought that was really good. If the CEO wants to hire me, it means I must be good at something."
Soona spends three months a year travelling for work, visiting new markets.
What does your role involve?
I communicate with regulatory stakeholders to stay on top of policy developments and ensure our products meet regulatory rules and requirements.
How did you end up at EROAD?
I was working for The Treasury in Wellington and Brian and Rebecca contacted me through LinkedIn. A month later I was living in Auckland!
And you were the second EROADer to finish Round the Bays?
Yeah. It started as a fitness goal and turned into a hobby. Running is good for time out.
We have staff from all over the globe – 25 countries at last count!
What EROADers do in their spare time:
Your first interview at EROAD is likely to be with your prospective manager and our HR manager. This gives us a chance to find out more about your experience and background and gives you an insight into our team and the role you’ve applied for.
If it’s for a technical position, such as a Java developer role, we’ll ask you to sit a technical test prior to your interview. If successful, you’ll be shortlisted and we’ll get you back in to meet a second panel.
At this stage you’ll also have a chance for an informal chat with the people you will be working closely with. You’ll also meet our CEO, Steven Newman. This is a great opportunity to gain his insights into the direction of EROAD.
Once the recruitment process begins, things move along relatively quickly. Some candidates have been known to walk out with job offers within a week of applying.
If it doesn't happen that fast in your case, don't worry, we'll be in touch! We have a large number of applicants for all of our roles, and need to be sure that we select the right people for each.
We are very proud of our acceptance rate – less than 2% of our offers are declined by candidates. We think that's testament to our fantastic culture and focus on innovation. We hope you agree!
Technology is New Zealand’s fastest growing sector, contributing $19.3b annually to the economy and employing more than 62,000 people.
EROAD welcomes applications from overseas candidates and is happy to sponsor working visas.

You can also do what lots of us do: live right by the beach and still be a few minutes’ drive from the office by basing yourself at one of the beach suburbs, from Orewa down to Takapuna. Commuting from the south side of the harbour bridge is easy, since you’re going against the traffic, and buses run direct from downtown to the Albany Bus Station.
