People are at the heart of everything we do. For real. The Flux crew is vital to the success of our platform, our products and our company. They're what makes Flux, well, Flux. We work together to discover new ways people can experience energy, sharing our knowledge and expertise with each other to truly build and design an energy experience like no other.

Yes, power is what we do as a business, but we also believe in empowering people. We're committed to giving our clients and their customers the ability to manage their power themselves. We make the whole process transparent and easy, unlike any other energy experience out there.

We look at the big picture - outside of our teams, systems and processes. We think beyond to understand the issues and find solutions.

We're brave, we're bold, and we find a way. We learn best by doing. We believe trying and failing is better than not trying at all.

Benefits and perks

Here's why you'll love life at Flux.

We value the exceptional humans that work here.

Wellington is NZ’s tech hub so we offer competitive pay and flexible hours. And work-life balance is important to us. We give our crew extra holiday hours so they can take more time off over the Christmas break and come back refreshed. At Flux you’ll be working at a place where everyone feels welcome and able to contribute their best work. Flux is super diverse. You’ll work with people from all sorts of backgrounds, from ex-pastry chefs and baristas to tech talent who’ve jumped ship.

We love the work that we do.

We engineer technology that makes people’s lives better. Work with a group of talented experts who regularly contribute to the local tech and product design communities through volunteering their expertise and time. At Flux, you’ll be able to shape the future of your own career by upskilling at regular hackdays, conferences (and unconferences), and designing your own learning and development pathways through courses and workshops and by trying new things.

Sweet treats.

Thirsty? We’ve got you covered with Friday Fives and beverages to celebrate cool stuff worth celebrating . Yes, of course there’s coffee – with two machines on-site, you’ll be making it yourself (or convincing your colleagues with barista skills to make one for you).

Knowledge is power.

We pride ourselves on giving all Fluxters the information they need to do their jobs well. You’ll get the most up-to-date information about the business at our monthly All Hands meetings, the Fluxtomer digest, daily emails, standups, and Slack. And if you’re ever unsure about something, the Flux crew is always around and happy to answer questions.

Fun times.

One benefit of having amazing coworkers is enjoying each other’s company, and we make up some good excuses to have fun together. At lunch, you can head out for a game of social soccer or netball, or stretch it out at a yoga class. Pool table and video games are upstairs in the open plan kitchen space. Our Friday Fives are a great way to connect with coworkers and unwind after the (long) week. During the year, we throw family-friendly events and activities, and our Christmas parties have been known to get a bit fancy.

We're looking for talented people to join our team.
