Careers

Working at e-see®

We're a small innovative team headquartered in the sunny bucolic seaside port of Devonport, a stones throw (and short ferry ride) from downtown Auckland, New Zealand (recently ranked  9th best city in the world to live by Monicle Magazine).

In addition, Devonport is one of the best places to live and work in Auckland.

We love beautiful design, iconic logos, great brands, helping brands be bigger, better, brighter, oh and strong coffee.

Positions don't come up too often, but when they do we want talented, adaptable intelligent, fun and canny folk on the team.

What we look for

These are the traits we look for and value when considering new staff.

Integrity

Honour, honesty, the intention to do the right thing. Without it you won't get far here or anywhere. Guaranteed.

Talent

The potential to excel in your chosen field. We don't really know where it comes from but in our experience it's generally a case of you've either got it or you don't.

Passion

If you don't love what you do, if you don't get excited about the work you will do - then forget it. We have no wish to spend our working lives with people who are just showing up for a pay cheque.

Performance

At the end of the day, when the client deadline is looming, it's all about performance. We look for people that can, have (and mostly importantly) will perform, when it counts.

Compatibility

Individual performance isn't enough, we are a team and need to perform as a team. You need to be prepared to lend a hand when it's needed. So we're looking for team players.

What we offer

Our philosophy is to find good people and then work hard to keep them around.

Flexibility

Want to work 60 hours a week? Want to work 20 hours a week? 9-5 in an office? 10-3 from home? We believe in shaping the job to fit the person and will work with you to fit your work in with your life, not the other way round.

Travel

Sure we're based in Devonport but we're thinking global. The nature of our work and the tools we use, makes it possible to work anywhere. If you are so inclined we can provide opportunities for you to travel while you work or to work while you travel.

Personal growth

We are committed to helping our staff increase their skills and will work with you so that you can develop in the areas that interest you.

Telecommuting

We realise our office is not in at the center of the universe or even of your life. So we support Telecommuting where it'll make a difference to outcomes. But there are considerations to consider.

Respect

We work hard to keep our team happy in their work and engaged. However we recognize that some folk need to move on, to grow and enhance their careers at some point. We respect that.

A note about Telecommuting

We like the idea of telecommuting. It helps saves travel time, wasted energy, commuting frustration, lost hours and helps save the planet. In practice it can be challenging.

We like it especially when the role involves a lot of time with detailed work where the telecommuter needs to focus without distraction (e.g. coding/design) or has to work outside normal business hours (e.g. international support). We also like telecommuting for sales and account management where the telecommuter is spending as much time as possible with clients.

We're also a digital agency, our key products are web apps, we build online brand experiences and our services are typically delivered online or through the ether. We use online tools whenever we can.  So we walk the talk. 

However, no video conferencing, phone, Google™ hangout or Skype™ session will ever replace the nuance and communication possible when we're in the same room.

So we like our telecommuters to spend plenty of time at HQ.
