Working at Invenco in New Zealand

Auckland Skyline

Kia Ora (Welcome)

Invenco was founded in Auckland, New Zealand in 2009 by celebrated kiwi entrepreneur, Sir Peter Maire.  It is now recognized as one of New Zealand’s foremost technology companies employing over 220 people.

Headquarters is located in Northcote, on Auckland’s North Shore, in a suburban light industrial area.  It is spread across two buildings a short walk apart on Kawana Street.   The main campus is used for company-wide gatherings and includes an expansive cafeteria, fully equipped gymnasium, barbecue equipped deck and well-used pool table.   

Invenco’s Research and Development is focused on its Auckland hub along with logistics, service, support and local business development.  It is also the global base for administration and financial services, marketing and human resources.  There is also a small engineering hub in Christchurch (in the South Island) and remote workers in various locations across the North Island.

BENEFITS

In addition to the Invenco Dozen there are specific benefits available to our Auckland and New Zealand team. Many of these contribute to our Wellbeing and Social programs which are enthusiastically run and supported by Invenco volunteers.   Some of the key ones include:

  • Monthly social club events
  • Weekly Friday drinks
  • Regular deliveries of fresh fruit boxes
  • Free flu shots every winter
  • Life and wellness lectures
  • Access to free counselling
  • Supplemented healthcare insurance
  • Take your birthday off (or a day close to it)
