About Us

Are you looking for an opportunity to make a real difference in your next role?

At Osho, our purpose is to radically accelerate the clean-energy revolution - starting with smarter, safer, and more efficient homes. We’re focused on improving experiences for people through the application of technology, data, and a deep understanding of human behaviour.

Why? As a society, we need to decarbonise and accelerate the transition to alternative energy sources. Existing solutions are expensive and disparate, with limited functionality.

Osho is driven by purpose, real innovation, and ambition. We have a talented team spread across New Zealand, with a creative space by the beach in Takapuna, and a Design Lab in Christchurch where our physical products come to life. We're more than happy to take on someone who wants to work remotely from a different location across New Zealand too, or wants to relocate.

We closed a $12m capital raise late 2021, so we're well funded and ready to grow. Our team is smart, curious and has some big goals - so if you’re interested in joining a fast-growing and startup that is design-led and puts people at its core, then we’d love to hear from you! 

We're also currently in stealth mode, so we'll share more with you during the recruitment process 😁

The Role

We're looking to grow our Digital Engineering Team. This is a senior role and you'll be helping us to extend our capabilities with your excellent software skills and guidance. We have an existing small team, systems outlines, concepts, functional prototypes, test setups, and scripts - and we need to resolve these to deliver a real product to market.

Some of the things that you might be involved in during your first few months include:

  • Working with the Product, Design, and Embedded Systems teams as well as our Front-end and Cloud engineers to build amazing products

  • Building and maintaining API and services to support Mobile and Hardware development

  • Contributing to CI/CD pipelines and development automation using DevOps, IaC, and scripting

  • Building backend systems for distributed IoT components

  • Helping with BAU operational support and troubleshooting

This position can be located anywhere in NZ as long as you are open to working remotely!

About You

We think you’ll be a fit for this role if you possess the following:

  • Self-motivation and drive

  • Strong backend development or full stack development experience, ideally 8+ years 

  • Experience with Javascript, Python, .Net, Go or Java (we are mainly using Javascript at present) 

  • The ability to build backend software using popular frameworks and libraries from high-level architecture

  • Capability to work as part of a team, but also able to focus on hitting individual milestones

Nice to have's:

  • Experience with full stack development, as you could potentially be involved with front end development in the future!

Research shows that while men apply for jobs when they meet ~ 60% of the job criteria, women and other marginalised groups tend to apply only when they check every box. So if you think you have what it takes, but are not sure you check every box, we still want to hear from you 🙌


  • A competitive salary and employee share scheme (ESOP)

  • A remote-first culture - work from home or come into the office, it's totally up to you!

  • Great new headphones when you join

  • Flexible hours - we focus on effort and outcomes, so adjust your hours around your children, hobbies, or other commitments

  • A schedule of fun team events throughout the year (ziplining, knife throwing, lawn games, what's next?)

  • Office dogs

  • Unlimited annual leave so that you can take the time that you need to re-energise

  • Newly-refurbished offices in Auckland (by the beach) and Christchurch (by the park)

  • The opportunity to learn and develop from some of the best and brightest minds in the industry!

Let's Talk!

We’d love to hear from you! No need to submit a cover letter - just click 'apply' to answer a few short questions of ours (we find this gives us more insight) and attach your CV.
