We’re a friendly, highly capable, experienced team – run by key people who designed and built Xero. We’re revolutionising the hospitality scene. Upstock is an essential tool that saves time, reduces costly errors, improves business every day. We've created an app and marketplace that helps hospo businesses grow while being extremely quick and intuitive to use.

Bonus if you have battle experience in any of the following: AWS/ECS, SQL Server, event-driven systems, EDI or third party integrators.

We’re a small, tight-knit and nimble company that's focused on understanding our customers' problems and solving them in real-time. We define and measure against customer outcomes, not by lines of code written or by tasks completed. We avoid unnecessary meetings. We value growth and learning. You'll have the flexibility to make an immediate impact, that will help shape the company, our product and our customers’ daily lives.
