Job detail

At Trade Me, we’re about connecting Kiwi to create the life they want. Whether it’s the big things like finding a home, a job, a car or growing their business, or the smaller things, like finding that right bedside table or parting ways with some old stuff.

Nothing beats getting together to have some fun and celebrate our success. Join us in the office on payday for company paid lunches. Friday drinks and nibbles every fortnight, annual Trade Me company awards, celebrations and more.

* You’re passionate, have bright ideas and a plan to bring them to life!
