About Us

Recognised in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Application Testing Services for 2018/2019, Planit are experts in digital quality and the leading provider of testing solutions, services and training in Asia Pacific with over 1,500 permanent employees.

Why New Zealand:

Planit has offices in Auckland, Hamilton, Wellington and Christchurch.  We have roles available in both Auckland and Wellington and, if successful, you would be based in one of these locations.

New Zealand is slightly larger than the UK, and with a population of under 5 million there is less pressure on space and natural resources.

We don’t have the pollution, congestion and health issues found in many other countries.  New Zealand is stable, peaceful and safer than just about anywhere else in the world (according to the Global Peace Index 2019, NZ is listed as 2nd).

NZ has friendly, easy-going ways, relatively low crime rates and compact workplaces which means life is generally less stressed.

With fantastic scenery, sweeping beaches, native forests and dramatic scenery what’s not to love?  Wellington is the capital of New Zealand and is situated at the southern end of the North Island.

Wellington is a compact city which is famous for a vibrant creative culture fuelled by great food, wine, craft beer, coffee and events. Come and see for yourself what makes Wellington the coolest little capital in the world.
