Who We Are

We are an eclectic, bright and curious bunch. We're tech-heads, thought-leaders and are driven to make a difference. Our success comes from focusing on innovation everyday (and via hackathons) and using our diverse and collective intelligence to solve problems quickly, creatively and effectively.

We're a medium sized start-up, meaning we have the financial backing to have leading edge systems and tools but small enough so that everyone is empowered to directly impact our product and customers. We work hard and move fast, free from bureaucracy and politics to 'make it happen' everyday.

We love celebrating -  everything! Birthdays, babies, big wins, little wins and anything in between, and our company awards and events are legendary! Check out our Instagram #hipagesteam to get the picture.

Most importantly, all employees get to become owners of hipages (through our employee share program), which means we're united in our mission and everyone gets to have their say.  The energy and 'buzz' of our office is palpable and infectious.

Finally, hipages is proud of our 50/50 gender diversity (which is almost unheard of in our industry) and we appreciate and welcome all differences.

If this sounds like you, then welcome home.
