Who we are

We share a vision: to create platforms that help people work together better. As well as supporting the community that helps grow the open source project, we work with a number of clients across government, banking, utilities and telecommunications.

Team and locations

 SilverStripe Founders

SilverStripe was founded by three people passionate about the limitless possibilities of the web. 



New Zealand team

We started in New Zealand and our headquarters are in the coolest little capital in the world - Wellington. We also have a great central Auckland office.

Australia team

We have offices in Melbourne, Gold Coast and Hobart.

United Kingdom team

Supporting our UK and European communities we have an office in the heart of London, just down the road from Tower Bridge.

Our core values

Honesty over comfort

We believe open communication creates better results

Adaptability over guarantees

We need to be open to change if new information reveals better solutions.

Collaboration over control

We prefer working in teams and inviting feedback, even if this means we have less control.

Continuous improvement over perfection

We don’t expect to be perfect. We release early, often and learn from mistakes quickly.

Camaraderie over corporate culture

We want to know each other as real people not “colleagues”

Open source

We are strong advocates of open source software. Our core products SilverStripe CMS and Framework are both open source and available for free download. We believe in - and have experienced firsthand - the power of an open developer community. Our open source culture extends to openly sharing what we learn. This benefits our teams, our clients and our community. more

"We open sourced SilverStripe because we want to maximise our impact, and because working together, in the open, results in better software. Being open means being vulnerable, and you can't always be in control, but it's a better way of contributing to the world and it's at the heart of who we are.


Agile is a way of running projects that places an emphasis on people, communication, working software, and responding to change. Our use of Agile extends beyond processes alone, influencing everything we do. We’ve seen firsthand how Agile empowers happier, more productive teams while delivering the best results for clients. more

Agile allows you to deliver in a timeframe, it is quicker, its output is much faster. But while Agile methodology provides a start point, an Agile mindset is also required. At SilverStripe we are adaptable to change, never afraid to readjust if new feedback shows a better path forward

Always learning

A natural extension of our open source and agile culture is a passion for learning. There are plenty of opportunities for personal and professional development at SilverStripe. This includes attending conferences, internal mentoring programmes; monthly hack days and regular internal events likes “Show & Tells”, "Lunch & Learns" and “Guild Meetings”.

We’re also committed to growing the next generation of developers and we volunteer regularly at code schools with organisations like Catalyst, Gather and Summer of Tech. Giving back feels amazing.

I like hack day because it reminds me that I am lucky to work with so many incredibly talented people, with such a diverse set of skills who really care about technology… and lunch is always good.


Working at SilverStripe is a box of cats filled with glitter and gifts.

We're really proud of our culture — built on strong camaraderie, always learning and generously sharing. We partner with some top clients on interesting projects and we have ambitious goals for global world domination through our products.

If you are looking to work somewhere special alongside great people, and be challenged and supported to grow your career, apply for one of our openings today.
