Senior Software Developer

We are looking for a new team member to join our IT team as a Senior Software Developer.

Going to work shouldn't feel like a chore, at TR Group we thrive because our teammates are driven towards awesome results and an awesome environment. No two days are the same here, and that's not a platitude - We go out of our way to ensure we look after our customers and are always looking to be better than yesterday.

We are the industry leader in all things trucks and trailers - lease, rental, training and used vehicle sales. Most of our team are what we call 'truck-nuts' - and if you're not a truck-nut, you love supporting them.

Since 1992 we have come a long way from a one-man-band to the team of 200 we are today across NZ and Australia.

The role of Senior Software Developer:

The Senior Software Developer is a technical position within the IT team and reports to the Software Development Manager. The role is responsible for the design and development of software solutions at TR Group and its subsidiary companies, including TR Driver Training and TR Group Australia. The role is varied, including new applications, APIs, automation, and refactoring existing code.  You will be working across full stack in a Microsoft-centric environment, primarily C# / .NET Core, but solid experience in VB.NET will be useful.

The team as a whole is growing, and with that we need some serious talent in our IT team to help support the growth of the business, and the future ahead of us. As a developer you will be working closely with the wider IT team to create IT solutions used across TR Group companies. Technical talent is just the start.  We’re looking for people who love to learn, enjoy a challenge, aren’t scared of a bit of hard work, and enjoy working in a team-oriented environment. Culture is an important piece of our puzzle and we work hard to get the right person in the right job, not just any "bum in a seat". Working at TR Group gives you the chance to work on yourself as well as your chosen career; we model growth in everything we do.

We are looking for someone with the following job experience up their sleeve:

  • 10+ years of progressively responsible coding experience in a mid-size, multi-location, enterprise or larger;
  • have strong interest in, and experience with, DevOps, automation and Agile/Scrum project delivery methodology;
  • have experience with cloud (Azure) development and deployment;
  • have extensive experience with:
    • .NET Framework (C# and VB.NET) and .NET Core / .NET 5
    • SQL Server (T-SQL) and developing database-heavy applications, to include writing complex stored procedures
    • DevOps / Git and CI/CD
  • have experience in one of more of the following areas:
    • DevExpress
    • Developing RESTful APIs
    • Service oriented architectures
    • Docker containers
    • React.JS
  • have an interest and ability to learn other coding languages and technologies
  • possess a keen eye and an appreciation and interest for product design, UX and usability;

As well as having the skills for the job, you just can’t beat a good attitude.

We are looking for someone who is proud of their work ethic, is dependable and ready to launch into a new challenge when one has finished. Be a positive influence to those around them, always looking for a win/win where we can. Someone who is self-motivated with the energy and outlook to to be autonomous in their job. You enjoy communicating, even though you mostly have your head in code - communicating with others is the butter to the bread so to speak.

Personal traits are just as important to us, does this sound like a bit of you?

Willingness to listen and learn

Be receptive to what you hear, being present is in the forefront of your mind. You are proactive with learning and feedback and see it only as an opportunity to grow.

Adaptability and flexibility

You are someone who can follow directions one day and figure out your own direction the next.


It's more than just working together it's about collaborating. In our team it's not about who does the job, but that the job gets done. Literally, there is no I in team.


Nothing great comes easy. You don't believe in clock watching, you're more about getting the job done, and know things swing in roundabouts.

But what do you get out of working with TR Group?

We are a team, and we are a family. We look after each other in the good times, and the tough times. Our values speak to who each and every one of us are, and we don't have to have the words on the wall to prove it. TR Group is so much more than a business, we make a lasting imprint on each other and the community we live in. We are dedicated to personal growth of our team, whether that's new ways of thinking, doing or simply getting out of the every day to work on yourself. You can expect to learn and develop both personally and professionally, and we believe that the better person you are at home, is the better person that comes to work. It’s not just a job.
