Chris Chong Technical Lead

Chris Chong

Technical Lead

As Technical Lead at OpenLoop, Chris developed the applications and systems that are in the OpenLoop ecosystem. That includes working with the product team to identify the user journeys, designing the architecture of the software and computing systems, and leading a team of engineers to implement the features in the system.

I’ve worked here for 2 years, which is almost as long as OpenLoop has been around! What makes this a great place to work is the team and the support that we get from the board and managers. There’s a lot of freedom to design the systems according to best practices, but with all the responsibility of maintaining what we build of course. We emphasise building a DevOps culture here too, where there’s a small but powerful team delivering big things!

I was in London working for a large printing company that could put pretty much anything on a business card or postcard, including gold/silver foils. They put a lot of emphasis on good software practices and empowering their teams, which gave me a lot of experience coming into this role.

Group Head of Software Engineering

Nick has spent the last three years at OpenLoop where he oversees the technology stack and architecture of all products. He’s an advocate for an innovative team environment that’s supportive of every team member. By prioritising his team’s well-being, Nick ensures that the team culture is one of respect, openness and high performance.

There’s a lot of support and trust from the executives which I really appreciate. This means that I’m empowered to make both technical product decisions and team culture decisions that brings out the best of the people I work with.

It helps that there is a high level of trust amongst our team members and that we’re a bunch of hardworking and passionate software engineers. We work with cutting edge technology and implement a DevSecOps culture which is important.

I was the mobile lead for the PartPay app which we delivered in 3 months, this was later rebranded to Zip. Before that I was the Site Reliability Engineering Lead at NZTA, ensuring the various teams were aligned with the DevOps culture and the pillars of excellence.

We’re a small but cohesive team and each person has a voice and is heard – there aren’t any arrogant team members who hijack the conversation, we’re all equals here. And we’re not just all lads either, we have women software engineers and we’re hoping to hire more as we value diversity.

Career paths are supported by the company and we’re all passionate about developing products that positively impact the environment and supports electrification in NZ. There are also flexible options of working from home and in the office.
