We are dedicated to the powerful ideas that make the world a better place for our clients, their users, and our community.
Propellerhead was founded in 2002 by Andrew Weston, and we specialise in enterprise-size software development. Our clients include Auckland Museum, Skinny, NZ Post, Spark Wholesale, Auckland Transport, and Ministry of Education.
We act as technology partners to our clients, and take great pride in designing, developing and deploying software. We also believe continuous advances in technology allow us to utilise newer and better ways of solving problems for our clients and their users.
We question the status quo, and understand the need for constant evolution in the relentless pursuit of excellence. This drives our mission at Propellerhead.
We have supported numerous New Zealand STEM and IT related initiatives, including Shadow Tech Day and Shadow IT (events allowing female high-school students to 'shadow' a female IT professional for a day in the workplace), MIT Code Camp (a boot camp teaching high-school students coding and computer game development), and JHack (an event bringing together over 100 students from over 20 high schools to complete in a series of programming challenges).
In 2014 Propellerhead, together with Auckland Transport and AUT, ran HackAKL, an initiative which invited the public to come up with new ideas around solving Auckland's transport problems. Participants were able to access Auckland Transport's data, and compete for prizes.
Most recently, we donated 27 computers and 27 monitors to the charity OMGTech!, to help with their mission of teaching young New Zealanders how to build the future.
