Wellington, New Zealand is trending as the World’s Coolest Little Capital, and its success is not simply due to a brilliant PR campaign.

Why Wellington for IT professionals?
Wellington has everything you need in a city: a great nightlife, an established and delicious dining scene, solid culture and art presence swagger with beautiful street art, and access to some of the most beautiful scenery you’ve ever seen in this part of the world. If you love the city and the outdoors, Wellington combines the two in New Zealand! In Wellington you’re surrounded by exquisite nature such as the Rimutakas, Kapiti Coast and Martinborough that are only an hour away in all directions!
In addition to these outside-the-city getaways, Wellington itself has wonderful nature walks for you to explore just minutes from your doorway like the winding trails on Mt. Victoria to the fern-lush bush walks at Otari Wilton. If you’re less into forests and more into the ‘concrete jungle’, just head into the city centre where you’ll find some of the best microbreweries and coffee roasters in Australasia! Get your arts and culture fix in Cuba St or spend serious dosh in the upmarket boutiques of Lambton Quay. Whatever it is you’re looking for, Wellington’s got it. And if you know IT like the back of your hand, then Wellington wants you!
