The New Zealand IT industry is one of the most exciting in the world. Whilst we have our fair share of enterprise organisations, we also boast a broad range of technology start-ups.

As an IT professional it can be challenging to clearly understand the range of different opportunities that exist. So Under the Hood is doing this for you, regularly taking time out to meet and profile the people that make our industry tick.

Welcome to the latest edition of our ‘Under the Hood’ blog series, where we meet the amazing people who make New Zealand’s IT industry tick.

Today, we’re joined by Hans Frauenlob, who is the Head of Operations & Marketing at Belong, an employee benefits and rewards platform. Watch the video below to discover more about why Hans feels variety is essential to a fulfilling career, his current role and the changes the IT sector is experiencing.

A Changing Sector

Hans talks about how technology has been democratised and whilst this is great progress it also throws up many new challenges. He also provides insights on how this means that those operating in the marketing sector also need to change, in particular, how important it is to have a degree of technical ability in order to be successful.

As a hiring manager, Hans provides input on what job seekers can do to stand out during an interview. Of particular note is how important he believes it is to show an active interest in the business, rather than just the role itself.
