Offshore IT Contractors
Add a dedicated IT contract software developer to your team today.
Whether you need 1 person or 100, we'll provide the right fit for you and your business.
It’s no secret that there is a shortage of talent in the IT industry here in New Zealand, so it’s not surprising that so many companies are looking offshore for staff. Unfortunately, hiring from overseas brings its own unique challenges.
That’s where we come in.
Over the years we have built a global network of trusted, hardworking IT contractors. These professionals have all passed our strict and rigorous standards to work for our Kiwi clients. By focusing exclusively on the IT industry, we know who is good, who is available, and who would be perfect for your vacant position.
We only work with people who have a strong work ethic, proven tech skills, and a dedication to their job. English-speaking, highly trusted and thoroughly professional, we only suggest people we think are the right fit for your company and the position on offer.

Not only have 40 Foot been doing this a long time, but our offshore contractors all have considerable experience in the industry.
We’re a NZ-owned business and while our contractors may be in Lebanon, you will be dealing with a team leader here in New Zealand, helping you with any issues or requests.
Nervous about hiring from overseas?
We understand hiring from another country can make a Kiwi employer anxious.
Naturally, there are many questions and concerns when recruiting from overseas, but we’re here to simplify everything.
Over the years we have built up a team of professional, honest and hardworking IT specialists, all of whom fall under a New Zealand based technical director who is available 24/7 for support.
Where do we get our IT talent from?
Most tech companies look towards India when it comes to hiring offshore.
We choose not to.
Our talent comes mainly from Lebanon and Cyprus, areas with a similar industrious work ethic to New Zealand, along with excellent English proficiency.
Our IT contractors are the very best in the industry – trustworthy, hardworking and up-to-date with all the latest tech concepts.
