Nick Harley
Marketing Director

Nick is Director of Marketing at Raygun - A Wellington based company selling products that help software teams detect and diagnose issues in their code.

Having spent the last 15 years in and around startup businesses, including several of his own, he is no stranger to the successes and failures that come with building upon an idea from the ground up.

Joining at its infancy, Raygun is now one of New Zealand’s fastest growing tech companies, recently announcing plans to invest $15M and create 70+ new jobs in the Wellington region to support their rapid growth.

Between the company HQ on Courtenay Place and Seattle offices, the company supports thousands of customers over 100 countries, including Coca-Cola, Dominos Pizza, Samsung and Microsoft.

Originally from the UK, Nick now calls the beautiful Kapiti Coast home with his partner and two daughters.
