Our Origins

Provoke was established in Wellington, New Zealand in 2001 by the current CEO, COO and CIO – Mase, Brendon and Doug. The dream was simple; create a company that places as much emphasis on user experience as it does on technical brilliance to drive value for customers. Provoke is now a company of over 140 employees across three offices in Auckland, Wellington and Seattle while keeping true to the original mission.
