Welcome to Trade Me Labs

This site showcases cool projects that the Trade Me technology team, our industry heroes and a plucky bunch of API consumers have sunk their hard work into.  We encourage innovation internally through our regular FedEx days and through “pet project” time allocated to members of our tech team.  We’ve built up our API to allow the New Zealand Internet community to do inspirational things with our platform that delight our members and we’re proud to show off their work.  Please take some time to browse through the projects, read about what we’re up to and even follow us on the Twitters.  Welcome to Labs!
