Linux System Administrator

Technology Directorate delivers technology for Government Communications Security Bureau (GCSB), the New Zealand Security Intelligence Service (NZSIS), and the wider intelligence and security sector.

Are you passionate about Linux, data and IT in general, and want to develop that enthusiasm in a new and exciting environment?  Do you feel like you could be advancing your skills? Do you want the opportunity to expand into other technology areas? Are you interested in being part of an organisation that is committed to the security and well-being of New Zealand?

If the answer to these questions is yes, you need to seriously consider working for us at our Marlborough facility in the Waihopai Valley (Yes! The domes!). Working here is about making a positive lifestyle choice and carrying out satisfying work. Whether you want to enjoy the great outdoors, raise a family or take advantage of the high sunshine hours at the centre of New Zealand’s wine industry, Marlborough should be the choice for you and your future.

We know that there are sometimes things that can make jobs difficult. It could be a long commute, a focus on profit rather than doing things properly or being tied to your cell phone for tech support. Here’s an opportunity to enjoy a short trip to work through picturesque vineyards where you’ll help make a real difference to New Zealand’s security with like-minded people and you won’t be asked to take your work home. Sound good? Read on…

What you'll bring to the position:

  • A passion for Linux and IT including system admin skills
  • Hopefully some formal raining like a tertiary qualification, but we’re interested in relevant work experience or even a long term obsession
  • Enthusiasm for solving complex IT problems
  • Enjoyment working in a supportive team environment

We're a little bit different - as you can see our position description calls a person with this expertise a 'Cryptologic Engineer'.  Don’t let the word ‘Cryptologic’ spook you (see what we did there) - it’s not code breaking but you can expect to do some unique things with your computing / networking / problem solving skills.

What you get from us:

  • Unique and extremely interesting work that you won’t get to do anywhere else
  • Career and development opportunities
  • Open source culture and community
  • Competitive salary appropriate to qualifications and experience
  • Private medical insurance and vision care benefits
  • We have cookies (actually scones, but you get the idea)

These are some of the skills that the successful applicant will have (not all of them, but we’re always hopeful):

  • Linux system administration (CentOS, Ubuntu, RHEL)
  • Scripting and programming
  • Databases (MySQL, Postgres, MariaDB)
  • Foreman, Ansible or similar automation and configuration tools
  • Complex multi-server processing systems (design, deploy, support)
  • Virtualisation (vSphere, libvirt and other hypervisor technologies)
  • Cloud and web technologies (just defining 'Cloud' would be enough)
  • Storage area networks and networking across a variety of vendors
  • Data centre support experience including racking, stacking and monitoring
  • Practical electrical and electronics experience
  • Interoperability (even if you have to DIY from time to time)

Did you read anything about supporting Windows based systems above? No you didn't. That’s a great skill, but the person that gets this job will probably use Linux at home. There’s a really good chance that they have a small (or large) collection of Linux based systems and a complex network topology operating in their garage. If this describes you, then think of this job as an opportunity to join a like-minded support group.

You will join a technology centric team who collectively do amazing things with some serious computing, but you should also be comfortable solving complex problems on your own. You know that git and subversion can mean more than one thing, PKI could be part of a KPI and you are quite happy to roll up your sleeves and bust out your strace skills when the going gets tough.

We're a little bit different. The work is always challenging and it's important for the security of New Zealand.

Electrical / Infrastructure Technician

  • Based in Marlborough
  • Passion for learning
  • Amazing work in the engineering space

Technology Directorate delivers technology for the Government Communications Security Bureau (GCSB), the New Zealand Security Intelligence Service (NZSIS), and the wider intelligence and security sector.

Are you enthusiastic about working with electrical systems, technology and infrastructure support? Do you want to take that energy into a unique and exciting environment?  Do you feel like you could be making better use of your experience? Do you want the opportunity to expand your skills into other areas? Are you interested in being part of an organisation that is committed to the security and well-being of New Zealand?

If the answer to these questions is yes, come work for us at our Marlborough facility. If you’re struggling to buy a house in one of New Zealand’s larger cities you should check out the average house prices in Blenheim (you’ll have time while you’re stuck in traffic).  While you’re there, check out the weather forecast. You’ll be looking at a regular contender for New Zealand’s sunniest town.  It’s no coincidence that we’re the centre of New Zealand’s wine industry.

What you'll bring to the position:

  • Relevant (and current) work experience as a registered and licenced Electrician
  • Enthusiasm for solving unique problems with an emphasis on service reliability and preventative maintenance
  • A strong appreciation for systems thinking
  • Good customer service and communications skills
  • A passion for learning about new things
  • Familiarity with BMS, HVAC, UPS and generator systems
  • The ability to develop and in turn share knowledge with others
  • Enjoyment working in a team environment, but the ability to work unsupervised

What you get from us:

  • Unique and extremely interesting work that you don’t get to do anywhere else
  • Career progression and training opportunities
  • Close knit, family friendly culture and community
  • Competitive salary appropriate to qualifications and experience
  • 20 days’ annual leave plus 5 additional leave days
  • Private medical insurance and vision care benefits
  • You'll never have to take your work home with you, the hours can be flexible and you won’t be interrupted by a mobile phone at work

These are some of the skills that the successful applicant will have (not all of them, but hey, we can dream right?):

  • Familiarity with heavy electrical systems including generators and UPSs
  • Updating and production of system documentation, informal reports and briefings
  • Current in best practices for health and safety including working at heights
  • Chiller and coolant reticulation
  • Checking, installation and maintenance of a wide range of industrial electrical equipment
  • Experience working with security and access control systems
  • Robust understanding of reliability and redundancy as it applies to high availability systems
  • Data centre systems familiarity

Do the skills above sound varied? They are.  We will be expecting you to learn a whole lot more.  It’s more important that you bring the right attitude and a desire to improve your skill set in a unique and dynamic environment.

You will join a technology centric team who collectively do amazing things in the engineering space, but you should be comfortable solving complex problems on your own. You’ll know that the effort to provide reliable services is directly proportional to how relaxed you feel in the evening and you’ll be happy taking the lead on power factor correction (see what we did there?).

We're a little bit different. The work is always challenging and it's important for the security of New Zealand.
