Job Description

What we need

We are ideally seeking someone who has significant experience in many different technologies, you don't need to be a specialist in anything specific however an understanding of networks CCNA/CCNP or the likes would be a big advantage as you will be able to apply that knowledge to integrate systems and create new capabilities. This isn't an off the shelf role, we need an outside smart thinker who isn't afraid to try, fail and learn fast.
Some of the technical skills that we are seeking in regards to systems engineering are:

  • RF systems - RF coverage planning and analysis, optimisation of radio access, interference, coexistence analysis and RF performance optimisation.
  • Network systems – IP fundamentals.
  • Computer Systems – Windows/Linux/Android/UNIX.
  • Electronics or Electrical fundamentals.

You will also have experience with troubleshooting, error logs, system logs, patching, upgrading firmware and be familiar with the Kanban method of working/delivery. Experience with purpose built appliances is an advantage (Encoders, SIEMs, and App Firewalls).

There is lots of stakeholder engagement in this role so you will need to be a confident communicator with good interpersonal skills, more than happy to share your knowledge while learning from others. You have the ability to deliver technical design to a non-technical audience, if you have trained users or support teams that would be of benefit.

Who we are
The purpose of the NZSAS Regiment is to respond to strategic tasks or threats, for which either the task or the environment precludes the use of conventional operations. Tasks are focused, often discreet operations of an unorthodox and frequently high risk nature, undertaken to achieve significant political or military objectives beyond the capability of other forces.
Every hour of every day, 365 days of the year, the New Zealand Defence Force is contributing to the defence, security and well-being of Aotearoa / New Zealand.  As a modern, professional military, it is our goal to maintain well trained, equipped and disciplined armed forces that can react to crisis at short notice. 
Why Us
By joining our team you are making a great career decision.  A recent staff satisfaction survey highlighted why:

  • Be part of an effective team with freedom and flexibility to do my job
  • Able to maintain a balance between my personal and working life
  • Inspired to go the extra mile to help NZDF succeed.
