Job Description

  • Get involved with the support of an application that underpins NZ’s economy
  • Solve technical problems for customers
  • Gather and prioritise user requirements


The Application Specialist supports internal and external users of Land Information New Zealand’s (LINZ’s) Landonline system. Landonline is the transaction centre for property professionals and local councils to carry out land dealings efficiently and securely online. This includes the national database of property ownership and the official records of land boundary surveys.


Your key responsibility is to solve difficult technical requests from Landonline users that cannot be resolved directly by our call centre staff. This involves analysing written material and fully understanding what is going on in the system. You must be able to communicate with software developers.


You are likely to have had experience as an external Landonline user (e-dealing); or alternatively relevant experience within LINZ, for example a Property Rights Analyst – Titles.


You will help gather and prioritise user requirements. You will assist with detailed design for system changes, and then work with our IT provider to deliver a solution and do functional testing.


LINZ is looking to upgrade ‘Landonline’ and you will provide expertise to that project too. This includes feeding in what current system business rules are and what a new system could do similarly or better.


Key Selection criteria includes/is:

  • A knowledge of the Torrens system.
  • Previous experience with the processing and lodgement, or processing and registration of dealings in Landonline.
  • Proven analytical skills
  • Enjoys researching and solving complex problems
  • Learns new complex systems and processes quickly
  • Customer focus and easily builds relationships with a wide range of people


At Land Information New Zealand (LINZ), we underpin New Zealand’s success with information about ‘where’ – that is, location information. It’s an incredibly diverse and exciting industry to be part of. From the best way to develop farm land, build a new suburb, manage a high country farm or navigate on land or at sea, our work and information helps people make better decisions and create economic, social, environmental and cultural value for New Zealand.  


LINZ is one of the most engaged organisations in the public sector and people always say what a fantastic place LINZ is to work.


Apply online and submit your CV and cover letter outlining your skills and experience for this role. We are looking for evidence of how you meet each of the key selection criteria.


Applications close 5pm Monday 12 December 2016.
