About us | Ko wai mātou

At the NZ Transport Agency, it all starts with our people. The organisation's performance and success depends on the people who choose to make this a great place to work and make a difference for Aotearoa. The Transport Agency has a strong future focus, understanding that new technologies and changing customer expectations mean the transport system we know today will not be the one we deliver in ten years time.

The Geospatial team, part of our Corporate Support group, works across the whole organisation providing location-based insights, advice and support to inform the decision-making process. Location, and understanding location, is critical to the decisions we make. Geospatial connects data, tools and processes to present an integrated framework for evidence-based decision making, improving the way we think of and use information in land use, transport planning and delivery.

You will liaise with specialists in the Geospatial Team, IS teams and external geospatial vendors to ensure the platform is administered and managed according to best practice and that it meets the required quality and availability needs of the business.

You'll have a working knowledge of ETL processes, Python, SQL Server and be able to apply this to develop, deliver and manage data through the platform. You will bring your technical knowledge to support a highly performing Geospatial Team. You'll have a strong continuous improvement focus as well as the ability to build and maintain relationships, both across the organisation and with external stakeholders.
