Job Description

Make data count. Work with a team of data scientists disrupting cross-border crime.

Are you collaborative and comfortable in a start-up environment? Join a team of data scientists delivering analytics capabilities to help protect New Zealand's border.

The Data Integration Specialist supports a major programme of work targeting transnational organised crime from overseas sources to our border, to keep illicit drugs, and the harm they cause in our communities, out of New Zealand. You will form and manage consumable data sets within organisational analytics environments and you'll be part of a small group working specifically on tools to help us measure and evaluate drug market interventions. 

About you:

  • You are a specialist in data integration with experience in data warehousing, business intelligence, ETL processing, visualisation, data manipulation, predictive analytics and analytics solutions.
  • You're a team player keen to collaborate with stakeholders and experts to develop new, data-driven intelligence products.
  • Your problem solving expertise will be essential as we achieve this important work within tight time frames.
  • You are process oriented and detail minded, and can work with, and understand, legislative, security, privacy and ethical requirements.

This is an exciting time to join as we build this specialised capability within Customs and a unique opportunity to help us set up an outstanding data modelling team.


You will need to obtain Confidential national security clearance. To achieve Confidential clearance, you must be a New Zealand citizen or a permanent resident who has resided in New Zealand continuously for the last 5 years. If you are successful, you will be asked to complete a drug screening test.
