Graduate Software Engineers/ Developers

Job description

  • Location: Christchurch
  • Excellent opportunity to grow your career
  • Work in a fun team oriented global organisation

Our Company

ARANZ Geo is a rapidly growing international software company who specialises in the interpretation and visualisation of geoscience information. As the global provider of the market-leading Leapfrog software suite, we are continually pushing the envelope and innovating in our target markets. Our company was born in NZ and we now have employees in 15 countries across 4 continents.

We are looking for Graduate Software Engineers who want to kick start their careers with a technically challenging role building scientific software for desktop, enterprise and cloud platforms.

You will have:

  • A desire to build software that people love.
  • An aspiration to grown your career as part of an awesome team building-cutting edge products.
  • A hunger to learn, coupled with the humility to take instruction.
  • The ability to communicate effectively with all sorts of people.
  • Great programming skills in several languages/platforms.

We build our products using a huge range of open-source languages, components and tools.  This includes: Python, C, C++, OpenGL, WebGL, GTK, QT, NumPy, MatplotlLib, Twisted, SQLite, PostgreSQL and many more.


How many geologists does it take to change a light bulb?  We are not sure of the answer either, but we do know that it takes a special mix of individuals across a range of specialties to make cool and innovative software.

So what exactly makes our people so special? Well we think we have got the secret recipe ….

Take a scoop of passion, a dose of technical talent, a truck load of enthusiasm to tackle gnarly problems, mixed with a huge amount of collaboration and banter.

Throw in several shots of real coffee, a range of outside interests including surfing, rock licking, mountain biking and running, and maybe a Star Wars movie or two.  Let it rest and enjoy the talent.

Then bake for a while in an inviting environment that is supportive, multi-cultural and challenging.

Finally, season with some BBQ lunches, craft beer and fresh fruit.

Serving our clients, a hot and fresh product that is world class and hits the sweet spot!

If this is the role for you, send us your CV and motivating cover letter.
