About us | Ko wai mātou

At Waka Kotahi, 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 team is transitioning to a modern, responsive, client-centred technology team. The transition to product led, virtual teams co-designing with internal clients transforms the way Technology works with the business. An Agile and DevOps approach also ensures there is a seamless transition from product design to implementation to ongoing support and maintenance.  

We are looking for people who want to help drive this change and are comfortable stepping up to influence the design and development of a new way of working.
