Modified January 20, 2024



Adaptiv is the leader in data and integration consulting and development in NZ, delivering innovative solutions to meet our clients’ needs through cloud-based services.

We employ the best of the best in the industry which makes it easy to support our staff in gaining the skills necessary to become data and integration experts.

No two days are the same, and while we provide complex solutions for some impressive clients, we know when to switch off and have fun. With no office politics, an excellent company culture and a modern rooftop office (BBQ anyone?), this kind of opportunity does not come around often.

The Azure Data Engineer position is a critical role as it provides data consulting across the Company’s partner businesses (clients). The position is responsible for assisting with the design, implementation, review, and updates of the Company’s IT solutions for clients.

This is a varied position with exposure to data technologies both on-premises and on Azure.

This position will be required to work on multiple projects at any one time and balance workload accordingly. The role is required to use tools and techniques related to cloud development in a dynamic, constantly changing environment.

This position is highly responsive to the requests of clients with work priorities largely influenced by these stakeholders.
