ARANZ Geo, New Zealand

Who We Are
ARANZ Geo specialises in the interpretation and 3D visualisation of geoscience information using software modelling. It takes a special mix of people to make our cool and innovative software, and we’re immensely proud of how far we have come.

We were founded by a bunch of mathematicians from the University of Canterbury, who developed fast algorithms to convert point clouds into triangular meshes using radial basis functions. And if that’s a bit technical, the first application came in the form of a handheld scanner used to digitise models for “Lord of the Rings”.

It made sense for us to apply these algorithms to geoscience data and so Implicit Modelling was invented, completely changing the way geologists model. Our Leapfrog3D products are a result of our amazing work culture, the warm, fun environment, and the contributions made by our multicultural, global workforce.

We are Pioneering
A logical reason to join our team is to be part of a pioneering technology group, the opportunity to be on the precipice of research, discovery, development and innovation.

We are Engaging
Engagement is not just fundamental for our end-users; it’s the core element of our team here at ARANZ Geo. You can marry your passion for meaningful work and your craving for constant challenge with your day-to-day job.

We are Collaborative
And we’re not just about coming up with creative ideas; we’re all about collaborating to make those ideas work. Not only do you get to do what you love every day, you get to do it with a passionate group, a tight collective, driven by a common purpose. ARANZ Geo values and supports open source software and open scientific research. We hold a core belief that the sum of the whole is far greater than the sum of the parts. And together we are doing extraordinary things.

Culture and working environment

In all areas of our business we pride ourselves on being world class, innovative and dynamic. Our Leapfrog software is used by the largest mining, energy and environmental companies on the planet. We attribute this success quite simply to our most valuable asset… our enthusiastic, dedicated and innovative team of individuals.

Here at ARANZ Geo we have a fun, flexible and supportive working environment and we offer the opportunity for on-going learning, development and personal growth. This is all wrapped up in a culture that supports and encourages a good work/life balance and a philosophy that everyone plays an equally important part in the company’s success.
