Position Vacant - Experienced Hydrographic Surveyor

Position Vacant - Experienced Hydrographic Surveyor

We’re a Mount Maunganui based Hydrographic Survey company employing a diverse group of people ranging from industry leaders to recent graduates. Our team deliver hydrographic surveying services throughout New Zealand, Australia and the greater Pacific Region using a wide range equipment and software. Our clients typically include Governments, Science Organisations, Engineering Companies, Regional and Local Councils and Port Authorities.

We are looking to expand our team and are seeking a qualified hydrographic surveyor to help grow our business. By joining us at DML you will get to:

  • Work with some of Australasia’s most experienced Hydrographic Surveyors
  • Have the opportunity to live in the Bay of Plenty
  • Be involved in challenging and diverse projects
  • Travel domestically & internationally for projects
  • Contribute to a business doing cool things with technology. Check out our website for some examples of the type of work we do. 

Ideally, we are looking for someone that is certified or can achieve CPHS Level 1 or 2 quickly, with experience in delivering shallow to medium water hydrographic survey projects. No two projects are ever the same, so you’ll need to enjoy technical challenges and be adept at organising and managing your time. Being resilient and calm in the face of pressure is a must, as is being a team player.

You will need a current clean New Zealand Drivers license and some experience towing and backing boats is desirable (but not essential). You must be a New Zealand resident or hold a current work permit to work in Australia and New Zealand.

In return, we offer a competitive remuneration package and the opportunity to be part of an internationally recognised, innovative hydrographic survey company. We are always looking for ways to improve so you will be encouraged to share your knowledge and your input will be valued. You will get to work on interesting projects alongside a friendly team, in a progressive environment where you can make a real difference.

To apply, please email with your CV and cover letter including some details about yourself and why you think you would be a good fit for DML. We look forward to hearing from you!
