Who is Datacom?

We’re the largest New Zealand owned Information Technology company. If it’s IT, we do it. Our 48 year evolution means we’re built to be stable, prosperous and growing. Our size allows us to provide staff with many of the benefits multi-nationals might offer, but our business model means you still feel part of a small family business on a day-to-day basis. We care about our people. And we need more talented young people to help us continue our stellar achievements.

Since our humble beginnings in Christchurch back in 1965, Datacom has grown organically to be more than 3,650 staff across New Zealand, Australia and Asia. We have 2,200 in NZ alone and we continue to grow.


We’ve helped our customers succeed by building solutions such as

  • Air New Zealand Internet booking website
  • ASB Bank online (fastnet classic) and mobile presence
  • Ministry of Justice – Case Management System
  • All-of-government igovt Services platform
  • Citizen’s Advice Bureaux Internet and Intranet portals

Along the way, we’ve won some awards, including

  • Hi-Tech Company of the Year 2010
  • Best IT Services Firm in Australia 2009 and 2010
  • Finalist Company of the Decade 2011
  • Microsoft APAC Platinum Club Asia Pacific Regional winner for Year 2012
  • VMWare Partner Network Award – 2013 Asia Pacific Winner

We have won many more awards for the solutions we have built and we’re very proud of those achievements and of our people who have deservingly won them.


Our difference?

What’s quite unusual (for an IT business our size) is that we’re privately owned, and our business model sets us apart from other IT shops.  Our people are vital to us, our structure is very flat, and our staff (right to the very top) are approachable and willing to share their wealth of knowledge.

The career opportunities are wide-ranging and your success is only limited by your abilities and motivation.  You’re treated as a professional and given the freedom to unlock your own potential – though at the same time support is there when you need it. You are introduced to the commercial IT world in a planned ‘quick-start’ manner that sees you being productive very quickly.
