Rakon is a listed company that has never lost its family feel. From our humble beginnings over 50 years ago, we have grown into a successful, diverse and multi-cultural business spanning four continents. Our greatest success story is our people – some of whom have grown their whole careers with us! Rakon is truly a place where careers thrive in an inclusive environment.
Here are some of the reasons why you should join our team:
Diverse, complex projects
Our teams have the benefit of working across a diverse range of projects because our customers come from a wide range of industries. Our products are at the forefront of technology and have many applications, such as telecommunications cell towers, space satellites and GPS systems. We partner with our customers to help solve their problems and develop exactly what they need – which means every project is exciting and different.

Great people – great opportunities
We believe in being genuine and having a supportive approach to each person within our global team. We are committed to our people and treat them as individuals, recognising achievement and commitment. We pride ourselves on our collaborative environment and the fact that complex ideas are shared and developed across our diverse locations.
Opportunity for further training and development
As a business with a high level of corporate intellectual property, we rely on our in-house and on-job training to deliver exceptional results. Many of our people move between departments, gaining a different perspective and enabling growth both horizontally and vertically. As a Rakon team member, you’ll have a personal development plan that is regularly reviewed and adapted to your and our evolving needs.
As a global employer, we are used to our people moving around. Travel is often a part of our senior roles, especially if you’re based in New Zealand. We’re open to discussing short-term secondments or longer-term placements; just open the conversation.
Flexibility in working hours
As a global company, our business is always ‘open’, regardless of timezones. This means our people are flexible with their hours to ensure they connect with our global customers and teammates. To work out how that looks for you, just start a conversation with your manager. Some companies say it, but we mean it – flexibility is a way of life.
