New Zealand-based intelligent network recording specialist, Endace, is seeking to expand its Research and Development division as it expands its global reach.
Described as "one of New Zealand's Hi Tech Crown Jewels", the company provides network visibility products to a top-tier customer list including government agencies, global service providers and some of the largest banks in the world.
Endace is looking to grow a Centre of Excellence for on-going research and development in in Auckland, New Zealand, and is looking to attract top tier talent to match.
Spun out of the University of Waikato in 2001, Endace started life with just three staff and now has more than 180. The company quickly developed a reputation for manufacting the very best packet capture cards branded as DAG®, and more than 10 years later, still leads the world in this space.
As the market for packet capture grew and 10 gigabit networking became the standard Endace evolved its product line and launched a range of purpose built packet capture systems based on proven DAG technology. The systems, called EndaceProbe™ quickly found favour with banks and intelligence agencies around the world that recognized their unique capabilities. Endace Probes deliver continuous line-rate 10Gbps recording performance and are recognized as being best in class systems for network troubleshooting and security forensics. The EndaceProbe family was first launched in 2007 and is a full traffic recording system built using world leading hardware, firmware and software design. This product is suitable for monitoring network segments from the edge to the core of a network, and supporting every network type and speed. In addition, Endace Systems come with EndaceVision™ which provides visibility to assist with a wide range of common network requirements, such network analysis and forensics, packet forwarding, and more.
Endace are also first in the world to deliver 100% packet capture and nanosecond accurate time stamping up to 100Gbps.
Over the years Endace has received critical funding from the New Zealand Government, enabling it to advance at a faster pace and develop considerable IP at its Auckland and Hamilton development centres. The New Zealand government actively invests in R&D and is committed to leading the science and innovation ecosystem to deliver a step change to New Zealanders prosperity and wellbeing.
Endace's business strategy has yielded strong growth over the past few years:

Its focus on growth means Endace has a range of opportunities for Auckland-based engineering and engineering support positions. "Alongside top-notch technical skills, qualifications and experience, we're looking for motivated people who can truly make things happen," says Endace CEO, Mike Riley "They need to bring new ideas which we're always looking for and be used to challenging the status quo.
