History
Verizon Connect began in part a Canterbury success story. Ralph Mason, a founder of one of the companies that came together as Verizon Connect, hails from Christchurch and set up a research and development centre here 14 years ago.

Much of the original technology was developed in Christchurch and has been instrumental in shaping this billion-dollar industry. As a result, Verizon Connect is considered a technology leader and pioneer in the telematics industry.

Company size
Verizon Connect has offices in 15 countries around the world including Dublin, London, Sydney, Los Angeles, Chicago, Austin with staff numbers over 3,500.

The company has a large research and development centre based in Christchurch.

Research and development
Supporting the development of its SaaS software are a range of development and test automation roles requiring capability in C#, JavaScript, C++, REST, SOA, UX, UI, systems administration and database management.

Roles within the company and company culture
Verizon Connect regularly hires for its Christchurch office with at least 10 graduates each year and five to 10 interns working year-round. Many interns stay on as permanent employees after graduation.

The company is actively looking for software developers and engineers as well as business analysts, support engineers, software test engineers and software development managers.
