Why is AROA a great place to start your career?

Here at Aroa Biosurgery we’re unlocking regenerative healing for everybody. Maori for ‘understanding’, AROA is at the forefront of understanding how biology, structural form and human factors can unlock the body’s intrinsic power to heal. This means we’re making and creating innovative regenerative healing products that are improving the lives of millions of people around the world.  We specialise in developing, manufacturing and exporting new and exciting soft tissue regeneration products utilising our successful Endoform extracellular matrix (ECM) biomaterial.


We have been on quite a journey here at Aroa over the past 12 years and we continue to go from strength to strength. We have really ambitious goals and we know that it’s our people & the culture of the business that sets us apart from the rest.  As a medium sized ASX listed business we operate in that lovely space where every person makes an impact on the future of the business.  We’re a roll your sleeves up business that loves operating with agility, pace and that entrepreneurial spirit that kiwis are known for.


Internship Opportunity

This unique internship opportunity offers talented students the chance to learn about product development in the medical device industry.  The internship is expected to run over the Summer months from November 2022 through to February 2023 and will see you working alongside a great team of people on a wide range of projects and challenges. 

With positions available in the engineering fields of Mechanical, Mechatronics, Electrical, Biomedical and Computer Science, interns will be working together in our global head office in Auckland and have the opportunity to apply their technical knowledge and skills everyday on projects in the medical device industry. 

Not only will these interns be working on ground-breaking innovative product development projects, they can also expect to complete the summer with greater communication, time management, collaboration and problem-solving skills to add to their CV. 


What to include in your application?

We’re looking for highly talented Engineering students who want to work for a mission-led organisation making a real difference.  Please include the following in your application: 

  • A really great cover letter outlining your career ambition and how this internship will help you achieve this.
  • An academic transcript to show that you're studying, or have recently completed, an undergraduate or postgraduate degree or qualification at NZQA level 7-10. 
  • An up-to-date CV that demonstrates any previous work experience/internships that you’ve undertaken.  Be sure to outline your technical experience and skills (what systems have you used before) and also share any extra-curricular activities and hobbies you participate in.


If successful you’ll be working for a highly progressive and innovative organisation that values diversity (over 25 ethnicities and backgrounds) and inclusion (everyone is their true self at work).  We are fast paced and are trailblazing the way in regenerative healing technology. 


Applications close Friday 19 August 2022. Interviews for our internships will take place late August or early September in person or on zoom.  Any questions can be sent to the People & Culture team on hr@aroabio.com
