Join the Team: Helping tuners from all over the world

HPA is growing and it’s time to expand the team so we can make more content, courses and develop new and exciting areas of the business. This is an opportunity for you to join the team as a....actually the title will really depend on what you are good at. As you will see below there are lots of jobs that need doing at HPA. 

This position is based in Queenstown New Zealand (You can read more about Queenstown here - It's one of the most beautiful towns in the world). The location would suit someone with an interest in the outdoors or an active lifestyle. 

At HPA we work hard but try and do so in a relaxed and fun way - If we just got a 50 cm dump of fresh powder overnight, chances are slim that you'll find us in the workshop the next morning. We also regularly head to the race track to test products and collect data. You would have to fit in with this lifestyle and be flexible in your work.
