A mate of mine has a client:

... who's desperately looking for really good software development people (permanent not contract) to work on C++/Networking/Unix stuff. They're after a range of people from senior architects and a development manager through to hard-core coders. They're paying really top rates, and the company is going "stellar" at present - globally. The location is either Auckland or Hamilton depending on the candidates' preferences.

If you are such a person or know someone who might be interested, contact me via email: juhasaarinen at gmail dot com and I'll forward the contact details.
