  • Apply your talent where it counts
  • On-going career development and the opportunity to work on a significant and complex Defence project
  • Enjoy flexibility and interesting work within our strong team culture

Apply your talent where it counts as an Information Communications Technology (ICT) Engineer in our team. This rewarding permanent and full time position can be situated in either our Canberra CBD office or our North Ryde, New South Wales office.

Despite COVID-19, we have a strong pipeline of job opportunities and we are still hiring. We're continuing to provide the Australian Defence Force with what they need to help protect the nation. Many of our people are now safely working from home. Of course some roles can't be done from home and in those cases, we're operating with an increased focus on health and safety on-site. We're finding new ways of working in response to COVID-19 and our workforce is still delivering the best capability for Australia.

About the Opportunity
An opportunity has arisen for a self-driven ICT Engineer to demonstrate their technical expertise and make a valuable contribution on our satellite communication systems projects. This fulfilling position will report to the Project Engineering Manager and will be offered on a permanent and full time basis.

This opportunity will see you:

  • Provide ICT Engineering support and develop new ICT equipment and networks
  • Configure routers, switches, firewalls, build servers, setup virtualisation environments and manage ICT security issues
  • Identify, acquire and integrate software solutions into the hardware solution
  • Produce ICT engineering change proposals
  • Develop ICT engineering design documentation and drawings to detail designs
  • Create test and installation plans and procedures and create technical manuals of the solution
  • Provide other engineering support including safety engineering, equipment installation, integration and formal testing, and obsolescence management

As these systems are located aboard Navy ships and at various ground stations around Australia, some ad-hoc travel will be required.

About you
As an ideal applicant for this opportunity, you'll have:

  • Extensive ICT engineering or network engineering experience
  • Relevant university degree
  • Knowledge and experience with Unix based systems, MS Windows based systems, and network devices
  • Strong communication and interpersonal skills along with the ability to write reports

Whilst not essential, ICT/Network engineering experience within the Defence industry or experience working within a formal technical regulatory framework will be highly regarded.

Don't meet every criteria listed above? Don't worry. Providing you have the right foundational experience and qualifications, we encourage you to apply. Whether it be for this role or another, your skills and competencies are of interest to us.
