As someone who studied a Masters in Machine Learning at Monash University, being part of the Telstra Graduate Program has given me an insight into what I need to do to be a successful programmer.
Some of the agile practices and methodologies translate into everyday life. I have found the benefits of Agile don’t just translate to the office, they can extend to your personal life and can help improve your mindset and approach to life.
Science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) skills are incredibly valuable in enabling us to solve complex problems. These skills form the basis of many of the tech roles Telstra has today.
For the last five years Tara's led Telstra’s Open Source Intelligent (OSINT) unit, a specialist team that uses digital technologies and scours openly available sources of information, to find intelligence that helps protect our people and assets from malicious cyber threats and help us better understand threats to Telstra or our customers.
Since finishing the Graduate Program a year ago, I’ve moved into a full-time role at Telstra Labs as an AI and Machine Learning expert.
