I’m proud to say that I’m working for an organisation that is at the forefront of innovative technologies, and all of this leading technology was on show at Telstra Vantage 2019.
Working for the right employer is one the biggest components of career progression, so choosing to join Telstra was a no-brainer. I knew working here would give me the chance to be at the heart of innovation, ensuring safety, security and adoption of new technologies at scale, to drive efficiency and performance.
The thing that gets me really excited about engineering and technology, and why I love doing what I'm doing, is that it is so versatile and full of real-life applications. It’s about the impact that you are having through the technology solution being developed, as opposed to just playing around with some cool tech.
