- Electrical Engineering or Mechatronics
- Engineering (Software Engineering)
- Civil Engineering and Business/Commerce / Facilities Management
What does a network engineer do at Telstra?
Because Telstra has more than a century’s experience in the industry, our Networks and InfraCo team knows a thing or two about keeping Australia connected. They have the exciting responsibility of looking after the planning, design, access, maintenance and construction of our world-class networks, infrastructure and products supporting fixed, fibre, wireless and media technologies.
Meanwhile our IoT (Internet of Things) Domain Engineering teams design, develop and operate Telstra’s suite of IoT Platforms and Products, which are used by Australia’s biggest companies.
We build and deploy an exciting portfolio of scalable, secure, robust, cloud-native software by leveraging the latest technologies. We also have full end-to-end ownership and accountability for our IoT solutions, from proof of concept through to productionised launch, ongoing operation and continual development.
What could you be doing as a graduate?
You’ll assist in specialist analysis, design, development and deployment in specific network technology domains. In our infrastructure business you will leverage your knowledge and skills working across Australia’s largest and most diverse set of infrastructure assets including pits, ducts, towers, poles and exchanges.
You’ll also get to use next generation technologies to help our customers better connect, explore and interact with each other. Our previous grads have worked on:
- Building several VNFs for virtualised network nodes
- Designing and implementing a solution to perform telemetry to extract data from our routers
- The Federal Government’s Mobile Black Spot Program
- Developing programs to reduce the carbon emissions from our Exchange and Data centre facilities.
- Development and launch of new fibre products
- Assist in the development of strategic geographic data sets used in the planning process
- Automation of fibre capacity management processes to achieve operational efficiencies
- Identify opportunities for minimum viable power and cooling engineering solutions that continue to provide operational value to both our traditional telco network and future virtual and cloud networks
If you join our Domain Engineering teams, you could be working on:
- Smart connected buildings, spaces, and cities
- Industrial IoT including water and energy utilities
- Asset, freight and supply chain location and condition monitoring
- Connectivity (NB-IoT, CAT-M1 and commoditised 4G/5G)
