Your new role

Our team are seeking Information Management specialists, as well as data engineers, analysts and scientists to support our work in the Defence sector. Working in our team you'll mix with some of the brightest minds while working on significant projects – solving real world problems with exciting and interesting data you wouldn’t normally have access to.

Joining our team you’ll be working on a series of projects with Defence:

  • Building trust and creating value from data through the development and implementation of advanced data management frameworks.
  • Solving challenging problems with advanced Data Science and Machine Learning techniques – using tools like R, MATLAB, Python, SAS and SPSS.

  • Information Management: Skills and experience across Data Governance, Master Data Management, Data Quality Management, Data Warehousing and Business Intelligence delivery.
  • Data Scientist: Using Data Science techniques and Machine Learning skills over Big Data
  • Data Engineer: Engineering modern data solutions or pipelines to facilitate advanced analytics, visualisation & interactive data applications
  • Data Analyst: Analysing and business consulting with data – using relational databases (SQL), data workbench & visualisation tools for project delivery, applying business logic and interpreting results
  • Sector knowledge: Knowledge and experience of Defence ideally spanning both the Australian Defence Force, and defence industry.

You’ll demonstrate experience in a consulting environment and/or experience within industry where you have developed your subject matter expertise and led others. You’ll need to bring an ability to work collaboratively within a team environment and to build strong client relationships. We're looking for talented people, team players and progressive thinkers who can communicate their ideas convincingly.

You will:

  • Have a questioning mind and lots of bright ideas.
  • Be a critical thinker with strong analytical and problem solving skills.
  • Be comfortable with manipulating and combining large, high dimensional datasets from multiple sources.
  • Have an ability to interpret findings and identify key insights to communicate to a non-technical audience.
  • Be an Australian Citizen: citizenship is required due to the security clearances required to work with Defence. Ideally, you have an existing clearance.

Preferred technical skills and experience include:

  • Experience with SAP including either SAP ERP (ECC or S/4 HANA), SAP BI Solutions (e.g. SAP BW, BusinessObjects, Lumira) or SAP Data Tools (e.g. SAP EDS, SAP Information Steward).Experience with Engineering Information Systems such as SAP PLM and Siemens Team Centre.
