You will be able to interpret working standards and apply them to complex problems. We are looking for systems thinkers who can see the bigger picture and solve the problems that come with it.


As a Systems Engineer, you could be working under the direction of Principal Engineers or you could be working as part of a wider IT project team with an expectation that you will deliver outstanding solutions and outcomes to a variety of critical projects.  You will be a quick thinker, able to take on a deliverable and run with it autonomously.  This could involve technical configuration or basic project administration.  We need to find someone who is flexible and prepared to do whatever it takes to reach the common goal.


You will be expected to be proactive in the development of systems engineering products, tools and techniques as well as conducting reviews of technical documentation and providing design input to external technology partners. You will also conduct trial and deployment of field-based devices.

Requirements for the role:-


  • Tertiary education in Computer Science

  • Requirements capture, analysis and management
  • Verification and validation
  • Interface identification, control and management
  • Experience in client facing roles


This is initially a 12-month contract position with the programme expected to run for several years.  Therefore there is a long term opportunity there, despite the initial contract nature of the role.
