2020/21 CommBank Technology (ES) Summer Intern Program - Systems Engineering


As a team we have strong appetite for technically minded students to join our best in breed Systems Engineering teams. To be successful you’ll thrive in a challenging environment, and are curious and tenacious when it comes to solving problems.

An interest in Linux and modern software defined infrastructure practices will serve you well here. Your internship will provide exposure to a number of OpenStack tools. You will also have opportunity to learn from the best and refine some existing skill level in one or more of the following: Haskell, Scala, Python, Shell, Java, Bash, Perl, Clojure, Docker, Kafke, Spark and Hadoop.

We do more than software development. Engineering is a mindset where we take responsibility for continuous improvement, delivery of product outcomes, and awareness of the cost implications of our decisions. We look for people to speak up when things aren’t right, fix what’s broken, but most of all to exemplify a determination to innovate and create.

We view Systems Engineering as being distinct from Systems Administration; our people have deep knowledge of Linux internals, are well versed in modern software defined infrastructure practices and the challenges of complex distributed systems, and are something of the artiste when troubleshooting & problem solving. Our people believe they can change the system, not just make it run.


We are looking for people to be part of high performing engineering teams in one of the largest and most forward thinking technology houses in Australia. You’ll have the opportunity to do real work that will allow you to put your passion and transferrable skills you’ve gained from your studies into practice and develop your technical knowledge, whilst contributing to outcomes which positively impact our business and customers.


The program commences on the 23 November 2020, where you’ll join as a full-time employee over the summer. Here you’ll get a taste of what it’s like working at CommBank through formal learning events and workplace-based experiential learning, to help you decide if we’re the right fit for you.

The program centres around 4 key elements:

Shine: Contribute from day one by working on real projects that impact our business and our customers, within Australia’s largest bank.

Develop: Participate in market-leading training to develop your technical and soft skills. This will help with the transition to full-time work from university over the summer, and ensure you excel in your immediate and future roles.
