Nearly 30 years ago, we entered the market as a challenger brand, but today we're redefining what Australians can expect from a telco. Our vision is to be Australia's most loved everyday brand with lasting customer relationships.

We are constantly innovating and so there are many opportunities across our business for amazing individuals early in their career who are looking to be at the forefront of connecting Australia.

You can loosen the tie at Optus, as we're innovating not conforming.

Our Technology & Data Systems teams at Optus are responsible for driving technology change and developing innovation in enterprises, facilitating the delivery of unique and streamlined services for our customers. Our Tech teams do it all; from design and managing our corporate systems, cloud storage and Network Security to working with external clients and everything in between. Our Data Analytics team members are leaders in processing and analysing raw data in order to make informed conclusions to deliver intelligence on businesses, people and places using the highest data privacy standards. Understanding how people move, where they go and what they do enables us to assist organisations to map their strategy around where people live, work and play.
