Full time

Hi! We’re Telstra Purple ðŸ‘‹

We’re more than just tech and innovation. We’re a collection of passionate people who give purpose to technology. These are the most important aspects of our business – in fact, so important that we’ve used them to literally inspire our name. We’re a technology services organisation focused on transforming businesses, from the network to digital experience and we do it all with a purpose in mind.

We recognise that life experiences are varied and complex. We benefit from each person’s unique gifts, and push for diversity and inclusivity in all we do. Our people make us a stronger and more purposeful business, where we come to celebrate our shared love of technology.

Everything we do is founded on our core beliefs:

  • We thrive when our people thrive
  • Our customer’s success is our success.
  • We are trusted and empowered as individuals
  • We are stronger together
  • We continuously learn, share and innovate

About the role

Consultants at Telstra Purple are known for discovering the latest and greatest in technologies, mastering their nuances, and influencing our clients and our community with their potential. As a Consultant, you will help to deliver innovative solutions for our clients, improving existing coding practices and educating teams in all aspects of software delivery. We encourage you to use a multitude of approaches to make impactful contributions to our clients, including pair programming, workshops/training, and one-on-one mentoring. You’ll grow into a subject matter expert at an accelerated pace, and be part of a community where continuous learning and improvement isn’t just enabled, but expected.

None of our roles are “just developer” roles – they’re all client-facing. Our consultants aren’t just productive team members – they are influencers, coaches, mentors, teachers and business partners. Great people skills are key. You will be able to apply your passion for technology and problem solving, using the latest, cutting edge technologies whilst working alongside and learning from talented, knowledgeable and experienced software development consultants..

We’re currently looking for talented consultants against each level of our career framework. Reach out if you want to more details but hopefully this rundown on our roles [link removed] gives an idea of what we look for.
