Telstra is looking to hire young people with talent in data analytics, infrastructure design and other advanced areas as it seeks to develop 5G technology, IoT capabilities and optical transport technology.
In a posting on Telstra’s Web site, Paul Stratford, the telco’s global talent director, has outlined some of the most important areas for which it is seeking new hires.
These include data analytics and management; information and cyber security specialists; solution architects able to help digitise Telstra’s “network of the future”; infrastructure designers and engineers; network engineers with a special focus on 5G; product and service designers; and Innovation Lab software engineers.
Says Stratford: “It’s a new year filled with new opportunities … we are trialling 5G technology, developing Internet of Things network capabilities and deploying optical transport technology in our transmission network.
“Sqoop, Spark, Hive, Flume, Oozie, and NumPy may sound like band names … but on a serious note, I know that these are the kinds of tools and skills that our workforce of the future needs to help us be successful for our customers.”
