Details: Help Canberra move and grow through technology!
The technologist is someone who has an active interest and knowledge of modern technology, an understanding of old tech limitations and the foresight to see where technology is heading whilst dealing with the day to day.

To be successful in this role, you will need to think strategically, present Information Technology (IT) road maps, build project briefs, analyse business problems and work across the organisation. You will be a master communicator (verbal, presentations, written, formal and informal), able to understand complex problems very quickly, learn on the fly, juggle multiple priorities, identify opportunities where things can be improved and take the initiative to resolve.

The technologist role works in a team providing services to the Transport Canberra and City Services (TCCS) Directorate. While you do not have any direct reports this is a leadership position of influence, as such the team will be seeking your guidance and direction on a range of different support requests and issues – displaying a calm and resilient approach to problems as they arise. You will also be a trusted advisor to the Customer Engagement Services Branch Executive Branch Manager and the TCCS Chief Information Officer and the Senior Leadership team.

A background in Business Analysis, server, network, application development, architecture fields will give you a leg up in this role, working broadly across all areas gives you both legs up. But note, you will not be directly working on the ‘tools’, rather you will guide and coordinate work for those that do in order to help realise opportunities you have identified through business analysis and architectural methodologies.

So if you have the skills and the passion to help us improve Canberra through technology realisation please apply.
