We've come a long way in over 65 years of operation in Australia.  On top of a strong underlying business, having been selected to deliver the next generation of advanced anti-submarine warships, the JORN Phase 6 radar upgrade and sustainment program and as a tier 1 F-35 Joint Strike Fighter program partner, the future is bright for our more than 4,000 employees.  

Despite COVID-19, we have a strong pipeline of job opportunities and we are still hiring. We're continuing to provide the Australian Defence Force with what they need to help protect the nation. Many of our people are now safely working from home. Of course some roles can't be done from home and in those cases, we're operating with an increased focus on health and safety on-site. We're finding new ways of working in response to COVID-19 and our workforce is still delivering the best capability for Australia.  

In terms of our culture, it's safety focused and inclusive.  For us that means ensuring that the voices and talents of every employee are valued and that everyone has a sense of belonging. It also means providing a safe, family friendly, flexible and supportive place to work. 


About the project 

The Jindalee Operational Radar Network (JORN) has been a part of the Australian Defence landscape for many decades and comprises three Over-The-Horizon-Radar (OTHR) systems to provide surveillance coverage of our northern border. BAE Systems has been awarded the contract to manage the upgrade of this 100 percent Australian solution that is strategically important to Australia's security. 

Joining to build this complex state-of-the-art Australian capability, you will be part of an exciting and unique opportunity to grow with some of Australia's finest Defence professionals in an iconic Defence environment.  


About the Opportunity 

An internal promotion and increase in demand has led to multiple new opportunities for up and coming Windows Systems Engineers to support one of our key strategic programs, JORN at our Edinburgh Parks office in Adelaide. 

Working directly at the client site, you will gain experience working across both the Acquisition and Sustainment parts of the program. 

In more specific terms, you will: 

  • Act with authority and competence to make strategic and operational decisions on the ICT support and sustainment of existing and new environments being delivered
  • Provide technical solutions to complex and time-critical projects and mission systems
  • Work with system architects to contribute to the design, development and implementation of new services and applications
  • Ensure that the virtualisation infrastructure that supports the Windows platform systems meet the current performance, reliability and security requirements
  • Deliver and support optimisation of Windows based services and associated data storage sub systems effectively and efficiently
  • Assist in the recommendation and selection of appropriate management tools for Server Computing platforms, data storage sub systems and Enterprise Messaging systems.
  • Develop and deploy approved Engineering changes and system updates
  • Assist in installing new/rebuilding existing servers and configure hardware, peripherals, services, settings, directories, storage in accordance with standards and operational requirements
  • Assist in upgrades and patches of operating systems by conferring with vendors and services; developing, testing, evaluating, and installing enhancements and new systems
  • Undertake Incident and Service Request resolution in line with service level expectations and communicate with vendors to resolve technical issues


About you

  • Prior experience in a technical role with a demonstrated ability to manage and support the relevant computing systems like Microsoft Windows Server (2012 -  2019), Microsoft SCCM, Microsoft Exchange (2013 - 2019), Active Directory, VMWare, Backups, Printing and File systems.

  • Good communication skills, able to interact effectively with customers and team members
  • Ability to think outside of box with proven critical thinking and problem solving skills
