If you are looking for a challenging career that makes a difference, perhaps a role in the Department of Defence working on Australia’s most complex Defence naval capabilities is the opportunity you’ve been waiting for? 

The Australian Government is laying the foundations for a nationwide naval shipbuilding enterprise to support the implementation of the Naval Shipbuilding Plan. The Plan outlines the Australian Government’s vision for the Australian Naval Shipbuilding Enterprise and the significant investment required in coming decades. Modernisation of our naval forces is a complex, national endeavour aimed at building and sustaining Australia’s naval capabilities. It will create economic growth through Australian industry involvement and in securing Australian jobs for future generations through a continuous naval shipbuilding industry. 

The Department of Defence will play a critical role in establishing the naval ship building enterprise over the next two decades, and that is why we are calling for applications from talented, motivated and skilled people to drive this critical Government agenda. 

Future Submarine Program (FSP), Australia’s largest Defence program, has taken on the challenge to deliver to the Royal Australian Navy a regionally superior, sovereign submarine capability. Submarines are a unique Defence capability and play an essential role in supporting Australia’s maritime security, and your work within the program, by engaging with Navy and Industry suppliers, will ensure that Navy has an enduring and potent submarine capability for generations to come. 

By taking up this challenge and joining the team, you will be at the forefront of shaping a major Defence Capability that is essential to the future operations of Navy. 

What we are looking for: 

As the Mission System Software Lead, you will perform an important role in the assurance of the Attack Class submarine products delivered by the submarine design partners: Lockheed Martin Australia and Naval Group. This role will encompass the development of a document analysis tool that expected to employ Artificial Intelligence to extract knowledge from contractor artefacts. 

The successful candidate will be required to perform the following duties: 

  • Delegation and management of short-term tasks relevant to software engineering domain specific interests;
  • Engagement with contractors via the review of combat and platform system software components, relevant software components of the support system, the various facilities developed by the Combat System Integrator and Platform System Integrator, and support of the mandated system reviews and attend the monthly combat system and platform system software status meetings;
  • Contribute to the software relevant review of combat system to platform system interfaces in support of the mandated system reviews;
  • Identify hazards, develop risk records and execute the mitigation strategy as it relates to the software components of the combat system, platform system and relevant software components of the support system;
  • Support the Cyber worthiness and Seaworthiness Assurance teams;
  • Support the development of the Whole of Ship Assurance and Acceptance as constrained to software considerations;
  • Provide direction, particularly with regards to program relevant education, for the Combat System Software Engineer and the Platform System Software Engineer direct reports;
  • Ensuring access restrictions to export controlled information including International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) and French controlled information is maintained.

Defence will make a superannuation contribution of 15.4 per cent, higher than most industries, with the opportunity for you to make additional personal contributions. Defence is an inclusive employer and values the contributions a diverse workforce brings to the Department.
