Software-defined Networking (SDN):
Re-envision our large networks as virtualized, cloud-based software to foster sustainability and improve the customer experience
You will gain skills in network function virtualization (NFV), cloudification, and software development and operations (DevOps)
Develop pioneering cybersecurity and privacy solutions to protect Canadians from the full spectrum of online threats
The skills you will develop include cybersecurity and threat assessment, software DevOps and security product development
5G and Wireless Networks:
Advance Canada’s largest and fastest wireless network as we evolve to a hyper-connected 5G world
You could get to work on macro sites, in-building networks and Wi-Fi; and will learn about wireless IP access design, wireless core network design, data analytics, virtualization and DevOps
Design and develop the next generation of connected living solutions to improve our customers’ lives and deliver on our future friendly brand promise
You will work closely with experts on our technology teams to build apps and platforms to elevate the customer experience
Digital Home Solutions:
Deliver state-of-the-art, market-leading video and connected home solutions for our customers including smart security solutions
Working in collaboration with our business and technology implementation teams, the skills you will develop include product development and implementation, software DevOps, the application of virtualization in creating and extending TELUS’ operating and business support systems, the development and deployment of advanced IP TV technologies, and next generation messaging and voice services
Your rotation assignments will be based on your strengths and future career interests, combined with strategic business needs, and you will have a mentor alongside you every step of the way to help support your goals and growth.
Positions are available in Vancouver, Edmonton, Toronto, Montreal, Rimouski and Ottawa so you can stay in one place or take advantage of rotating through national teams and living in different parts of Canada during the program. Additionally, TELUS’ Work Styles program gives teams the flexibility, tools and support to work when and where they will be most effective – whether that’s from an office location, from home or a hybrid of the two.
If you are an engineering graduate wanting to pursue a P. Eng accreditation, we will support you in this endeavor by helping you gain relevant work experience towards your designation. You will have access to both formal training and experiential learning opportunities, as well as connections with industry experts to widen your exposure to future-focused innovation.
