About our Business

Exciting times ahead for Optus…the convergence of technology, media and telecommunications is changing the nature of our business. We continue to look for increasingly innovative ways to use technology and connectivity to improve our customers’ lives and businesses. Our ambition is to deliver game-changing customer experiences.


Optus Business is an extremely dynamic organisation, where we are constantly innovating. This challenging and rewarding role lends itself to someone who is highly capable and articulate, primarily self-managed, with a strong desire to promote Optus ICT products and services.


About the Role

We are looking for an outstanding Consulting Architect, to work with our Enterprise level clients in Melbourne. One who can demonstrate a prowess for strategic thinking and a passion for influencing the engagement outcome, to join our customer sales and engagement team. Theirs is a high performance culture, with enviable capabilities in the ICT arena, providing a high level of business and technical consultancy, across all areas of our strategic client accounts. As the successful Consulting Architect, you’ll be a key link between the sales and professional services delivery teams.


You’ll analyse prospective and current customer requirements, to develop game changing solutions that address our client’s needs, including complex solution architectures. Liaising closely with Optus internal Managers will be key to ensuring correct scoping and pricing of these solutions. We will also expect you to constantly strive to improve the engagement of Consulting (Solutions) Architects into customer opportunities. It's an enviable opportunity within one of Australia's most loved ICT and telecommunication brands.


About You

You'll have demonstrable and substantial levels of solid Architect experience, including that key mix of technical knowledge and a pedigree in handling client-facing solutions. We expect that you will be a subject matter expert in consultative and creative solution selling, with deep exposure to developing solutions that meet a client's requirements and selling using NPV or ROI commercial models.


Your natural ability in developing detailed customer technical designs, bills of materials and client proposals will be obvious and you’ll be passionate about designing complex, diverse technical solutions. As with all Architecture roles, a high degree of commitment, enthusiasm and drive, to work through conflicting pressures and priorities will be essential. You will embody both Optus and our client’s vision, values and corporate ethos all in one package!


We aren’t just a Telco anymore; we are a company of innovation, we have moved to the forefront of technology and entertainment. We are a part of the digital disruption, changing the way we deliver media services and content to you; continuing to create experiences that move you.


If this sounds like you, then we’ll be excited about seeing your application.

Optus believes in the strength of a vibrant, diverse and inclusive workforce where backgrounds, perspectives and life experiences of our people help us innovate and create strong connections with our customers.
