DTO to commence recruitment campaign to find Australia’s best tech talent

27 August 2015

The Digital Transformation Office (DTO) is calling on Australia's best tech talent as it embarks on a national recruitment drive to accelerate the pace of digital transformation across the Australian Government.

Under the campaign, the DTO will recruit around 20 developers and designers, researchers and product managers to deliver lasting change and make a real difference to the millions of people that interact with the government every year.

Whether you are an exceptional graduate or experienced professional, the DTO is seeking expressions of interest from anyone with the passion and skills to deliver public services online that are simpler and easier to use.

"This is an exciting initiative but it's also complex and requires significant cultural change," said Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull.

"Government services don't face competition in the traditional sense but that doesn't mean they should be immune from the disruptive technologies that are having an impact right across the economy.

"The DTO needs to adopt an agile, startup-like culture so it's important that we recruit people with the right mix of skills and attitude to speed up the transformation of government services."

The DTO has been established to unwind complexity and deliver services that are simpler and faster for the customer.

It will work with government agencies and collaborate with business and the tertiary sector, including co-locating a small team at the University of Technology Sydney.

Expressions of interest can be submitted at the DTO website:
