GRADUATES/JUNIOR POSITIONS | Small Specialist Team | Canberra

We are a small consulting company dedicated to helping Australia improving economic and social outcomes from better data.  We want to be profitable, but we realise life is more than that.

Improved data management can reduce community isolation, improve outcomes for people with disability, point the way to a better education system, alter people’s minds on approaching deep social issues.  Data is a new resource utility to the community that is fundamental as water, electricity, transportation or the internet.  Data is the new black.

Data Architecture and Data Modelling is changing.  Moving away from sourced from IT skills, we are looking for specialists in language and organisation.  We are looking for deep conceptual thinkers who can separate different things and merge similar things in their heads.

You first discovered this when you played with blocks as a toddler.  All the same colour blocks were put in the same place or maybe one of each colour were arranged in stacks in the same order.  You sorted dolls by size.  You needed order in your life.  You needed order in your language.

You might have gone onto a degree in the Arts (English, languages or linguistics) or Psychology but are now searching for a slightly different path.

So are we……
