Your role:

As an Aerospace Software Engineer, you’ll take on the challenging task of managing the complex software systems that keep Army helicopters running.

Design, construct and test large-scale software systems while project managing complex and mission critical tasks—all with state-of-the-art equipment at your disposal.

In this role, you will join the Army as a junior engineer and have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience with military aircraft. You will be responsible for managing a team of technicians that maintain and repair the Army's fleet of elite helicopters—the Armed Reconnaissance Helicopter, Black Hawk and Chinook to name a few.

As you progress, you’ll continue to gain training in mechanical, electrical, avionics and armament systems. If you’re looking for a challenging but rich and rewarding career, look no further.

Salary:

In the Army you'll get paid a highly competitive salary from day one regardless of your age, experience or qualifications; and your pay increases as you progress through training.

On completion of your initial military training and initial employment training, you could earn $82,941 per annum plus generous super.

Life in the Army:

Action, adventure, exciting career opportunities and amazing mateship—there’s so much to love about life in the Army. Whether you’re looking to pick up a new skill, get qualified with fully paid training or are up for a new challenge, you’ll find it all in the Army.

Not to mention there’s also the sense of accomplishment and pride that comes from serving your country and providing support to communities in need, both here and overseas.

This is no ordinary job—but that’s exactly what you’re looking for. Enjoy a rewarding career, opportunities to travel, excellent fitness facilities, and free medical and dental; all in a dynamic and fulfilling work environment.
