Graduate Software Engineer

Company Description

Who we are

At Leidos Australia, our aim is to make the world a safer, healthier and more efficient place, but we won’t get far using existing ideas. We need incisive minds like yours to weave together information technology, engineering and science skills into practical solutions for the most complex and high risk challenges.

It’s work that matters, and a mission we are passionate about. As a large scale prime systems and services integrator, Leidos turns complex data into practical, usable solutions for our customers. In practical terms, we are Australia’s largest commercial supplier of intelligence services to the Australian Intelligence Community. We maintain legislative websites for governments, provide critical systems integration projects to the Department of Defence and support the IT environment for the Australian Taxation Office.

No matter who you are or where you work, Leidos has made it a key business goal to ensure everyone feels welcome, valued, respected and supported. It’s about understanding and recognising that everyone is unique and central to building a great place to work. 

We’re passionate about the fact that our work is not just interesting and challenging, but benefits Australia as a country. Innovation is a key value and central to the ethos, and change is constant. So there’s plenty of scope to think differently, develop and learn in an environment that’s both supportive and constantly evolving.

At the end of the 12 month program, Leidos graduates transition into roles across the company based on their strengths & aspirations and the needs of the business.
