We are looking for leaders like you to help us build Canada's digital future

Are you a new engineering or computer science graduate looking to start your career with one of Canada's leading technology companies? Do you want to envision and build state-of-the-art technologies including 5G networks, Software Defined Networking (SDN), cybersecurity solutions and fibre optic networks, working alongside the best minds in the industry? Then come join TELUS' Graduate Technology Leadership Program (GTLP), a specialized career development program that focuses on technology and innovation.

What will you get to work on?

Through a series of rotations, the GTLP will expose you to a breadth of functions to grow your career while you deliver on the technology needs of our customers. In less than 3 years, you will complete three rotations designed to help you build foundational technical and leadership skills in one of five technology streams. Positions are available in Vancouver, Edmonton, Toronto and Montreal so you can stay in one place or experience living in different parts of Canada during the program.

If you are an engineering graduate wanting to pursue a P.Eng accreditation, we will support you in this endeavor by helping you gain relevant work experience towards your designation. You will have access to both formal training and experiential learning opportunities, as well as access to connect with industry experts to widen your exposure to future-focused innovation.

Your rotation assignments will be based on your strengths and future career interests, combined with strategic business needs, and you will have a mentor alongside you every step of the way to help support your goals and growth.

The skills you would develop include cybersecurity and threat assessment, software DevOps and security product development • Wireless network: Advance Canada's largest and fastest wireless network as we evolve to a hyper-connected 5G world. You could get to work on macro sites, in-building networks and Wi-Fi, and learn about wireless IP Access design, wireless core network design, data analytics, virtualization and DevOps • Software development: Design and develop the next generation of connected living solutions to improve our customers' lives and deliver on our future friendly brand promise. You'd work closely with experts on our technology teams to build apps and platforms to elevate the customer experience • Future Friendly Home Services: Deliver state-of-the-art, market leading video and connected home solutions for our customers. Working in collaboration with our business and technology implementation teams, the skills you would develop include product development and implementation, software DevOps, the application of virtualization in creating and extending TELUS' operating and business support systems, the development and deployment of advanced IP TV technologies, and next generation messaging and voice services
