Corporate Services

A career at Arup offers you the chance to make a positive difference in the world. Independently owned and independently minded, we attract a diverse mix of people to work on ground-breaking global projects. We have an ambitious commitment to be the digital leader in the built environment and have digital teams and experts all over the world, who collaborate on world-leading software, data and technology projects and products. Being a global team means we value people with diverse experiences, backgrounds, specialisms and skills.

The Role

This role provides an opportunity to be exposed to a wide range of activities and technologies in a thriving and highly technical environment.  You will be working to test and analyse solutions that will make a real difference to our engineering teams and to the products and services we deliver to our clients and customers.  There will be opportunities to demonstrate technical leadership on projects and development initiatives.

This role requires exposure to and an appreciation of good testing, test tools and development practices. The team is looking to expand its QA coverage and processes, so this role is both about helping to test our existing portfolio but also help drive an expansion of our QA processes.

You’ll join a growing and collaborative development team with a range of skills and experiences, based mainly in the Asia Pacific region. The role reports to the head of product and application development, who is based in Brisbane.

“I’ve always wanted to work for forward looking companies that embrace people from all cultures and I feel very supported at Arup. I’m relatively junior in my team, but I feel that both my contribution and my opinion are valued. I work in a diverse team alongside colleagues based in countries across the globe which means there is always something new to learn.”
