    • Re-envision our large networks as virtualized, cloud-based software to foster sustainability and improve the customer experience
    • You will gain skills in network function virtualization (NFV), cloudification (private and public cloud), and software development and operations (DevOps)
  • Cybersecurity Solutions: 
    • Develop pioneering cybersecurity and privacy solutions to protect Canadians from the full spectrum of online threats
    • The skills you will develop include cybersecurity and threat assessment, software DevOps and security product development
  • 5G and Wireless Networks: 
    • 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 will learn about wireless IP access design, wireless core network design, data science, 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 will work closely with experts on our technology teams to build apps and platforms using cutting edge technology (i.e. microservices, containers, GCP) to elevate the customer experience
  • Future Friendly Technology Services: 
    • Deliver state-of-the-art, market-leading video and connected home solutions for our customers including smart security solutions
    • Working in collaboration with our business and technology implementation teams, the skills you will 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




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.


Positions are available in Victoria, Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal so you can stay in one place or take advantage of rotating through national teams and living in different parts of Canada during the program. Additionally, TELUS’ Work Styles program gives teams the flexibility, tools and support to work when and where they will be most effective – whether that’s from an office location, from home or a hybrid of the two.


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 connections with industry experts to widen your exposure to future-focused innovation.
