Flexibility. I was lucky enough to take 10 months off work with my first baby in 2019 and again with my second in 2022. Becoming a first-time mum is tough, Aware made it easier by allowing me to remove myself from work and purely focus on my family.

Aware gives me the flexibility to simply embrace a greater work life balance. Sometimes this means spending extra time exploring Sydney with my wife and dog. Others it allows me to get out of the city for a long weekend at the snow.

Following my Summer Internship in December 2020, I moved into a permanent role as a Data Engineer. Aware has helped me to develop my career by working on multiple data-driven projects involving designing, developing and managing data pipelines in Microsoft Azure and Snowflake.

There aren’t many places you that offer the opportunity to participate in the take-private of a major ASX listed company, invest over $1bn in renewables globally and invest in a start-up. Couple that with one of the best working cultures makes you wonder, why wouldn't you work at Aware?!
