We’re responsible for the scale and simplification of technology across every aspect of CommBank to meet the evolving needs of our customers. We develop applications that leverage real-time capabilities, and we’re always thinking about new and better ways for our customers to interact with us.

Together with Operations, we are responsible for world-leading application of technology and operations across every single aspect of CommBank – from innovative product platforms for our customers, to essential tools within our business.

Whatever you’re working on, you’ll be empowered to spark change, transform an industry and deliver what really matters. We’re passionate about what we can do with a truly diverse team.

Our programs

Graduate Program

Our Technology program covers three streams:

In this program you’ll have the opportunity to rotate between any of these streams.

You will contribute to our technology and operations innovations within industry-leading teams while you’re supported and empowered to navigate and invigorate your career.

Our flexible 18-month program gives you the option to rotate across either complementing or widely varying teams. So whether you want to fast-track into a specialist role or discipline, broaden your expertise or simply ‘try something on for size’, you'll have the opportunity to tailor the career you want while we support you in navigating our vast tech landscape. Best of all, you don’t have to have it all figured out before joining us.

You only need to apply for the one program, indicating which stream you’d like to start in. Once you start, we’ll work with you to tailor the program to you.

Where could the Program take you?

The possibilities for our tech cohort is ever-expanding. Here are just some of the roles our grads have grown/transitioned into or have been performing from day one:

  • Emerging Technology Analyst
  • Agile Analyst
  • Business Analyst
  • Technical Analyst
  • Data Management
  • Strategy Analyst
  • Project Management
  • Change Analyst.

The roles available for the Technology Program are based in Sydney, with occasional opportunities in Melbourne and Perth. 

Summer Intern Program

During our 10-week Summer Intern Program you’ll receive training and networking opportunities, be supported by a buddy and get the chance to hone your skills in engineering (software, systems, data or machine learning), native mobile, architecture, infrastructure, cloud, cyber, strategy, delivery or operations.

Given the breadth and diversity of our tech makeup, we support you to identify a team that suits your existing capability and study interests, while providing meaningful challenges and exposure across our tech and operations platforms.

What we look for

Our diverse teams look for many different qualities in graduates. Broadly speaking, you are dedicated to creating a better experience for our customers; passionate about technology, the simplification of processes and organisational change.

You are an innate problem solver and curious about the world around you. We believe in using the right tool for the job, so an open mind to learning new skills and ways of working will go a long way.

Degrees

Most of our grad cohorts have completed a degree in something technically focused but not necessarily technically skilled, such as:

  • Information Systems
  • Business
  • Creative Intelligence & Innovation
  • International Studies/Marketing
  • Communications
  • Commerce
  • Psychology.

In line with the size and breadth of our business, if you have an underlying passion for technology and appetite to work in a highly complex and fast-changing business, we have many career pathways that are not dependent on your discipline degree.
