At Openet, graduates start in a rotation of various roles where they learn the ropes and get a taste of what they like. After a year they chose between these, with the aid of the graduate career mentor.
These roles include:
- Product architecture and development
- Web development
- Programming languages such as Java and C++
- Technical writing
- Professional services
- Oracle database administration
The qualifications we look for to fulfil ICT roles are a bachelor’s degree in Engineering or equivalent experience.
First and foremost we are looking for people who are enthusiastic, willing to learn, and open to feedback and guidance. Once you have most, if not all, of the technical skills listed below and have the drive outlined above, then you will be a welcome addition to our family:
- C and C++
- UNIX OOD
- Java NT VC++
- Telecom networking protocols
There are many paths open to graduates at Openet – they may choose technical outlets of engineering, design or testing. Training is available to all who wish to progress in a technical or managerial capacity.
We encourage employees to pursue what they are interested in and become Subject Matter Experts (SME) in that particular area. Therefore, our employees pursue what they are most interested in to keep their job fresh.
The evidence is in the number of employees we have in Openet for 10 years or more, even with all this fresh blood coming in.
You get 21 holidays per year and service days (adding up each year to a total of 26 days). If you are working in a job that requires travel then these days can be of huge benefit to get an extra level of involvement in that culture and get to know locals.
Other benefits include Aviva health insurance (our plan even includes money off up to 25 massages a year!), pension plan option (to pave the road to those long holidays on the beach in retirement), long-term disability and life assurance.
The Sports & Social Club runs monthly meetings, which have covered a night walk up the Hell Fire Club, orienteering, pottery class, rafting, go-karting, trips to Dublin Oktoberfest, poker and table quiz nights. Employees have also set up football games and fantasy rugby drives.
