To meet the expectations of data producers and consumers, we’ve undertaken a significant organisational redesign. We’ve thrown out our traditional hierarchical structure and ‘waterfall’ approach to product development. They can’t deliver the environment we require for innovation at the pace we need to innovate.
We’ve adopted an agile methodology for product development and structured ourselves into cross-functional, autonomous teams, with each team responsible for the end-to-end delivery of their mission, which aligns with that of the organisation.
These changes have opened up a considerable number of new staffing opportunities.
We have big plans and we need to increase our capacity and broaden our capabilities to deliver them. We want more people who are skilled at creating the connections required to enable the efficient flow of data through the data economy, so we’re actively recruiting.
PSMA Australia’s mission is to support the broadest possible use of trusted, location data in a way that enables our customers to effortlessly improve their businesses. Every decision we make about recruitment must help ensure we maximise our potential for achieving that.
Our mission has been longstanding, but the environment in which we’re operating has changed. The maturing of remote sensing means more location data is being produced than ever before. And human beings are increasingly connected and mobile and finding new uses for location data and new ways of consuming it. These changes have broadened the scope of our mission and how we must go about delivering it.
PSMA delivers fundamentally significant, nationally relevant digital assets to the Australian economy.
We’re in a strong position, but we need to maintain that in the face of change and continue delivering value through broad access to location data.
Our staff numbers have grown steadily over the years, and we’re at it again. Join us.
