Infrastructure Performance Engineer


As the sun rises across our five regions, toilets flush, showers flow, water bottles are filled and coffee is brewed.

At Urban Utilities we provide drinkable, clean and accessible water to over 1.5million households across the greater Brisbane region every second of every day, and effortlessly remove it too.

As an essential service to the community, every Urban Utilities employee is a valued member of our collective team and contributes to the achievement of our purpose: to enrich quality of life.

We are currently on the search for an Infrastructure Performance Engineer to cover maternity leave for a period of 12 months. Based in our Fortitude Valley office, this is a Level 2 engineer role in the Investigations team.

In this role you will pull together business information system data and use performance building tools to efficiently illustrate performance of our assets (our water network, sewer network and treatment plants). You will be analysing information from multiple sources and visualising for both asset information in the system and the visibility of capital programs in the capital systems. You’ll be engaging and building relationships with teams around the business to understand their data sources. You’ll be process mapping as you go and on occasion you’ll take a lead on water or sewer investigations

If you thrive analysing data to gain insights then this is the role for you!

We’re looking for the following skills:

  • Expertise with Ellipse, Power BI and GIS
  • Well-developed skills in research, analysis and problem solving
  • Demonstrated experience in asset condition inspection and monitoring, fault identification and solution definition
  • Detailed experience preparing engineering advice in the form of terms of reference, business case documentation and submissions
  • Well-developed knowledge of construction, operational and maintenance practices

Traditionally this role has been filled by a civil engineer, however if you bring data analytic background instead we’d happily consider you. 

You’d be joining a close-knit and friendly team who like to kick big goals and have fun while they’re doing it. 

If you’d like to become a part of a forward-thinking utility, who cultivate an environment that encourages new ideas, embraces diversity of thought and values teamwork than please submit your application.
