The Disciplines

Software Engineering

Design, code and demo the latest and greatest features – all with a focus on the end user. We’re looking for someone who can share a fresh perspective with their team. So, be ready for real-world problem solving with some of our biggest products. Past teams have even worked with Software Defined Networks, Domain 2.0 and our evolving entertainment platforms.

Data Analytics

Got big ideas? We’ve got one of the world’s largest data sets - the only thing missing is you. Right now our most talented thinkers are sifting through the noise to find new solutions. If you join them, then we’ll set you up with hands-on training and the opportunity to make an impact. Add it all up, and your odds of a successful career are looking good (we did the numbers).

Network Engineering

Rely on a mix of data analytics, automation, network virtualization and optimization to put cutting-edge solutions to work. You’ll work with our experts to design, build, and turn up our networks and keep our communities connected.

Technical Business Management

Oversee resource allocation, analysis and more to help your team achieve its milestones. That means being a leader who can work with both management and tech teams, keeping projects on track and translating technical details. You should be able to share ideas both on the page and in person. And above all, bring your passion for all the cool things happening here.

Not sure of your path? That’s OK. We can help you identify where you want to be, and ensure you reach your career goals. You could be placed in one of these roles:

Software Engineer

As a software engineer you will work autonomously in small agile teams to build out next-generation technology solutions for projects such as 5G, Open-Source Initiatives, Software Defined Networking, Microservices, Automation and Cloud solutions. You will interpret a user story, which is the description of a software feature from an end user's perspective, and determine the best designed solution, code, and method to test. You will demo the user story solution for the software's product owner, gather their feedback and make any needed adjustments. You will also participate in daily meetings to communicate their progress and impediments with their team, as well as to divide up new user stories.

Network Engineer

As a network engineer you will create and implement cutting-edge network solutions using data analytics, automation, and network virtualization and optimization for the purposes of completing the build out, improvement, and maintenance of AT&T's network. You will interpret a user story, which is a description of a network feature from an end user's perspective, and determine the best designed solution, implementation, and test. You will demo their finished user story solution for the project's product owner, gather their feedback and make any needed adjustments. You will also participate in daily meetings to communicate their progress and impediments with their team, as well as to divide up new user stories.

Technical Business Managers

As a technical business manager, you will guide our transformation and growth by leading technical projects, managing operations, creating process improvement and M&Ps (methods and procedures), assessing solutions, managing vendor relationships, documenting software requirements or user stories, leading Scrum teams of developers, technicians, or small portfolios comprised of network elements, data stores or media. You may have supervisory responsibility for non-management employees or lead groups of peers in achieving team goals/milestones. You will communicate with all levels of management and leadership and must be able to translate technical details into common terms, as well as preparing oral, written, and visual communications. You may also may be responsible for preparing business cases, managing budgets and financials, or acting as a liaison in multi-team settings.

So, what are we looking for in a candidate? We are looking for someone of integrity, with excellent interpersonal, oral and written communication skills, and the ability to interface with all levels of staff and leadership, both internal and external. We value results-driven self-starters with the ability to work effectively in multi-disciplinary environments throughout cross-functional teams. You’ll also need to be naturally curious about the many innovations being fostered at AT&T every day and be a lifelong learner.

Key requirements:

  • Bachelor’s degree or higher in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, or Math).
  • Valid driver’s license and acceptable driving record for rotations that require driving.
