We’re interested in talking to a wide variety of people. Here are some of the traits we’re looking for in scholarship candidates:
High school students who are going into their first year of university
Highly curious and love problem-solving
Love coding (especially if you’ve undertaken personal projects beyond what you’vebeen doing in class)
No coding experience is required, but you think analytically and logically, and coding sounds interesting to you
Challenge the status quo
Thrive when faced with new and different problems every day
Work well with other like-minded people
All gender identities – we’re a highly inclusive workplace and all are welcome!
I was fascinated with technology from a young age and discovered programming at about 11. By high school, I was spending 30–40 hours a week learning programming, so by the time I started university I had the knowledge of a graduate software developer.
Why was your career path so unique?
After two years as a casual software developer at WiseTech, I realised that the knowledge and skills I was learning on the job were far more advanced than the concepts I was learning in my degree, so I decided to move to part-time study and full-time work. Eight years later, I’m now a Team Leader at WiseTech and will graduate with my Bachelor of Engineering in the next couple of years.
Words of advice
Understanding what you enjoy will take you a long way.
Lukasz Swierczynsk, Software Engineering Intern
Lukasz Swierczynski is a software engineering intern at WiseTech and final year university student at UNSW, who says that a career in technology wasn’t something he could have predicted when he was younger. But after taking a few short courses on coding, he quickly discovered a passion for it and has been loving it ever since.
We sat down with Lukasz to find out what about his experiences as a WiseTech intern, why he thinks the rotation program is a must do for all software engineers, and his advice for students considering undertaking an internship.
Why did you decide to study software engineering?
I didn’t initially plan to go into software engineering, but it’s something that I unexpectedly pivoted into. I always saw myself as more of a creative and I was actually planning on being a music teacher, but I’d always loved math, so I decided to try something a bit more technical. I took a bunch of short coding courses on websites like Udemy and Coursera and I started diving into teaching myself programming and software fundamentals. I ended up loving it and the next thing you know, I found myself enrolling into a university course to study it and here I am.
How did you hear about WiseTech?
I found my way here through UNSW’s Co-op Scholarship Program. They have a bunch of industry partners, WiseTech being one of them, so I signed up through them and found my way here.
During the interview process I had a chat to some of the talent team and they asked what my interests are, what type of technology I like to work with, and what my preferences are with coding. As a student, I wasn’t really sure, so I spoke about the things that I did enjoy doing at uni and ultimately said that I was open-minded. But what they really wanted to know was, “what’s the best team that we can put you in? Where will you thrive? Where are you most likely to reach your potential?”
How do you think the rotation program benefits software engineers?
At WiseTech, they’re very passionate about making sure that you’re comfortable where you are and that you’re delivering the best work that you can, and one of the ways that they do that is through what they call the rotation program.
There’s a lot of teams here working on various parts of the product, and depending on what your interests are, you might align much better to one of those teams than another. With the rotation program, you’ve got the opportunity to spend several months with one team before changing to another team, and this is something that every software developer and product manager gets the opportunity to do when they first join.
The goal is not only to connect you with people from different parts of the company, but to also give you a better idea of what it is that you really enjoy doing here. Then at the end of the rotations, you get the chance to choose where you want to be and the work you want to do. So you’re never really stagnating here, as there’s always something new to learn. If at any point you start feeling like you’re not reaching your potential, then they’ll find a way to make sure that you’re consistently challenged.
What have you enjoyed the most about your time at WiseTech?
This is my first time actually working in tech as an intern, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. But it’s been fun and everyone’s been really supportive. There’s no inside expectations of you as a student, people here genuinely want to help you grow and develop into the best software engineer that you can be.
But I think my favorite thing about working at WiseTech is the great culture. You always feel like you’re looked after, the work is challenging, and there’s infinite opportunities to grow. There’s really just a lot of great reasons to be here.
As a final year student, now is really the time for me to be thinking about what I want to be doing as I graduate. I was considering doing a few more internships at different companies and seeing what the tech world has to offer, but since coming to WiseTech, I feel like I can really dive into the work and learn so much more here.
What advice would you give to students considering applying for an internship?
I think an internship should be a goal for anyone studying computer science or software engineering. Through the internship, you really get to put your theory into practice. There’s only so much that a course can prepare you for in the real world. It’s not going to prepare you for the workplace dynamics or the nature of the group work that you’ll need to navigate.
Through an internship, you get to learn things because they need to be done not because it’s, you know, an assessment that you need to submit. So you get this overwhelming sense that the actual work that you’re doing has a purpose, and you’re actually contributing to this company and making an impact.
You don’t really need to fit into a certain mold at WiseTech. Everyone brings their own unique character and that’s what makes the teams that you’re in so vibrant, everyone can just be their authentic selves. And there isn’t this need to wear a suit and tie every single day, because people understand that when you’re comfortable then you’ll deliver the best work possible. I certainly didn’t fit into a mold. I didn’t graduate from high school and go straight into studying software engineering, but I think the talent team recognized and appreciated the effort I’ve put into learning and upskilling myself and they found a place for me here.
