Job Description: 

Welcome to Prominent Hill – We’re not your average Mine Site!

As part of OZ Minerals, here at Prominent Hill we like to embrace the new while respecting, recognising and remembering all of the people and hard work in the past that has made our operation one of the best performing copper mines in the world.


With an exciting and clear roadmap for our future, we are all about creating a place which welcomes everyone for who they are, embracing diversity of thought, background and experience, questioning the why and constantly improving how we deliver.  We don’t subscribe to a traditional mindset of how mining sites are supposed to run.

So, what does your new job look like?

Reporting to our Lead - Digital Mine Strategy, you will work within an agile delivery team to implement solutions that deliver business value by:

  • Developing, testing and supporting automated data extraction and data modelling pipelines.
  • Working closely with our data scientists and analysts to improve the use of the OZ Minerals Insights Hub data platform.
  • Automating data integrity, functional and unit testing as part of data pipeline deployment.
  • Delivering technical documentation to ensure solutions are supported and adhere to corporate standards.
  • Identifying, designing and implementing internal process improvements, optimising data delivery and re-designing infrastructure for greater scalability.
  • Build Power BI and Tableau dashboards that utilise the data pipeline to provide actionable insights into operational efficiency and other key business performance metrics.
  • Dealing with complexity by collaborating with colleagues, listening to customers, testing ideas and continuously learning.

What you’ll need to succeed:

  • Tertiary qualifications in computer science, information systems or similar. 
  • Experience in a relevant Data Engineering role. 
  • Proven SQL and Python programming skills as well as Cloud based technologies exposure.
  • Testing automation and orchestrating data pipelines competencies.
  • Contemporary data architectures understanding and well-developed documentation skills. 
  • BI and data visualisation proficiency – Tableau preferred. 

And what’s in it for you?

  • The chance to re-imagine support processes, in interesting, innovative and unexpected ways.
  • An innovative culture that knows sometimes things won’t work as we planned, we seek to learn and always improve.
  • Genuine flexibility – We don’t watch the clock, while you’ll be required to spend some time at Prominent Hill, we are open to discussing how, where and when you work.  We are all about attitude and what you can bring to the table.
  • Highly competitive market remuneration and a range of benefits and flexible leave options aimed to attracting and retaining the best talent.
  • The ability to challenge the norm, sometimes we don’t know what we don’t know so your ability to get curious and think differently is what we will value.
  • An opportunity to join a close knit and dedicated team who are committed to innovating and delivering future success at Prominent Hill.

So, think this is the job for you?

If the above excites you, and what you bring to the table is a great attitude and a desire to help shape our future, we would love to hear from you!  then we want you to apply!
