Grant Mathew - Application Engineer


What are you most known for?
 

Wearing tropical onesies on Fridays. Sailing in high winds. Less known for my love of bridges and structures in general.

What has been your journey so far? 

I had a steep learning curve coming out of a civil engineering degree but once I became familiar with the programming language and electrical equipment used by the company I have been able to work on a wide variety of projects that interest me. Now I am the GeoStructural lead and responsible for running training courses for clients.  

Why did you apply to work at Campbell Scientific Australia?

The variety of industries and work that CSA does is unlike any other role I had seen. Even looking outside of Townsville, there was nothing similar offered. I liked the idea of working on projects that aren’t boxed into a single industry/category. I also wanted to develop my skillset in programming and technology/electronics - and I still am!

How would you describe working for Campbell Scientific Australia?

Working for CSA is great! There is a lot of flexibility within the team and once you have good knowledge of the operations, you are quickly given the opportunity to handle your own projects.

There is a lot of personal guidance and a huge amount of resources to help you get started, but your ability to learn and develop solutions based on your knowledge/experience is highly valued.

Bradley Quantrill - Application Engineer


What are you most known for?
 

Music and mountain bikes! I frequently volunteer for local theatre productions and play in a three-piece cover band. I’ve also taken up mountain biking, and enjoy cross-country racing.

What has been your journey so far?
 
I started out fresh from university, and slowly worked my way up to specialising in communications and micrometeorology. I also am involved in internal affairs such as procedures and quality assurance.

Why did you apply to work at Campbell Scientific Australia?

I was drawn by the environmental focus of the role, particularly the weather aspects, and the feeling of helping others to create a difference was another major plus for me.

How would you describe working for Campbell Scientific Australia?

Every day is something different! Also, the working environment is excellent, with plenty of comradery and banter thrown around the office.

Kara Sutcliffe - Graduate Application Engineer

What are you most known for? 

Being the youngest person of the team and my love of fishing and boating.  It is great to work with people with a variety of ages and backgrounds, there is a lot to learn from others knowledge and experience.

What has been your journey so far? 

Currently being two months into the job, the journey has been fun and full of learning. Coming from a science and physics background, there is a lot for me to learn about programming, instrumentation and communication equipment, but it is great to see how my physics theories and knowledge are applied in my day-to-day job, when it comes to creating a solution for a customer. It is very fulfilling to know that our solutions that I have a hand in creating are being used to help people make decisions and monitor environments, all around the world. I know there is a lot more to learn, with the help of the very supportive team at CSA, and I am very keen to see where my role will take me.


Why did you apply to work at Campbell Scientific Australia?

I have always had an interest in environmental physics, from meteorology and climatology to oceanography and even renewable energies. Throughout my study, I also developed an interest in the agriculture and mining industry. So when I first heard of Campbell Scientific and dug deeper into what we do, to find such a wide variety of applications in one job, was an opportunity that could not be missed. As Campbell Scientific is a world-wide company, it would be expected that the Australian office, be located in one of the countries major cities. To find such an opportunity in a city like Townsville, was another reason why a North Queensland local like myself could not miss this opportunity.


How would you describe working for Campbell Scientific Australia?

CSA has a very supportive, fun and passionate work environment. It is awesome to be a part of a team that values each and every member equally. Birthdays and anniversary celebrations are never missed, if there is an opportunity to have cake, a bbq and a few laughs, the whole team is there to be part of it.
