I want to excel in what i do.
We know what you need to excel in your role. Every job role in DSO is well defined. The competencies you require to excel in your current role, as well what to prepare for future roles will be clear to you. This clarity is also empowering because it enables you to take ownership of your success.
Where would I be in five years?

Personal and professional growth is important!
We understand that a rewarding career goes beyond pay and benefits. It’s about levelling up your mind set and skill set. That is why we have a DSO College that provides a wide spectrum of training courses tailored to meet the unique needs of our people. Knowledge sharing and idea generation also take place at all levels in DSO. Expect to learn from the brightest minds in the nation, exchange knowledge and give back when you have become the master.

A place for your ideas!
Yes and in fact, we have 4 office complexes around the Kent Ridge area. Our headquarters, The DSO Complex is designed to not only house our full research facilities such as our Robotics Laboratory, it is designed with plenty of open spaces and discussion areas perfect for idea creation! There is even a Playground (yes, you read it right), where everybody can use its full suite of facilities such as 3D printers to test out their ideas.
I want to have fun too!
And so do we! DSO excels in that, we dare say. For a start, join us in all year round recreational activities. The never-ending list includes Zumba Lunch Workout, Dragonboat, Art and Craft sessions and Movie Night. Want something even more fun and impactful?

How about good work-life harmony?
To put it simply, we understand the competing demands between your work and life responsibilities while you seek your personal interests. While it is always a juggling act, we strive to help you achieve all three together as teamDSO.
