We're MYOB

MYOB is the #originalstartup. Our roots are in finance and accounting software, but today we’re so much more! We’re building a business management platform to help more businesses in Australia & New Zealand Start, Survive & Succeed. Our team is continually transforming, inventing and disrupting conventions. We don’t want you to simply ‘fit’ into our already established culture, we want you to add to it, and make it even better! This is MYOB.

What’s Great About MYOB

We are a product company making something that has a meaningful impact on people.

We’re a tech company. Post-its and table tennis, sure. But really, it’s that buzz of people thinking about, debating and making something.

We work in cross-functional teams organised around customer value (and we try our best not to write sentences like that last one TOO much).

  • You don't have to pick between doing phenomenal work and growing people's careers - you get to do both
  • You will be part of the decision making, your voice brings design and customer experience to the leadership table.
  • We have a large passionate team of designers split across three cities.
  • We love learning – we have weekly brown-bags, design jams & critique sessions.
