Job Description

We are MYOB
MYOB is a business platform. Our purpose is to help more businesses in Australia and New Zealand start, survive and succeed. Our team is continually growing, inventing and disrupting conventions. To make all this happen, we are dedicated in creating an exceptional flexible employee experience for all team members and offer a culture where you can be yourself. We don’t want you to simply ‘fit’ into our already established culture, we want you to come and add to it, and make it even better. 

What's great about MYOB
- We're a product company, we create experiences that have 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. Bringing together diverse groups of people with different skills and backgrounds is how we bring value to our customers.
- Our home offices are set up just the ways we like it with our remote working budget.
- When the time is right, we still come together in our Cremorne office for collaboration and coffee. Outstanding team culture is important to us.

What's great about design at MYOB
- We have the autonomy to flex our design muscle over the full, end-to-end process, but we are a team of 40 passionate designers, across three cities.
- We love learning – we have weekly critiques and brown-bag sessions.
- We're supported by specialist service designers, visual designers and researchers.
- We don't throw our designs over the wall. We know that everyone here helps make the user experience, but the design team is trusted to make the call.
- We're people nerds, obsessed with making things that matter for our customers.
