The Victorian Government has welcomed news that leading payments platform Assembly, formerly known as PromisePay, will bolster its global headquarters in Melbourne—creating 60 new full-time jobs over the next three years (2017-2020).
The Victorian Government helped support the company, which boasts the world’s most flexible payments platform, to grow their current Victorian workforce instead of expanding its office in Manila, Philippines.
Founded in 2013 in Collingwood, the company now has offices in St Louis, Sydney, and Manila, as well as its global headquarters in Melbourne. Its high-end customers include Gumtree, Carsales, Airtasker, and Flippa.
Assembly provides an end to end payment solution that allows businesses to accept, manage, and disburse payments however they choose, designed for businesses that are frustrated by the complexity and limitations of existing payment systems.
The announcement comes as another boost to Victoria’s ever growing technology sector which has also seen moves by Hired, Square, and Slack to set up regional HQs in recent times—joining the growing list of successful home-grown startups including Kogan, Carsales, and Realestate.com.
Victoria’s tech industry now generates more than $34 billion in annual revenue and employs more than 91,300 people, with numbers primed to grow in 2017.
