Intuit Australia managing director Nicolette Maury says the two-storey office building is now home to 60 employees who support small business, accounting and bookkeeping customers nationwide, and provides room to accommodate continued expansion a co-working space for ecosystem partners to foster “deeper integration and collaboration”.

Brad Paterson, vice President and managing director of Intuit in Asia Pacific, said the move to flagship headquarters marks a “coming of age” for Intuit Australia.

“Since Intuit’s launch here in 2013, the team has grown to more than 70 people across three states.

“This move represents a significant investment to support expansion under the stewardship of one of Australia’s leading women in technology. It will help us serve our customers and create one of the best places to work in Australia.

“We are definitely number one at number one.”

Maury said the space in the new building has been created to mimic the “look and feel of a startup, reflecting Intuit’s workplace culture and reputation as a 30 year old startup because of its constant innovation based on customer feedback”.

“At Intuit, everyone is an entrepreneur. We work in agile teams and encourage rapid experimentation, idea generation and decision making based on data and customer insights.

“I’m delighted that our new office space enables us to create more opportunities for close collaboration with customers through training and insights sessions. This will help drive innovation, and ultimately that’s what we’re all about.”
