Splunk establishes ANZ headquarters in Melbourne

Software company Splunk will set up its ANZ headquarters in Melbourne, creating more jobs for the tech sector.

The company has more than 2700 employees across the US, Canada, France, Europe, the Middle East and the Asia Pacific, with more than 12,000 customers in over 110 countries using its products.

“Setting up our ANZ headquarters in Australia’s tech capital will increase our ability to attract clients throughout the region. It places us squarely in an ecosystem with like-minded companies,” said Splunk Chief Executive Officer Doug Merritt.

The San Francisco-based software company is the market leader in analysing machine data to deliver operational intelligence for security, IT and business organisations.

After being founded in 2003, Splunk publicly listed on the NASDAQ in 2012 and has since grown to have a market capitalisation of more than US$8 billion, counting Atlassian and The Coca-Cola Company among its biggest clients.

Splunk joins a long list of leading global tech companies that have set up regional headquarters in Victoria in recent times including Hired, Slack, GoPro, Square and Expensify.

The Victorian Government is investing in the state’s tech sector to position Victoria as a prime destination for business and tech investment in the Asia Pacific region.

“The stream of US tech companies setting up headquarters in Victoria shows we’re getting things right and quickly becoming the Asia Pacific’s technology hub,” said Minister for Small Business, Innovation and Trade, Philip Dalidakis.

Since November 2014, there have been more than 2140 new tech jobs created from investment alone.
