Job creation in Victoria has been given a boost, with two companies establishing new positions in Melbourne.

Assembly will create 60 new full-time jobs over the next three years, while Dialog Information Technology will establish a new Innovation Factory in Melbourne, creating 200 tech jobs.

Founded in 2013 in Collingwood, Assembly 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.

“It’s great to see successful home-grown start-ups, like Assembly, stay true to their roots and expand here in Victoria. We have the highest number of tech graduates in the country and this expansion will mean more high-skill jobs for our future,” said Minister for Small Business, Innovation and Trade Philip Dalidakis.

Meanwhile, Dialog’s Innovation Factory will start operations in the coming months, focusing on new business practice areas such as digital, accessibility, cybersecurity, cloud computing, social media, mobile and analytics.

The hub will support Dialog’s strategic plans to expand into the North American and Asia–Pacific markets, initially focusing on Hong Kong, Singapore, China and New Zealand.

Dialog’s investment will also work with local universities to fill 30 new graduate positions, bringing its Victorian workforce to more than 600.

“Dialog’s Graduate Program will be drawing on the skilled graduates coming out of Victoria’s education sector, growing both them, the local talent pool and further improving availability of highly experienced technologists across the state,” said Dialog Managing Director Alan Key.
