MYOB began 29 years ago with the promise of offering ‘incredible accounting software’ to small business. This software made their life easier by taking away the drudgery and frustration of running a business, making it easier for people to focus on what was important to them.
Today MYOB extends well beyond accounting software into a vast range of business and finance solutions perfect for start-ups through to bigger businesses. We know that behind every single business there is a person or a team of people, each with their own goals and ambitions. However these people choose to define success, MYOB exists to provide smart, easy to use solutions that match their ambition and help them on that journey. That’s why at MYOB we help more businesses in Australia and New Zealand start, survive and succeed.
MYOB has a host of intelligent and intuitive tools which not only make life easier for our customers, but also enable them to achieve their goals and ultimately succeed on their terms. Over the next three years we will create an unparalleled business management platform which will seamlessly connect businesses, their accounting partners and an eco-system of add-on solutions. The platform and the connections it will create will enable MYOB to deliver even more value to our customers and, ultimately, make every facet of business life easier.
Thinking about your first job in the tech industry? Start your career where your work matters. The Future Maker's Academy is our 'graduate' program that’s all about bringing people from diverse backgrounds together to create great software. We provide a solid foundation to those taking their first steps in their software development career. Plus it’s not just about writing code either, it's about having a growth mindset, teamwork and continuous learning.
Our grads start in our Future Makers Academy on a guided learning journey where they are mentored under dedicated mentors, with the purpose of accelerating and mastering their craft. Under their guidance, they work through a series of increasingly complex problems aimed at identifying and stretching their core skills, followed by placements in our technology teams working on different parts of our platform.
By the time our grads progress out of our academy, they will have not only developed the technical and teamwork skills we know are key for a long and successful career as a software professional at MYOB and beyond, but they will be fully equipped to own and drive their career.

Abby Thompson, Protégé Developer
At MYOB we work on accounting software. My area of responsibility currently is to learn MYOB’s tech stack and become a knowledgeable and efficient developer. My daily work includes learning best practises for coding and undertaking exercises to practise my learnings. An example exercise is this week I am building a working pacman as a console application. Whilst undertaking these exercises I have two mentors who guide me through my acceleration and prepare me for crew rotations. The Future Makers Academy has a super supportive network, I’ve not felt any imposter syndrome in my time here and to me that is a big green tick.
Ben Muller, Protégé Developer
MYOB’s Future Makers Academy has been an awesome experience and fantastic opportunity to expand my knowledge and skills by learning from some of MYOB’s most talented Software Developers. In the FMA, all Protégés are set up with two developers as their mentors. I generally spend approximately 1 hour with my mentors every day either doing a code review, theory or joining their teams to learn about their projects. Throughout the beginning of our journey we start a phase called Acceleration which is designed for us to master the craft of Software Development before we move into our crew rotations. During this time, we have a list of “Kata’s” (coding challenges) which we tackle and solve each. These help us with the theory topics that are covered throughout the course.
Leah Hou, Protégé Developer
I couldn’t be happier to join MYOB’s FMA’s program. The program gives me the freedom to learn on my own pace, and the content of the program are very well designed that it not only improves my technical skills, but also helps me develop very useful soft skills that I see long term benefits in my career. I feel very supported by MYOB’s people, everyone is there to help me grow and learn.
Helena Franczak, Protégé Developer
The Protégé program is amazing. It gives an opportunity to learn programming and networking in a stress-free environment. I feel very lucky to be able to participate in the program as I got a chance to have a ‘hands on’ programming experience in a professional setting. Every day I am having two sessions with senior developers who are happy to answer all my questions and provide directions. After presenting my solutions and learnings in front of a wider group of specialists, I will move to a stage where I will rotate between teams to find out what suits me best. Would it be a front end or back end ? I don’t know yet, but by the time I am done with the team rotations, I will be able to make an informed decision.
Michael Lumley, Protégé Developer
After I completed university, I wanted to gain real world experience and MYOB’s Future Makers Academy has given me that opportunity. Learning from two experienced developers as mentors gave me the confidence that when I joined a team, I'd be able contribute. After joining a team, I was able to experience real world development firsthand, actually contributing to MYOB products.
Elizabeth Whiley, Protégé Developer
The Future Makers Academy program has given me an amazing opportunity to learn and grow. MYOB has provided an excellent learning environment with two dedicated technical mentors, as well as ongoing support from experienced developers and my team. The best part has been the flexibility to learn at my own pace in a way that suits me. Every day is different in the Future Makers Academy program but it's always a lot of fun!
Emily Watson, Protégé Developer
Being a protege in the Future Makers Academy has been an amazing experience. I have had so many opportunities to learn from different people across the business and been supported at every step in the journey. The ability to rotate to different crews really gives you a broad perspective of working as a developer, allowing you to explore the different types of roles, including front and/or back-end development, dev-ops and security. I am always amazed at what you can achieve when learning is the main part of your job-description!
Eathan Langford, Protégé Developer
I have been lucky enough to be a part of the future makers academy. The culture at MYOB is such a nurturing environment, it’s really helped to be shaped into a good developer. The academy paired me with mentors who have donated their time to teach me best practices and aim to mould me into the best developer I can be. It’s a great program that gives me the confidence that I can achieve my career goals.
