MYOB expands Auckland-based online development capability
New Zealand’s largest accounting software provider, MYOB today announced it is expanding its Auckland operations by
creating more than 20 new research and development roles.
The new hires will be part of MYOB’s Enterprise Division

market leader in this segment across Australia and New Zealand, with the division delivering its solutions via an
extensive MYOB partner network.
MYOB will expand its successful EXO product range
with a new online solution tailored to meet the needs of mid-market organisations. This builds on the success of its
online accounting solutions for smaller businesses, LiveAccounts and AccountRight Live.
MYOB NZ Product Development Manager, Enterprise Division

company’s commitment to the New Zealand market.
“This new investment not only strengthens our local research and development capability, it provides a great opportunity
for local developers, testers, analysts and architects to be an integral part of a talented team. Growth and expansion
via launching a new product into the evolving online space signals an exciting time for the Enterprise Division. We look
forward to announcing further details over the next 12 months,” he says.
