Global network analytics company, Niometrics, today announced Melbourne will host its new research and development (R&D) hub and Australia-New Zealand headquarters, creating at least 30 jobs.
The move underpins Victoria’s growing status as Australia’s top innovation and tech state. Global tech leaders such as Alibaba, Dialog, Square, Slack, Live Tiles and CyberGym have all recently established regional headquarters here.
Victoria produces a third of the nation’s tech graduates, while the state’s digital economy currently generates approximately $34 billion in revenue annually and employs over 83,000 people.
With eight offices around the world, Niometrics serves twelve telecommunications network operators across countries including Singapore, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Philippines, Australia and the UAE.
The Melbourne R&D Hub will develop key network and data analytics, and test, develop and deploy new technology.
To achieve this, the Hub will partner with Victoria’s world-class research institutions and tap into the large pool of ICT graduates pouring out of our leading universities.
New positions will include High-Performance DPI Engineers, C-Programmers, UX/UI Developers and Designers, Data Scientists, Database Engineers, Business Analysts and office administration roles.
This will be Niometrics third major R&D hub, after Singapore and Athens, and is expected to be operational by the end of November 2018.
