Tech Leader’s New Melbourne Base A Win For Workers

20 December 2021

One of Europe’s fastest growing global digital transformation companies has chosen Melbourne – Australia’s leading tech city – to establish its Asia Pacific base.

Minister for Economic Development Tim Pallas today announced that Onepoint will expand its Melbourne operations and set up its APAC TechHub to service a growing client base across Asia and Australia, creating 100 highly skilled jobs in Victoria.

With 2,500 employees in 14 locations around the world, the Paris-founded company considered Victoria’s highly skilled tech workforce and deep coding expertise in identifying Melbourne as the best location to run its Asia Pacific operations.

The APAC TechHub will offer software engineering services and leverage the early success in delivering projects to Asian corporates including a pan-Asia health group, a pan-Asia digital first insurer and one of the largest telecommunication companies in Singapore.

Onepoint’s Australian base was established in Melbourne in late 2018. The company offers a range of advisory and tech delivery services in the areas of platforms and digital solutions, data and AI, design and experience, collective intelligence (human-centred design) and performance and risk.

The investment by Onepoint is an example of how Victoria is attracting global companies from growth industries in line with the state’s International Investment Strategy. Victoria’s tech sector contributes more than $38 billion to the economy annually and supports almost 140,000 workers across 20,000 businesses.
