Melbourne, Australia based payments startup Assembly Payments has announced its plans to add more than 60 new team members to its ranks over the coming year. Assembly Payments will also solidify their Melbourne office as their Global HQ.
With 64 employees spread across its offices in Melbourne, Sydney, Manila, and St Louis, Assembly was exploring the idea of heading offshore before the Victorian government offered support in the form of a cash grant. Simon Lee, CEO of Assembly, said that while the company has a global team, it is committing to make Melbourne its biggest base. “The local ecosystem and environment are hugely important to us. We think Melbourne has the potential to be one of the most important financial technology centres of the world; it’s one of the most diverse, creative and forward thinking cities in the region, and those are the exact traits we search for in our people, so we think some of the best tech talent in the world can be found right here at home,” he said.
