Start your career where your work matters
Why the Future Makers Academy?
The Future Maker's Academy is our program for bringing people from diverse backgrounds together to create great software.
It provides a solid foundation to those new in their career on the things we value most in making software at MYOB. Participants learn by doing, working collaboratively with others under the guide of their mentors.
The academy is not just about writing code, it's about having a growth mindset, it's about team work, it's about learning our culture.
Our culture at MYOB is fun, innovative, diverse and collaborative. We love to learn and apply what we learn. We also value having a healthy work/life balance.
As an organisation we are values based, supported by a flat leadership structure. We are a fixture in Job Advisor's Coolest Companies in Tech and BRW's Most Innovative Companies lists.
What to expect?
Mentors are the lifeblood of the academy, when you join the Future Makers Academy you are placed under the guide of one or more mentors who are experienced practitioners in your field.
Under their guidance you work through a series of increasingly complex problems aimed at identifying and stretching your core skills followed by a series of 3-6 month periods spent in different delivery teams working on different parts of our platform.
By the time you progress out of the academy you will have further developed your technical and collaboration skills necessary for a long and successful career as a software professional at MYOB.
We have two intakes a year February & July in three locations:
Don't wait until just before one of those intake periods to apply. We usually confirm candidates at least 3 months in advance. Sign up to the mailing list to be notified when applications for an intake open up.

The Future Makers Academy program has given me an amazing opportunity to learn and grow. The best part has been the flexibility to learn at my own pace in a way that suits me.

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. I am supported by mentors who guide me through my acceleration and prepare me for crew rotations.
