IRESS – Why Work For Us?


Our story began in Australia in 1993.

Back then it was just a few of us developing specialised financial markets trading software from a small room. Fast forward a couple of decades and we’re one of the leading suppliers of innovative technology solutions for clients in the financial markets, wealth management, and mortgage sectors. Our ever-expanding team and offices cover the globe across Australia, Asia, Canada, New Zealand, South Africa and the UK, and we just keep growing.

Global expertise, local relevance

We may be global but we haven’t lost our focus. In fact we think the benefit of our global expertise combined with our local market knowledge makes for something very special. It’s what enables us to provide outstanding financial services software solutions that are tailored to each region and that deliver truly transformational results for our clients.

Work where transformational things happen

We’re an international business made up of friendly, diverse people, solving complex and interesting problems for clients from across the financial services industry - making us an exciting, rewarding and fun company to work for.

Our people are the perfect mix of innovators, rocketeers, entrepreneurs, storytellers and scientists, and we want the very best people to be part of it.



Be part of something amazing

We're the technology partner to some of the world's most iconic financial services brands. You name them and chances are they use our software to efficiently advise, plan and transact to help their clients meet their financial goals. It's more than likely that you've had, or will have, an interaction with us at some point in your life which we think is pretty amazing.

As well as Oz, we've got offices in some of the most inspiring places worldwide. So where could a career with us take you?

Work where transformation happens

You can be sure of one thing, a career at IRESS isn't just your average job and our people are far from average too. We're a team of thinkers, problem solvers, listeners, leaders, motivators, and innovators - it's inspiring and it's unique.

You'll get to work with teams around the world all using the latest workplace technology.

We collaborate and we create, combining market-leading software with great expertise to deliver the best solutions for our clients (and we have fun doing it).

A happy and rewarding place to be

We believe creating an inclusive workplace, where people feel supported to be their best both at work and at home, is how we'll achieve great things. It's why our employee benefits are some of the best in the industry and support our people at every stage of life.

We're proud to be taking a leading position when it comes to creating a work environment that's more diverse, inclusive and innovative - read more about our commitment to it in these links.

International exposure

With clients located around the world and a globally connected team, you’ll gain international exposure. A career with IRESS offers many opportunities to grow, learn and develop - the only question is, where do you want to go?

Diversity & inclusion

As a global business, we recognise and celebrate our diversity. Our people survey showed that 85% of our people believe their leader genuinely supports equality and inclusion for all.

Making a bigger difference

Giving back to the communities in which we live and work has always been important to us.

Two years ago we set up the IRESS Foundation as a way to more formally recognise the significant efforts of our team and collectively make a bigger difference where we could. Since then we’ve committed our support to a wide range of causes from health and homelessness, to social issues and unemployment, and found ways to give our time and skills in other areas - like sharing our enthusiasm for technology through educational projects. This is a compilation of the highlights of the great work that’s happened so far.
