Good tech needs

That’s why we work with the best

Our Approach

Nothing makes us happier than when we’re faced with lines and lines of code, spiralling through iterations with a brilliant customer experience gleaming at the end of the project roadmap. We put our hearts and minds into our work so the user doesn’t need to. And if that sounds like your cup of code, keep reading.

Our Story

Owen and Marcus founded Symbiote with a simple vision: to provide exceptional tech solutions with a considered people-first approach, and have a bit of fun along the way. This diligent and engaged approach has led to more satisfied users and happier businesses like the Ian Potter Foundation, Public Transport Victoria, and the NSW Government.

Owen and Marcus began articulating their user-centric approach to tech solutions in 2009 as SilverStripe before renaming to Symbiote – a nod to the way they work alongside clients’ internal talent to ensure excellent outcomes and ongoing support.

Symbiote’s team continues to grow as they tackle more complex challenges with a range of new technologies and help more clients improve their customers’ experiences.

Work Culture

We love what we do and appreciate there’s more to life than work.

We understand the pressures and stressors that come with complex projects. That’s why we foster a collaborative environment that minimises stress and makes time for the fun stuff – like delivering excellent tech, drinking lots of good coffee, and learning as we go.

We believe in nurturing our people to grow and enjoy their time at work. We do that by creating a great workplace culture that supports holistic wellbeing.

That means monthly BBQs, support to continue your learning journey, get togethers that make the most of our epic neighbourhood, and our Workplace Wellness Program ensures you have time to get offline and reset before you need it.

We’re surrounded by great cafes and pubs, South Melbourne Market is a short walk away, and Albert Park is begging for a run close by too.
