Tell us about your experience as one of Intuit Australia’s longest standing employees?
As you would expect, we’ve come a long way from having a few team members based in Melbourne to a team of over 200 now based in Sydney. It’s been incredible to be part of a team that’s building a brand here in Australia. Everyone knows QuickBooks in the US, so we’re trying to do the same here in Australia. Intuit is the best company I’ve worked for. They believe employees come first – if you look after them, everything else will fall into place.
What is your favourite part about working for Intuit?
The people. I love working with smart, driven people who are passionate about making a difference for small businesses and the accountants and bookkeepers who support them.
What was your proudest Intuit moment?
One of the key values at Intuit is We Care and Give Back. Very early in my tenure, as a team, we volunteered at a single mother's shelter and spent the day painting their common room and landscaping their front and back gardens. It was the first time I had done something like that and it was really fulfilling. I’ve had the opportunity to participate in various ‘give back’ opportunities since then.
What have been your favourite moments at Intuit?
There’s a few but I remember our first ever Australian roadshow in 2014, travelling around the countryside with the team in two cars, meeting advisors and creating awareness of QuickBooks Online. Then in comparison, the first QuickBooks Connect event, hosted by Rove McManus, in Australia in 2016 at the Sydney Cricket Ground was amazing and had thousands of advisors and small businesses attend. I’ll also never forget a team offsite in Sydney that was facilitated by Phil Cebrano’s “Rock Party” band. We still talk about that offsite today.
How do you find the culture at Intuit?
The Intuit culture is remarkable and we work hard to protect it. One of our values is Integrity without Compromise which guides everyone on how to work with our customers and with our team members. We’re recognised as a Great Place to Work and our culture is something new employees always comment on.
What attracted you to Intuit?
After working for Australia’s leading accounting software provider, I wanted to work for the world’s leading accounting software provider as I was keen to learn more about how a global business functioned. When Intuit entered the Australian market, they were building a team in Melbourne and a previous colleague contacted me to see if I was keen. He had my CV within minutes! Today, Intuit has over 103 million customers globally and revenues of over $12B and I'm extremely glad to have been a part of that journey!
