Myriota’s rapid expansion on show at JOBEX


Exhibiting at JOBEX this November, and looking to triple their workforce in the next 12-24 months, Myriota is a prime example of the opportunities that technology is bringing to the South Australian workforce.

Advanced technology is a leading field across the world, and here in South Australia one such example of the great opportunities presented by the high-tech industry is Myriota.

After developing a low-cost, long battery life circuit board and creating a satellite network through which their technology can communicate valuable data from locations such as remote water tanks, livestock, and goods travelling across international routes, to an app on a user’s phone, the company has expanded from zero employees to 11 in just over a year and a half.

The company are now in what Myriota’s Business Development Executive, Tom Rayner, refers to as “a phase of rapid expansion,” and are looking to triple their current workforce in the next 12-24 months.

To keep a finger on the pulse of South Australia’s highly skilled tech community, Myriota will be exhibiting at JOBEX this November.

“We like showcasing ourselves as one of the up and coming companies of the state, and we’re looking to attract the best and brightest to come and work for Myriota,” Rayner says.

“We’ll be explaining our technology and showing some of the applications that we’ve got out there in the field right now, with a view to giving people an understanding of some of the skills that we’re going to need rapidly in the next couple of years as we take this company global.

“I think the mood is generally quite good, and I see particularly with young people who are coming to us – and they’re coming to us all the time at the moment – looking for opportunities to apply their high skill set to jobs here in Adelaide, rather than the default be looking to move to either Sydney or Melbourne, which is a positive thing.”

With so many exhibitors pulled together in one room, Rayner says JOBEX will highlight just “how diverse the [South Australian] economy is and how many opportunities there are out there.”

As Myriota continues to grow, it’s Rayner’s hope that the flow on effects will be broader than just an expanded tech industry.

“Our specific technology is around satellite communications, but where the real jobs growth and the real economic development stems from that is that it’s not just the communications piece, because when people apply our technology into all the other add-on sectors, like agricultural, maritime, defence, or asset tracking, or utilities monitoring, or logistics – whatever it might be – then you’re just using our relatively small company as the catalyst to create further jobs in a wider economy,” he says.
