Zendesk, a popular online customer support platform used by many organisations across the world, will soon open an office in Melbourne, Australia.
The company has been looking at hiring a number of Australian staff with Melbourne postings appearing on its careers site over the past few months.
Zendesk registered its Australian arm as a private company with the Australian Securities and Investments Commission on the 10th June this year, meaning it can now operate in Australia under the name Zendesk Pty Ltd.
By being a private company, it means Zendesk must be either limited by shares or unlimited with share capital, have up to 50 non-employee shareholders and, according to ASIC,
not do anything that would require lodgement of a prospectus.
It appears based on the jobs listed so far that Zendesk’s Melbourne office will be mainly focused on boosting sales in the Asia Pacific region, as well as providing support for local customers — via redwolf.newsvine.com
