Brisbane City Night

A global software firm has expanded its operations in Brisbane.

Console Inc., the enterprise software and interconnection platform changing the way businesses directly connect to their customers, vendors and partners, announced in November that Console Technology Pty Ltd had expanded its operations in the Asia Pacific region by opening a new, larger office in Brisbane.

Console’s Brisbane-based software engineering team plays a strategic role within the company’s global operations and is now home to 40 staff in research and development.

Brisbane Marketing’s Investment Attraction team worked closely with Console to develop a business case for the operation to expand in Brisbane over other competing locations. 

Lord Mayor Graham Quirk said he was delighted Console had chosen to headquarter its R&D operations in Brisbane, further enhancing the city’s influence in the Asia Pacific.

“Console’s Brisbane office has a research and development focus that reinforces our position as a significant digital city, demonstrating the attractiveness of our workforce to overseas companies,” Cr Quirk said.

“The Brisbane 2022 New World City Action Plan identifies the digital and creative industry as a key growth sector for the city and we welcome Console’s presence as an important contributor to that growth.”

Console Inc. CEO and Chairman Jef Graham said: “Brisbane has developed a reputation as a major international hub for open-source software development.

“Console Technology’s Brisbane team features leading open-source software and network engineers, who’ll play an integral role in expanding the company’s software-defined interconnection platform across the globe.”
