Life at SpinifexIT

Learn more about how we started, our awesome team, as well as our advocacies and career opportunities.


SpinifexIT started as a small company run by two people- two Darrens, specifically– back in 2002, in a small office in Melbourne. The first set of SpinifexIT solutions were made to report on and reconcile payment summaries, and have since expanded to include SAP Payroll and SAP SuccessFactors solutions to help organizations be more productive, streamline their move to the cloud, increase employee engagement and improve employee experience- while preparing for what comes next.

The steady continuous growth over the past 20 years (as of 2022) included expanding the office in Victoria to accommodate more HCM & Payroll experts and solution developers, flying back and forth to North America while establishing a new Sales and Consulting team in Georgia, USA, building a development and support center in the Philippines, and finally, growing the EMEA region from Frankfurt in Germany.

Today, SpinifexIT employs more than 100 people who are looking to support our expanding customer and partner network as they transform their HR & payroll.
