Apart from being one of 2019's and 2020's "Best Place to Work in Australia", there are many other reasons to be excited about the potential to join Macquarie Telecom Group, so we have put this page together to showcase them as a company and give you the knowledge to confidently answer the question:"Why do you want to work here?"


The Macquarie Telecom Group journey started when they were an entrepreneurial startup with a passion for making a difference in customer service and opening up the newly deregulated telecom industry.

The industry was dominated by the monopolist Telstra who called customers “subscribers”, tried to crush competition wherever it emerged and delayed the introduction of new technologies that would erode their profits.

Mac Tel was the challenger who fought for deregulation, so as to bring down prices and launch new innovative technology for their customers. And they still are!

Mac Tel started the hard way with just the savings of their founders, their competitors were quite different from the beginning …Telstra inherited the world and Optus was the lucky child that had parents with virtually unlimited capital. Customers gave Mac Tel the opportunity and they changed their service experience and grew from zero to $200m in revenue in just 10 years.

They have never stopped innovating, here are some of our favourites.

  • In 2000 They opened Australia’s first Tier 3 data centre.

  • In 2005 They brought competition and innovation to Government security.

  • In 2011 They brought private cloud compute and cloud storage services to Australia.

  • In 2015 They launched the first WAN that enables customers to embrace SaaS cloud offerings.
