CBA, Commonwealth Bank, Perth The Commonwealth Bank Group has unveiled its latest technology hub in Perth, as part of its broader strategy to contribute to Australia’s digital economy and support a diverse pipeline of technology talent.

CBA’s Tech Hub program has been established to diversify the concentration of tech professionals outside of Sydney CBD, with the Bankwest and CBA Perth Tech Hub joining previously launched hubs in Melbourne, Adelaide and Brisbane.

Brendan Hopper, Chief Information Officer for Technology at Commonwealth Bank said, “Our latest technology hub in Perth will provide an innovative and collaborative space for highly skilled technologists, passionate engineers, analysts and developers. It underpins the Group’s more than $1 billion a year tech investment in supporting the digitisation of the Australian economy. This includes our nationwide technology hub strategy and our commitment to building world class engineering capability.”

“We believe we have one of the best early careers programs in the technology industry and we are ambitious to grow it in WA. Our partnership with leading universities in the state will help facilitate a sector-wide uplift of technology capability, talent pipeline and innovation.”

The new Perth Tech Hub will offer employment opportunities across data science, cybersecurity, and software engineering, and deliver projects that benefit CBA and Bankwest customers, colleagues and the communities in which they operate.

As part of its commitment to fostering future technology talent, the CBA Group has partnered with two major WA academic institutions – The University of Western Australia and Curtin University – and will provide valuable career experience for the next generation of technology professionals.

Bankwest Executive General Manager, Jason Chan said, “Bankwest is backed by CBA for growth into a future-fit, WA-based business, powered by brilliant people with the skills and career pathways needed to deliver customers the simple and secure digital banking experiences they expect.”

“We’re one of WA’s largest technology employers and an ideal host for CBA’s newest Tech Hub investment, which will be a centre for technology excellence and collaboration in WA, benefitting customers, colleagues and the community.”
