About Us

Populo was born from a software development company that had to find innovative ways to address the IT & Technology skills shortage and rising wages in Australia. Today, we offer businesses access to offshore talent that feels like an onshore team, with seamless communication and collaboration. Populo's extensive network of IT professionals allows you to quickly and efficiently find the perfect fit for your organization, while providing ongoing support to ensure the success of your IT department. We are committed to providing the highest level of service to our clients and are proud of our journey and the services we provide.

Our Story

We make global teams function.  We simplify for companies to hire, pay, and support worldwide outsourced IT staff.  We established Populo, a solutions centre, to address the issues we had when launching our company from thousands of miles away and managing remote IT staff.  As entrepreneurs, we think your primary focus should be on growing your business and gaining access to the greatest global talent rather than on the administration required to do it.

We believe in providing every employee with the tools and support they need to feel like a team member, regardless of where they are. Populo allows you to spend more time doing what matters and less on administrative tasks. We are our customers, and our platform and becoming a worldwide remote-first firm has given us incredible freedom.
