MTX Group has today announced it will establish its first ever service hub in Adelaide, creating around 500 jobs within the next three to five years.
The service hub is the first of the kind to be set up in Australia by the Texas company.
MTX Group, a leading global technology transformation company, powered by Maverick Quantum (mavQ) Artificial Intelligence Platform, helps organisations make better decisions, with speed and quality.
Currently managing the COVID-19 vaccination rollout for New York City, Chicago and Houston, the company provides expertise across a range of platforms and technologies, including Google Cloud, Salesforce, artificial intelligence/machine learning and data analytics.
Premier Steven Marshall said the announcement by MTX Group to establish in Adelaide cements South Australia’s hi-tech ecosystem as one of the world’s best, with the state continuing to attract leading global technology companies.
“MTX Group is yet another global company that is choosing South Australia as its home,” Premier Marshall said.
“For the company to be creating 500 local jobs in the next three to five years is a big coup for our State when it needs it the most.
“Today’s announcement by MTX Group adds to a long list of companies like Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud and Accenture, who have all decided to invest and create jobs in Adelaide.
“As a government, we have linked two of the world’s leading artificial intelligence and data analytics capabilities here in Adelaide – the Australian Institute for Machine Learning and MIT bigdata Living Lab – and that is a big attraction to companies such as MTX,” Premier Marshall said.
With data as the new currency, MTX is committed to advancing society with education, technology, and creating a better quality of life while partnering with government agencies and the private sector across health and human services, labour and workforce management, public safety and law enforcement, education and transportation.
“Adelaide’s vision for the next 10 years is attractive to MTX as it dovetails our desire to create high-paying jobs and make a meaningful impact in the community,” MTX Founder and Chairman, Das Nobel said.
“South Australia offers a unique platform through research, skills and collaborations that will enable development opportunities in AI, space technology, renewable energy and health. MTX will be able to bridge academic consortiums and businesses in a mutual partnership that provides salient training internships, high-paying jobs, and curriculum to this talent source.”
Minister for Trade and Investment Stephen Patterson said the innovative nature of South Australia and the opportunities for unique industry collaboration, underpin the state’s attractiveness as an investment destination.
“South Australia is attracting global companies that want to leverage our artificial intelligence and data analytics expertise,” Minister Patterson said.
“Having MTX Group in South Australia supports the Marshall Government’s goal of bringing like-minded companies together to collaborate and partner on projects that will benefit not only other South Australian businesses, but the South Australian community.”
MTX Australia’s CEO Ben Papps said MTX recognised South Australia’s leadership in AI and machine learning.
“AIML is a world-class research facility and the MIT bigdata Living Lab, which is one of only three labs outside the United States, offers a global collaboration between MIT, government and business within Adelaide,” Mr Papps said.
“MTX is excited to partner with these, and other research initiatives, that enable safe and secure data analysis to identify growth opportunities and improve government decision-making and socio-economic outcomes.”
MTX will be based in Adelaide CBD and the company has started advertising for roles in South Australia. South Australian’s whose employment has been impacted by the COVID-19 health pandemic, as well as women returning to the workforce, will have the opportunity to apply following today’s announcement.
