Careers at SkoolBag

Meet SkoolBag

SkoolBag was founded in 2012 in Newcastle NSW by a father who was sick and tired of school notes hiding amongst his son’s mouldy sandwiches at the bottom of his school bag (that’s if his son even remembered to bring the note home in the first place).

SkoolBag has since become Australia’s leading school communication platform.

In 2016 MOQ Limited (ASX Listed) acquired SkoolBag and its growing user base with just under one million users.

Not only does SkoolBag count some of Australia’s largest private schools as customers, their complementary product SportsBag was selected by the Australian Olympic Committee for all communication needs between athletes and delegates at the RIO Summer Olympics & Winter Olympics.
