About Us

Our company background

Compass was built and launched in 2010 as a true software-as-a-service solution for schools. Compass is distributed by JDLF International Pty Ltd with offices in Victoria and San Francisco. Compass is the emerging leader in online school and student management in Australia, providing schools with immediate, on-demand access to a student performance, wellbeing and much more. In late 2010, we launched CompassPay, our merchant services division focused on incorporating streamline payment options to parents and students.

In November 2014 JDLF International Pty Ltd moved head offices to 74 Doncaster Road, Balwyn North, which was opened by the Hon. David Hodgett, Minister for Major Projects, Manufacturing and Ports. As part of this relocation, we took the opportunity to rename our organisation to Compass Education. This name change was made to reflect the focus of our organisation in alignment with our product.

Our company culture

Here at Compass Education we are a group of smart, enthusiastic and dedicated people. We all share common goals and visions for the company but each person brings their unique skills and viewpoints to the business. Our open start-up culture and offices is something we are proud of and strive to maintain.

It is a constantly evolving workplace where everyone is free to share ideas and opinions and we have worked hard to ensure our office environment reflects these values and provides an inspiring place to work. No matter the issue, big or small, we are always willing to help.
