About Us

Jobaroo is a one-stop-shop for backpackers heading ‘down under’.


Being a backpacker in Australia is an incredible opportunity but as with any new country it can be a challenge.

Finding employment, getting visas, and settling into a new country can be daunting at time, along with little known money issues like tax returns, money transfers and setting up your bank accounts.

At Jobaroo, we understand these hurdles and are here to guide you every step of the way to make your time as awesome as is it possibly can be.

Our Mission

Jobaroo enables cultural exchange by supporting backpackers in Australia to maximise their opportunities and adventures while assisting local employers in sustaining and growing their businesses.

Jobaroo connects international travelers with meaningful employment and experiences which positively impacts communities.

Who are we

We love the opportunity work and travel brings to individuals and believe Australia is one of the best places to do it. 

We believe the journey is more important than the destination and our goal is to help backpackers to find their paths.

We do this through excellent down-to-earth information and employment.

Meet our Founder

Quinn Askeland with a backpacker in Outback

Quinn, the founder of Jobaroo, explored the world extensively before launching this website. Previously a recruitment consultant in the UK, he moved to Sydney to help backpackers explore the world through work and travel.

During his travels, Quinn recognized a lack of useful, unbiased advice and suitable job opportunities for backpackers in Australia. He also noticed that many backpackers arrive in Australia only to miss out on the biggest adventure they could take by living the life of their dreams.

At Jobaroo, we bridge this gap by offering jobs and providing comprehensive resources so you can create your adventure.

As Saint Augustine said, “The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.”
