Our Culture

Our company culture is fun and energetic, yet also relaxed and supportive. We’re a small, tight-knit team and whilst we take our client’s results very seriously we don’t take ourselves too seriously. We reckon life is too short to be stressed out and we love being a little silly and irreverent sometimes… ok, maybe more than just sometimes hehe We appreciate that our clients help us pay our bills and put food on our tables and we pride ourselves on over-delivering for them. However, we also value our own happiness and sanity above any deadline or profit margin.

Finer Details / Serious stuff:

  • There is no set salary or urgent start date. Our director Dave is overseas until mid-July so at this stage we’re simply wanting to “put the feelers out there”, start having some conversations and give ourselves some time to find our perfect new teammate. Likely start date will probably be August or September so there is no rush from our end.
  • We’re very open to engagement and remuneration options. If you’re chasing a 6 figure city agency salary, then we’re probably not a fit for you at this stage. We’re still a very young agency (we turned 2 in May!) so there’s definitely still lots of ways for us to improve and grow. We’re looking for somebody with leadership skills who wants to be a part of growing our business for the long term. Somebody who can take some responsibility for the growth and success of the business. For the right person, there is even a potential to get “skin in the game” and become a partner in the business.
  • Strictly no recruiters or overseas applicants please (we cannot sponsor), only shortlisted candidates will be accepted.
  • Your application will be ignored if you do not submit a video application.

Job Type: Full-time

Required experience:

  • SEO: 3 years
  • Digital Marketing: 3 years

Thanks for your time attention! 🙂


  • Forget professionally - we want to know what you value most in life 🙂
