Accounts Assistant
(Melbourne)

If you proudly alphabetise your sprice rack or colour code your bookshelf, we're guessing you're someone who likes to stay organised. Maybe the traits that make you highly organised manifest in different ways—we want to hear about them.

We’re seeking a driven individual with the capacity to grow with the role and become a lynchpin member of our team. We expect you to have some experience in similar accounts roles or you hold a relevant qualification and are hungry to learn (why not both?). There will be opportunities aplenty for the right candidate, particularly those with an interest in migrating their skills towards human resources and/or marketing.

You will be working closely with the management team to fulfil various accounting tasks. This role is part time with reasonably flexible hours. We are hybrid workplace so completing work from home (when it makes sense) is supported and encouraged. That said, there is a massive advantage gained from coming into our office. We expect the role to be 1-2 days per week.

There’s a lot of bookkeeper jobs being advertised at the moment. What makes this one different is you will be part of an award-winning team that is changing the world. We work together to build innovative marketing services and digital products—we take complex problems and turn them into smart, practical, and beautiful solutions.

We hope you’ll jump on board and join us on this adventure.

Looking for something full-time?
We understand some candidates applying for this role will actually be seeking a full time position. There will be an opportunity to expand this role to full-time over the next few years, provided you demonstrate self-sufficiency, initiative, and positively impact the team. We are also happy for it to remain part-time.

Internal Systems Administrator

A new opportunity has opened up within our team to be one of the custodians of our internal systems. You'll be ensuring the tech, gear, and software we use remains best practice, is well maintained, and delights our team and clients.

Imagine this – it’s Monday morning. You’re working from the office today and you have a smile on your face as you leave your home for the trip into work. You know that when you arrive, you’ll be spending the day tinkering with the latest in technology software, security, production kit, and computers. You’ll be sharing a beverage of your choice with team mates who are excited to tell you about a client launch that’s about to happen or a workshop that will be hosted later in the week. You love these conversations because you’re aware that you’ll be part of these events during the week. Whether it’s ensuring the workshop set up has all the remote facilities it needs or reinforcing some of our technology infrastructure for an upcoming launch – you feel connected in the team.

This is a highlight of what life is like as an Augie, and particularly what life could be like for you if you become our Internal Systems Administrator. We have done a lot of work over the last few years to establish a strong foundation in latest hardware, a standard operating system, and delighting our clients with technology that is seamless. If you’re someone who is always looking for ways to make this area of a business better, more effective, maybe even more automated…and you’d like to do that within a team that values belonging, effort, and play, then we’d love to hear from you.

DevOps Engineer

A rare opportunity has opened up (seriously, this one is rare) to work within our high performing technology-led team where your role is focused on maintaining and growing the latest in good infrastructure technology and practices - both for our clients and us.

No one at August has titles so this was was a tricky role to name! There are however, some titles you could attribute to this role that would make sense to someone outside August. These titles would sound like Hosting SysAdmin, Hosting Manager, Systems Administrator, DevOps Hosting…you get where we’re going?

You’ll become a custodian of our client hosting infrastructure and be able to deliver support that makes the Nights Watch look…a little tame. This role works predominantly with Hashistack in AWS. If you don’t have experience with that, don’t worry – we’re known for investing in our team and we’ll onboard you plus ensure you’re always supported. We’re a team after all.

When you’re working with the other developers and helping them out on code deploys, you’ll be working in your familiar environments of GitHub, BuildKite, and Docker. We love open source and expect that you do too if you’re reading this.

The August team is smart and nimble; working together to help our clients change and build innovative applications. We are committed to learning and sharing something new every day.

While we expect this to be a full time role, we’re always open to chatting about part time options.

DevOps Engineers work within our diverse team to ensure our infrastructure is top notch and our clients are receiving the best experience we can provide them. We are fixated on improving our clients’ outcomes. We expect that you’re someone who values this as well.

Senior Product Designer
(Melbourne)

Are you an experienced Product Designer looking for your next big career challenge? Be part of the foundation team launching our new product to market! You'll be working closely with a niche user base solving complex problems. This is a bold project with lots of room to grow and contribute.

We are excited to be launching a production management system made specifically for agencies and professional service firms that have adopted a hybrid agile methodology. This role provides you with the opportunity to work on sophisticated and complex problems – rather than designing individual product features, you’ll understand that owning the design process from the ground up is needed. More importantly, bringing people along and making it a team effort in that process is critical to the success of our work together.

No one works on anything alone when you’re an August team member. You’ll be expected to collaborate and contribute – for someone who thrives in this type of environment, you’ll be driven to add to the fabric of our strong culture and quality work through your commitment to learning and delivering.

Before we jump into more specifics of the role, it’s important we let you know about our hybrid way of working. We maintain flexible work practices and have done so since the company started in 2005. Hybrid working for us means that our Senior Product Design role is based in our Melbourne office and will work predominantly with our Australian and New Zealand team. However, you are not expected to work in the office or remote full time. Teams self-manage their face to face time and we also ensure that the company is up to date with all COVID-safe practices including vaccination requirements, cleaning, and physical distancing requirements.

The job in 55 words or less

  • Be part of the foundation team that successfully launches our product into market in 2022; it takes a village.
  • Collaborate with a smart, talented team of people who are committed to learning and sharing something new every day; no one works on anything alone.
  • Be a champion for the people using this product; actively listening to their feedback and gaining insights into how we can best serve them and make a product that truly improves their experience and business outcomes
  • Establish ways of working within the product team in your first few months that provides context and room for growth and scalability

Does this sound like you?

  • Proven experience designing software that tackles complex problems and is used by people; in other words, this isn’t your first product
  • Collaboration is a skill and a way of working that enables you to collect feedback, give feedback, and convert conversations into productive design discussions.
  • You are focused on human-centred design when it comes to solving product issues; product design is great, but if it’s not solving a person’s problem then it’s not helpful.
  • Excited by the opportunity to contribute to a senior and experienced team in developing ways of working, processes and feedback mechanisms.
  • You know the best practice tools of the trade and you use them everyday including (but not limited to) Figma, Principle, Sketch and more…
  • Can work autonomously but loves being part of a team and actively contributing to it

You get extra credit for

  • Experience with public speaking opportunities.
  • Formal facilitation and coaching qualifications.

You have a proven history of creative conceptualisation, typographic skills, and design craft. You understand solid design principles but you're not constrained by them.

Seeking feedback and gathering ideas from a range of perspectives is important to you. You’re just as capable on tools as you are comfortable with clients. You love leading design sprints and client workshops – because it’s the best way to get your head around the nitty-gritty of design problems.

  • Keep up-to-date with emerging, relevant technologies and trends

Does this sound like you?

  • Demonstrated experience in brand conceptualisation and execution
  • Proven experience with typography conventions and craft
  • Flexible, collaborative attitude: everyone can and does contribute ideas and creativity is a collective responsibility
  • Insatiable appetite for brand, digital interfaces and web technology trends
  • We expect you know how to use the latest design tools such as Figma, Principal etc.
  • Strong understanding of the constraints of the digital medium we work within.
  • Minimum seven or eight years working as part of a design team
  • We have had flexible working in place since August started 15 years ago; we expect you to be available to work on site and remotely

Senior PHP Engineer
(Melbourne)

We are looking for Senior Developers with robust principles and philosophies; not just killer code. You’re well established as a developer, you love working with WordPress, Drupal, and PHP, and you understand that your approach to owning and solving sophisticated problems—of all kinds—is just as critical as your code.

We are looking for rounded developers with experience working on WordPress websites within a LAMP stack environment. You have a solid understanding of the programming principles involved with such duties. We’re not looking for someone who would describe themself as a full stack developer.

Digital Marketing Director
(Melbourne)

If you think cross-channel marketing is how French winemakers sell champagne to Great Britain, and if you apply for jobs without reading the full advertisement, this might not be the role for you. However, if you're someone in a senior digital marketing role looking to collaborate on and execute marketing strategies for health, non-profit, and technology brands then this might be the role for you.

We’re looking for a person who can lead by example. You love digital marketing, creating real content, generating genuine growth, and analysing data for ingenious insights. You are keen to do all these things within an agency environment. You are someone who would rather paint a picture about numbers than simply email a spreadsheet. Someone who sees people and how they behave in the data. Someone who understands how search engines and social networks work but doesn’t blindly accept the status quo.

You’ll need to impress clients through engaging communication of your recommendations. There is an element of client education to this role. It’s about helping them understand the discipline better and learn how they can use it to improve their organisations. Identifying opportunities where we can create more value for clients is something we talk about and do every day. We expect you’ll be excited to join us in this adventure. Collaborating with the team happens from day one and we can’t wait to check out your monthly and quarterly metrics reports. You might not be a sporting nut, but you understand and can demonstrate what it’s like to coach a team so they can improve their skills and the quality of work we deliver.

The August team is smart and nimble; working together to build innovative projects, committed to learning and sharing something new every day. We hope you join us in this obsession.

The job in 55 words or less

  • Be part of and eventually lead a multidisciplinary team of digital marketing specialists and copywriters.
  • Devise and execute growth strategies across search, social and digital media.
  • Make our clients more competitive through better information architecture, content marketing strategies and performance measurement.
  • Work with our strategists, designers, developers and producers to improve the work we deliver.
  • Conduct competitive analysis and content research for our clients.

Does this sound like you?

  • You have at least six years' experience working in digital marketing.
  • You are in a senior digital marketing role - you may already have some leadership experience, but you're not wanting to step off tools.
  • You can write, and you enjoy it.
  • You have strong analytical and problem-solving skills.
  • You can simplify and visualise complicated data sets for clients and colleagues.
  • You have experience designing and managing PPC strategies and campaigns.
  • You regularly exhibit Google Analytics prowess, and know your way around Google Tag Manager.
  • Google Adwords certified.
  • You handle Excel like a maestro.
  • You have a thorough understanding of how web technologies, such as HTML, JavaScript and CSS, impact search.
  • You can talk confidently to clients and colleagues about the pros and cons of different optimisation tactics.
  • Flexible working is part of our DNA, but you are available to work onsite from our Melbourne office and remotely. 

You get extra credit for

  • Awareness of various social listening tools and resources.
  • Having worked in an agency environment.
  • An interest in teaching, and public speaking.
  • A demonstrable ability to write high-quality business documents, including project proposals, briefs and reports.
  • A track record of working with WordPress and/or Drupal.

We want you to stand out. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never done work experience before. Show us why you’re different and why we simply shouldn’t say “no” to you.

Things to consider when approaching us about work experience:

  • If you submit online, follow up with a phone call.
  • If at first you don’t succeed, it’s okay to try again at a later date.
  • Be brave and make contact yourself – don’t ask someone else to call on your behalf.
  • Research interview etiquette and tips – it could just help you stand out.

    Our offices are open-plan spaces that foster collaboration, communication, and plenty of laughs. You can also work from home when it suits you. From 2020, we've all worked from home due to COVID-19 restrictions - creating collaborative spaces online and still maintaining plenty of laughs!

  4. Interview Shoes A thorough interview process

    There’s a reason why our interview process is intense. We work hard to choose the right people.

  5. Tickets to events Events and conferences

    It’s important to us that you stay informed of what’s going on in your industry, so we’re here to help you develop those networks.

  6. Pizza and Beer No forced fun

    We’re friends as well as colleagues and like to hang out after hours. We often see a movie, do trivia, or just head to the pub for a cold one.

  7. Maggie and Suki Pooch-friendly zone

    Nine out of 10 doctors recommend pets for relaxation and stress-relief. We made that up, but Suki, the office dog, makes us smile.
