What occupies our geeky minds

Required – Digital Producer/Project Manager

Short URL 0 Comments

Do you like to organise? “Everything has its place”, you say.

But do you really like to organise. Do you, for example, enjoy making lists before you go on holiday, you know, in case you forget something? Whilst on ‘holiday’ do you have a budget of $37 per day, yet still manage to come home with change and a souvenir for mum?

You do? Well that’s a start but it certainly isn’t the end. You’ll need to be fluent in Klingon, well perhaps not, but it would be useful if you at least knew what Objective C and Java were and you’ll definitely score points with our engineers if you know your Python from your Ruby.

Are you still with us?

You are. Great. So it would appear that you have early signs of OCD and you’re not afraid to nerd it up with the best of them. Believe it or not you could be exactly what we’re looking for.

To make our shortlist you’ll need to have some experience as a ‘Project Manager’ or ‘Digital Producer’. You should be interested in advancing your career.  You’re not ready for that cushy job just yet. You’ll have a nose for problems and can smell an approaching issue a mile away. You also like to solve and you’ll pick up the phone (remember those) and speak to whoever needs speaking to in order to get things done. You don’t bury issues, instead you like to unearth them, chop them into even shaped logs, light a fire and use them to cook the stew that nourishes your team whilst they deliver you a successful project.

And what do we expect from you?

Well, you’ll need to roll up your sleeves, great digital producers always do*. You’ll be at the coal face when requirements are gathered, you’ll muck in on user-story development and you’ll enjoy busting out wire-frames. You understand that this ground work will repay you when the project is underway and deadlines are fast approaching.

But what’s in it for you? Well there’s a competitive salary, a nice bunch of people to hang out with and people tell us we have a pretty cool (and positive) working environment. More importantly there’s an opportunity to work in a fast growing business at the leading edge of mobile applications. Located at The Old Swan Brewery, we’re a pretty easy commute whether that’s by car, bus, bike or kayak. Parking is a cinch and you may even witness a dolphin or two walking back to the car which, will of course, balance your zen and make you a more enlightened individual.

So if this, for some reason, feels like an opportunity worth exploring further then please attach a resume and say hello@adapptor.com.au. It goes without saying that all correspondence will be handled in the strictest confidence.

[*We believe experienced producers are like conductors because they bring all the elements of the performance together, the programmers, the interface designers, the client and the budget. And just like conductors, they achieve this by waving their arms around wildly until they get what they want, or at least that's what they'll have you believe. The reality is they always had it under control, the arm waving was just for show.]
