  • Time tracking: Our business relies on billing for the time you spend, so each team member is responsible for ensuring time logs are up to date.


  • Staff have a high degree of autonomy to self manage their output by defining their working hours and office location.
  • Many of our staff are already parents or are planning their own families, so we have comprehensive approaches for parental leave and flexibility around structuring roles to accommodate individual family circumstances.

  • Staff with more than 5 years tenure are eligible for a month of Early Long Service Leave.

  • Up to 20% of your paid hours can be directed to open source code contribution or other community related activities. 
  • All staff receive an allowance to buy your own equipment under a salary sacrifice model. This means that everyone works on their preferred computer spec and can deck out their home offices with great furniture and accessories.
  • Your ongoing health is of paramount importance to us and everyone receives an annual allowance to help pay for gym or sport team memberships, yoga classes and other wellbeing programs of their choice.
