Careers

We're looking for You

We’re always on the look out for talent with a “Get Shit Done” attitude. Some of the benefits our team members enjoy are:

  • MacBooks – Everybody gets a MacBook once they become permanent because you need the right tools for the job. 
  • Good Coffee and Water – life is too short for Ricoffy and tap water.
  • Career Development – everyone wants to know where they are going and what opportunity they have and that’s why we take career planning seriously. Whether it’s a paid course/degree or one of our informal training sessions, we believe that the best can only be achieved by constantly improving.
  • Friday Happy Hour – The end of the week just got better by enjoying a cold beer/cider/drink on a Friday afternoon while you wrap up your work.
  • Pay Day Pizza – Nothing better than pizza take aways! Or Pies. We like to spoil the guys at the end of the month with an unhealthy lunch.
  • Cool Offices and Work Environment – we don’t cut corners when creating an awesome space to work in and one that we are proud to call our home.
  • Merch – If both Steve Jobs and Barack Obama didn’t waste brain power deciding what to wear neither should you. Whether it’s caps, hoodies, shirts or peaks we give you as much merch on the house as we can and subsidise if you need more.
  • Office Library – whether it’s business or personal, we believe in life-long learning, especially in our industry! We have a range of books in our office library for our team to read. If we don’t have it, recommend it and we will see if we can get it.
