About Josephmark

At Josephmark, we believe a better future happens by design. We are a venture studio, specialising in design, digital product, and venture strategy. We partner with passionate people and like minded companies to envision a better way to work, live, and play – whether that’s bringing a pre-seed startup from 0 to seed through our VaaS model, breathing new life into legacy brand identities, or crafting new digital products and brands that propel the world forward.

About the Team

JM is made up of designers, developers, strategists, writers, storytellers, shapers, and technologists. We are a mission-driven team looking to build the future we want to see. Our studios work collaboratively across Australia (Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast) and Los Angeles.

Where could you fit in?

As Digital Producer, your mission will be to deliver high quality, profitable digital projects on time. You’re motivated by the art and science of bringing order to complex systems. You know what a technical project needs to succeed, your waterfall from your agile (and when to use them), but more importantly, what the team needs in order to deliver quality, profitable work on time… and on scope. A bona fide problem-solver, you’re naturally commercially minded and outcomes-focused – you’re always looking for ways to improve how we do things. You can confidently manage design and technical projects from the very beginning: estimating, budgeting and setting up projects, right through to delivery. You do all of this with cool, calm, collectedness – because you know that you can catch more flies with honey than you do with vinegar.

In this role you will:

  • Hit or exceed profitability, quality, satisfaction and deadline targets across all projects
  • Manage and resource multiple concurrent projects
  • Manage stakeholders expectations and comms
  • Help to create and maintain the JM Delivery Playbook
  • Work collaboratively with team members and freelancers to solve creative and logistical challenges
  • Build and maintain trusted relationships and motivate your team to succeed
  • Facilitate meetings and workshops

You should have:

  • 4+ years experience as a digital producer/project manager with good knowledge of agile methodology
  • strong understanding of digital product design and development life cycles
  • tech-savvy and resourcefulness
  • the ability to work effectively with technical and non-technical stakeholders
  • impeccable organisation skills and attention to detail

What’s in it for you?

Equity: We believe in the ventures we work on so much that we invest in them ourselves. Ultimately, we want our legacy to be a portfolio of ventures that make the world a better place. As a JM employee, you have the opportunity to think and act like an investor by participating in our unique equity scheme, JM Tokens. The hours you work are tallied into tokens that you can invest into our ever-expanding venture portfolio. In a liquidity event for a venture, your tokens will pay cash dividends (and your tokens remain yours for life).

Growth: We can promise that you'll be challenged and intellectually stretched by the projects you work on. In an industry filled with shifts and changes, the sky’s the limit for your career progression – and we offer generous personal and professional development grants to help get you there.

Balance: We know you have a rich personal life outside of work (and at JM we love hearing about and celebrating your side hustles). We offer enhanced annual leave benefits, your birthday off, gender-equal paid parental leave and fully flexible working.

A sense of purpose: Every project we work on is heavily vetted to ensure it’s aligned with our mission and values. Unlike many other business models, we don't say yes to every brief that comes through the door. You’re guaranteed to work on world-class products, brand new startups, and your very own ideas to create a better future by design.

Belonging: At JM, we know better products start with diverse teams. We are an inclusive workplace committed to fostering a sense of thriving and belonging for all. That's why we strongly (see bold and underline usage) encourage members of underrepresented communities to apply. If you share our values and our venture mindset, you’ll find a home (with your work bffs) at Josephmark.

Fun: We host events, retreats and field trips on the reg both URL and IRL (when it's COVID safe).

P.S. If you’re reading this and thinking, “Oh no, I only tick a few of those boxes so I’m not going to apply...”, don’t be silly. If you’re a standout human, we want to hear from you!

Emily Devers, Digital Producer

What’s the most interesting thing you’ve worked on at JM? Everything! Being a Producer, I get to facilitate a range of projects at once. Right now I'm working with a team on the realisation of an app which transforms young people's relationship with devices by injection micro-learning moments into their screen time. This app is just the start - the potential for this kind of learning can be applied across so many industries beyond school! I've also recently worked on a platform build which links musicians to strategic partners for financial and product support as they tour and perform. This model will be an absolute game-changer, supporting our musicians with transparent and direct partnerships in a way the industry has never seen. Looking forward, I can't wait to do some opportunity mapping for a local clothing exchange, to see how JM can help them expand virtually.

How long have you been in the industry for? Here at JM, my role as a Producer is being informed by around 10 years of curation, facilitation and events management. Prior to JM, I've been floating around in the creative industries for just over a decade here in Brisbane, and public art has allowed me to travel globally as as a street artist. I'm a self taught designer, and have been honing my skills more recently in the last few years across a range of projects.

What’s the best thing about working at JM? Being surrounded by so many other industry pioneers and quality humans. Every day I get to jump on calls with Brisbane and LAs best designers, product leads, motion designers, developers, content specialists and more. I end up absorbing so much...what a treat! Also we have a lot of dog owners on our Bris team, so I love when they're all in the River Studio.

What’s the worst thing about working at JM? The COVID restrictions can be pretty rough, I thrive on being in the same room with our team and clients, so have been missing those in person workshops and meetings.

What’s something people might not know about the Delivery team at JM? We are the guardians of the company's, the project's and our team's health, which means our role is incredibly broad and spans across every disciplines.

What advice do you have for anyone looking for a career like yours? I ended up in the role because I'd spent a long time following my gut on art & design projects. I never quite fit into an agency model prior to JM, but here I'm celebrated for my diverse skillset, and desire to add value across multiple disciplines. If you want to end up in a facilitation role, follow the projects that put people, planet and community first, and you'll end up in the right spot :-)
