About Josephmark

A better future happens by design – and at Josephmark, 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 Talent Acquisition Lead, your mission will be to find values-aligned, world-class talent and bring them aboard the good ship JM. We're growing, and you'll lead the charge in building out our team of exceptional humans across tech, design, product and strategy. You'll develop, own and deliver Josephmark’s recruitment and employer brand strategy, scaling our existing recruitment processes to be market-leading and support our next phase of growth.

In this role you will:

  • Manage end-to-end recruitment for JM and our partner ventures
  • Provide best practice recruitment partnering and coaching support to hiring managers
  • Proactively build diverse sourcing strategies with a strong focus on direct sourcing and leveraging proactive recruitment channels/existing relationships
  • Establish and continue to build a strong candidate pipeline that we can draw on for immediate and future hires
  • Curate a candidate experience and recruitment process reflective of our values-based and inclusive culture

You should have:

  • Extensive experience (5+ years) in end-to-end talent acquisition ideally in an internal and external agency environment
  • Strong understanding of the design and tech market, with networks across various talent areas, and experience in building trusted relationships with great people
  • Past success in direct sourcing strategies and talent pipeline management
  • A natural ability for verbal storytelling, with excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • A highly proactive style and a hands-on approach

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!
