About The Natives
A small team packing a big punch, The Natives create brand-driven digital experiences for clients across Australasia for brand and eCommerce. 5 years young, we’ve got big plans for the next 5 years and we’re looking for a new digital native to join our team and help us smash them out of the park.

About the role
We’ve created the Digital Producer role to bring some central leadership into our small team, and we’re looking for someone confident to jump in the deep end and take the reins across multiple elements of the business. You’ll have plenty of room to leave your stamp on the role as you take complete ownership of production, website and eCommerce projects from start to finish.

Working alongside the Director, Design Lead and our Development Teams (both on and offshore), you’ll be confident to voice your ideas and push for the best possible outcomes – we don’t want a ‘yes’ person, we want a ‘get sh*t done’ person. You’ll bring great ideas to the table and have the confidence to back yourself in challenging the status quo. You’re not afraid to tackle any bumps in the road head on, and you can think on your feet to resolve issues tactically and tactfully.

Not only are you organised, you’re a stickler for detail and will have no problem delivering web projects within an allocated budget and timeframe – you’ll relish the challenge of delivering our signature standard of work across projects of varying sizes and budgets, and keeping all relevant stakeholders informed of updates along the way. Our processes are fairly fluid – part of the Digital Producer role will be sinking your teeth into improving internal systems and rolling these out across the team.

Being a small team, the role involves plenty of client-facing work so you’ll be confident to be a main point of contact on projects you’re running.

We’re keen to equip you the skills you need to succeed in the role, and we’re happy to fund industry professional development or upskilling you’re interested in to help you do it.

We’re on the doorstep of a huge growth period for The Natives, and we want to help you realise your full leadership potential as we scale our team.
