  • You will work with a variety of clients and won’t get burnt out
  • You will love working here!

This is a full-time position. If this sounds like your new job please email careers@monkii.com.au with:

Sound like you? Great! Do you have a dog? Bring them in too! We’ve got a couple, as well as a killer espresso machine, pool table, and all the accoutrements you’d expect from a digital agency. Most importantly, we believe in going home on time and not working our employees to death. This isn’t a typical ad-land studio, and maintaining a healthy work/life balance for our staff is important to us.
