Setting the scene
One sunny afternoon, not long ago, if you had poked your head past the roller door at the Wine Gallery HQ, you would have found us all sitting around our internal wine bar (read communal desks) celebrating!
It had a been a great month. We had launched the new platform in late 2016. Our organic customer traction had started to pick up nicely. And on top of that, we had managed to score the award for best new Australian E-Commerce Startup. So morale was high. But at the same time, we knew that this was just a good start. And our minds quickly shifted to the list of ideas we wanted to do next.
And that's about the time we realised that our grand ambitions were being stifled by a few key skill gaps. You see, Banjo (Chief Wine Officer) had the wine skills down pat. Humberto (Chief of Technical Stuff) had the coding skills. Tom (Chief of Everything Else) had some finance skills. And Luis...Well, let's just say Luis can pack a mean box of wine.
One of the things our motley wine crew was sorely missing was a visual content creator. We needed someone that could take all our images, photo and video ideas and make them a reality. We are really good at mood boards, web clipping, saving posts and swipe files but we lack the necessary skills to turn our ideas into a reality. But what we need today is someone to take on the challenge of creating a lot of gorgeous visual works of art on a day-to-day basis! (Sounds challenging right? ...but we believe in you ;)
Who we're looking for?
We need someone that has an abundance of creativity and vision, that can:
- Create stunning images for our website, social media, and marketing needs;
- Take on the role of social media imagery guru / internal instagram star;
- Create captivating brand and wine-related videos. Such as interviews with makers, stopmotion unboxing, how-to guides relating to wine etc. etc. and much more;
- Be in charge of creating shareable content from our upcoming, sure to be amazing, wine events;
- Bonus points if you can help with our graphic design needs; and
- Do all this with very limited budget. Our budget will be spent on your salary ;)
And you'll need the experience to match.
We're looking for someone who can take all this onboard while we're small but also someone who would be interesting in growing with our business in the long term as we continue our rapid ascent. Someone who is able to take things from A, all the way to Z without getting stuck, filling any gaps in their skillset through their network and know how.
More importantly, you'll be someone with a growth mindset and grit, who can work hard and handle long hours when needed. And teach themselves what they need to know. This isn't a 9-5 position... Expect to be pushed! You'll need you to be the type that can handle ambiguity and multiple things competing for your attention.
It would definitely help if you had an interest in taking what we think can be an intimidating, or at least confusing product (wine) and communicating inviting and approachable visual content around it and all things related.
Lastly, you'll always be pushing and challenging the rest of the team and the status quo with your opinions and ideas. Well thought out of course ;)
So if you're the type that has a weakness for the odd bottle of delicious wine and you were reading the above and thought: 'Damn! That's me,' and you've got the skill set to match, then let's pause for a second, while we tell you a little bit about us, so you can decide if we're the right fit for you.
Who we are...
We are a Sydney based, early stage wine startup with the mission to take the intimidation and confusion out of learning, exploring and most importantly drinking delicious bottles of wine. We are building a wine brand that is simultaneously remarkable yet inclusive, and it’s our mission to provide our customers with access to a world of wine that may just have been a little beyond their comfort zone.
We like to think of ourselves as providing monthly wine adventures, customised to each member's unique tastes, delivered to their door. Where they can learn as much (or as little) about their wines each month as they like. We're about two years old, and we've just started to hit our stride. If this sounds good so far? Great! Keep reading...
So what's in it for you?
You can expect to play a massive role in growing what we're building. We've got grand ambitions for where we want to take this baby, and you're going to play a huge part in getting us there. You'll be the head of your own little visual content empire (aka you) with a lot of autonomy, so self-drive is a must. But you can also expect a lot of support from the rest of the team.
You can expect to work hard, but productively, with a focus on results, not face time. You'll be moving quickly and facing new challenges every day. We're constantly testing and experimenting, so mistakes are going to happen. But we're cool with that because we're constantly learning and improving as we go.
Comp is negotiable for the right person, with employee share options in the company a definite possibility. And of course, there's a free wine subscription with your name on it!
'Okay. You've got me. What do I have to do?'
You're a grown up. You know how this works (well at least we hope you're a grown-up). Please let us know why you'd be an awesome addition to the team at: firstname.lastname@example.org
And that's the whole burrito. If you've read this far, you must really be interested! And we're excited to hear from you.
