About Edrolo

Edrolo is here with a mission to improve education, and we’re looking for people equally passionate about making a difference in the world. We’re changing the game for secondary school students and teachers by not only reimagining and creating a new breed of core educational resources, but overhauling how educational content is created in the first place. 1200 schools across Australia – including 95% of schools in Victoria – turn to Edrolo daily. Our team of 180+ mission-aligned rockstar Edrollers are just getting started. In 2022, we are expanding our catalogue to include more subjects and products, and we’re looking for graphic designers to work with us to assist with typesetting our 2022 textbook releases with quality design, layout, and illustration skills.

About the role

We’re looking for individuals based in Victoria to join us in a full time capacity until the end of November.

As part of a product team you will collaborate closely with designers and content authors to help to deliver a specialised textbook that integrates with our digital resources. The role involves executing layout and typesetting of content according to template stylesheets and specifications, digital illustration, prepress preparation, and peer review quality assurance. You will be expected to autonomously pick up and complete work, and keep relevant production spreadsheet data up to date.
