About the culture of Drawboard:

Drawboard is a small and international team working mainly from our Melbourne (CBD) office.

We are a bunch of individuals that care about the products we make and the impact the products have on our users.

People here love working together and are always open to step outside of their role to help each other. It’s an honest, stress free, flexible and egoless environment where everyone can be themselves and where everyone is open to new ideas.

We value life and work balance with ‘Work From Home Wednesday’s’, along with flexible working hours.

During this COVID-19 situation, we are all mostly working from home, and look forward to returning to the Queen Street office post-pandemic with some modifications we learned while working from home.
