Meet Athena, the Home Loan Wrecker

Athena Home Loans is the game changing goddess of good stuff. We’re breaking what’s broken & in turn challenging the behaviour of an entire industry. If you think the client/agency model is outdated & want to be part of the decisions & influence creative change – this is the opportunity for you.

We are one of the country’s most innovative and awarded fintech startups and are rapidly growing. Therefore we’re looking for a highly conceptual superstar Digital Designer/Creative. This person is a “New Breed of Designer”: modern, in touch with technology, hungry and curious to break what’s broken, and extremely hands on. There is room to grow and further advance your career with fantastic leadership and mentors.

What we’d love to see:
Your experience must cover working with a team on websites, advertising campaigns, digital marketing, social assets and email design. Along with solid visual design skills, we need strong motion capabilities and a love for strategic design thinking. It’s about executing creative works. We love fresh ideas & would welcome someone with agency or in house experience inside or outside of financial services.

What makes you awesome:

  • You must be flexible, thrive on change and love a fast-paced working environment & be willing to give anything a crack.
  • You’re a vibrant person and that shows in your work.
  • Your attitude will be ‘no task is too small or too big’ but seen as a challenge to prove anything possible & apply new ways of thinking to your work.
  • Your 5 or so years’ industry experience will have given you sound knowledge of the usual Adobe software, as well as Sketch & Figma. All of which will be demonstrated in your folio/website of work.
  • You are curious, eager & love learning new skills from more senior creatives & marketing superstars.
  • You love being part of a collaborative environment where ideas can come from anywhere & new ideas will be valued everywhere.
  • Your energy, positive attitude and enthusiasm will be infectious.
  • You’re ambitious and brave enough to push boundaries and be challenged, and you won’t be afraid to challenge in return.

A day in the life will look life:

  • Collaborate with internal & external creative teams to deliver best in class digital marketing assets, social creative, email design, illustrations and landing page designs. Bonus points for video, content & motion experience.
  • Stay on top of & explore latest and emerging design best practices.
  • Apply & evolve brand guidelines, typography, photography & video content to create integrated creative assets.
  • Contribute to the continuous improvements of the agency’s design practices and processes.
  • Creative & visual concepting to elevate all our epic marketing campaigns

What can we offer you?
The opportunity to work with the fastest growing FinTech in Australia with a team of fast movers and shakers who want to change home loans for good. We believe in breaking what’s broken, leading with heart and moving with speed. We have a massive ambition. We’re not here to make up the numbers but fundamentally change the game.

You’ll be joining a superstar marketing team that was a finalist for B&T’s Marketing Team of the Year and is led by a CMO who was named Female FinTech Leader of the Year in 2021. You’ll be working closely with super talented people and will get invaluable experience that will be a great spring-board to your career.

This is seriously a fantastic opportunity. Show us what you’ve got & respond by telling us why you are a game-changing designer!
