  • Full time role
  • Salary: $70 000 - $75 000 per annum (commensurate with experience) plus superannuation
  • Location: North Melbourne

Animals Australia works tirelessly to protect the most abused and defenceless animals in our society. Our award winning national campaigns and unique investigative work have awakened millions to the cruel practices of factory farming and live animal export, while pressuring industry and government to take much needed action. Each victory for animals is underpinned by a strong and proactive supporter base

The Role

Animals Australia is looking for a Front End Developer to join our dynamic and innovative digital team.  The Front End Developer plays a critical role in the execution of Animals Australia’s front-end web projects, working with a team of designers and developers to deploy cutting-edge digital campaigns to end animal cruelty.

Skills Required

Working with a highly skilled web team, your role as Front End Developer is to successfully bridge the gap between graphic design and technical implementation.  You excel in your attention to detail and you are the master at executing engaging and visually appealing web pages or interfaces based on supplied designs with near pixel-perfect execution. HTML, CSS, Javascript and jQuery are just a few of the well used tools in your engineering toolkit!

But all that aside, it is your ability to demonstrate your understanding and commitment to the objectives and values of Animals Australia that will see you being successful in this role.

If you want to add your skills to our team, and speak up for the voiceless, then we'd love to hear from you.

Aside from the opportunity to bring about real change for animals, we offer:

  • A fun, but hard working environment

At Animals Australia, we pride ourselves on the fact that we are recognised as Australia's foremost national animal protection organisation.  Backed by a dedicated and responsive supporter base, our small, diverse and busy team works tirelessly to create a kinder world for animals. Our unprecedented track record in investigating and exposing animal cruelty, teamed with our ability to conduct world-first strategic public awareness campaigns, is a role we take very seriously.

Focusing on community engagement and transparency, our role is that of an educator, a lobbyist and a leader.  Fusing creativity with research and communication, we seek to inform and empower individuals to take action and to make compassionate choices for animals, everyday.  We firmly believe that our treatment of animals reflects who we are as individuals and as a society.

What we offer:
Aside from the opportunity to bring about real change for animals, we offer:

  • A fun, but hard working environment
  • Flexibility in work hours
  • Discounted private health care membership
  • Employee Assistance Program
  • Companion Animal Compassionate Leave
  • Fantastic office location

What you offer:
You are high in energy, committed and passionate about making a difference — a real difference. Working to bring about real change for animals is a role you take very seriously, but you also enjoy a good laugh and like to have fun.  You know your stuff and you are good at it, and whilst you can run with a project or task on your own, you relish a team environment where ideas are encouraged and debated. Pragmatic and resilient, you never, ever, ever give up...even when the odds are stacked against you.
