PRODUCT DESIGNER- SYDNEY/MELBOURNE

About You

At Kablamo, “We Make with Heart and Mind”. You are a maker. You love to bring together amazing people and technology to deliver exceptional outcomes. You are not faint hearted. In fact, you thrive in the face of challenge. You work hard but not so hard that you forget to celebrate success. You are a leader who rolls up your sleeves and leads by example. You hold your team accountable for high performance and you deliver the same in return. You believe in servant leadership.

As a team leader you are humble and selfless, but you are not afraid to have your opinion heard. When faced with ambiguity and complexity, you guide teams to find a path forward and to create solutions. You like exploring ideas and iterating on the path to success. You are a champion of change.

As a craftsperson, you are organized and reliable. You love process, but not just for process sake. You understand the benefits of routine and stability and go out of your way to ensure your teams are able to go about their work without petty interruption.

From a career perspective, you have a demonstrated track record of delivering complex technical projects on time and within budget using agile methodologies.
