What's it like to work at Jumbla?
We often get asked what it’s like to work at Jumbla and it can be hard to know where to start.
Between trying to describe our ridiculously cool office, the constant stream of high calibre, exciting clients we work on or even just the laid-back, chilled out environment we work in everyday — it can be hard to sum it all up sometimes.
So to make things easy we thought we’d try lay it all out to give everyone a bit of an idea of how we do it here at Jumbla.
Probably the easiest place to start is simply the space we work in. Our studio is all about being relaxed, fun and creative. It’s kind of like working from home, except you’ve actually bothered to hang all your cool artwork and get a bunch of indoor plants to make it look pretty. Here, you get to work with your mates everyday, and there’s free coffee, beer and fruit!
From the moment you walk in you know this isn’t your standard work space. The music will be the first giveaway here, we’ve got trusty old Spotify pumping out a carefully curated selection of tunes all day because, you know, printers, mouse clicks and keyboards sound pretty boring.
We all work in the same open space, have lunch together everyday and make regular use of the BBQ. Other notable features include our outdoor courtyard, fishpond, dartboard and mini basketball hoop.
And then there’s the table tennis table. Standing as the proud centrepiece of the office, this gets daily use. From friendly hit ups to intense one-on-one showdowns and even the occasional all-in ‘around the world’ challenge, we really find it’s the perfect way to break up the day and clear your mind.
Next to the table is our beloved Playstation, because we’ve also found that shooting the crap out of each other in Call Of Duty is another pretty effective mind-clearer.
Believe it or not, this is where the real fun lies. It’s not enough to just love where you work, you’ve got to love what you do — which makes us a lucky bunch.
Working with motion graphics and animation to tell visual stories is naturally pretty exciting, but it wouldn’t be half the fun if it weren’t for the highly creative, top tier projects we work on everyday.
We’re constantly mixing it up as we do work for a huge range of advertising agencies, production houses and even direct clients. Feel free to browse over our full client list, but think Coca Cola, Ogilvy, BMW, McCann, MTV, Toyota and Leo Burnett to name a few.
Jumbla is more than a place of employment: it’s a place where creativity and passion bounce off the walls. It’s where the talent, diversity and potential of each person is recognised and fostered – and, importantly, it’s a place where we enjoy ourselves!
Social activities are always big on the agenda. Each month the team is shouted a fun and memorable group outing. Past activities have included a night at Luna Park, afternoons at the beach, wine and cheese nights, the Comedy Festival, an RnB club night… even lawn bowls!
One of the best things about working at Jumbla is banding together to tackle projects proudly and passionately with people you regard as friends – not just colleagues. Once a year, we take this enthusiasm outside the world of design and animation, with everyone designated one day purely to volunteering!
In small teams of four or five, animators will hang up their pen tablets for a day to support a charitable cause of their choosing. This can be anything from gardening or cooking at care facilities, to feeding animals at welfare shelters.
We believe in supporting each other and celebrating occasions where we’ve gone above and beyond for our clients. So, each month we award shout outs, with prizes such as gift vouchers and movie tickets (the winner of the annual shout out award last year took home an iPad!).
Animation is an industry that is constantly advancing and evolving. Key to our working culture is making sure the whole team is up to date on the very latest, so we can put the most innovative techniques to practice and really “wow” our clients. To make this happen, we hold monthly catch-ups and regular team workshops. These give us a chance to have a proper look at each other’s work, to learn what techniques were used during recent projects and how problems were solved. Jumbla appreciates that this is an industry in which one never stops learning.
It’s also an industry that each of us believes in. We have strong faith in animation and motion graphics as globally-advancing fields of design, and we also have strong faith in the quality of Australian creative talent. We want to bring more of it into our supportive studio environment so that we can create our strongest work, collectively.
All in all, working at Jumbla means contributing to quality top-tier projects, rapidly developing your technical abilities and hanging out with some awesome creatives!
