Join our team

.id is always on the lookout for good people with skills in any of the following areas: demographic analysis, forecasting, spatial analysis, geography and urban planning, software development, client management and sales.

Wondering what it’s like to work at .id?

Lailani was interviewed recently on the Cogent podcast and discussed the changes we’ve made over the last few years to help our people get their ideas out in the world. You can listen to that chat here.

Culture and values

Why are we in business?

  • To create a business where we enjoy working
  • To implement and be rewarded for our ideas
  • To inform decision making
  • To influence the good society
  • To be proud of what we are doing
  • To make a living
  • To have fun

What do we value?

Being excellent at your job

Simply put, we want you to be highly accomplished at your core responsibilities.

Owning the culture

Our culture is not the preserve or responsibility of ‘management’ – it is everyone’s responsibility to protect and nurture what makes .id a great place to work.

Extending your role and adding value

We thrive on implementing new ideas. These come from our people, so we value people who go beyond their everyday responsibilities to contribute their ideas.

Sharing your knowledge and being a mentor

Collaboration and teamwork is central to .id’s continuing success. Wherever possible you should seek to share your knowledge and help others grow in their roles.

Acknowledging and developing your leadership qualities

.id truly believes in the power of shared (rather than exclusive) leadership. This is something we actively seek to foster in our people.

Perks and benefits

A great office

Located just off Smith St, our Collingwood warehouse conversion has plenty of space for bikes (and lockers and showers for cyclists!)


We mean it. Need to work around family and other commitments? We’ll find a way to make it work.

Learning and development

.id is committed to the development of our people. You know best how you like to learn, so we have simple rules for individuals or teams to source and book L&D. And no arbitrary budget caps.

Tools of the trade

We want you to have the best tools for you job. Teams know best what they need, so they decide what they get.

We’ve got you covered

From day one at .id, you’re covered by our income protection insurance.

Help yourself

Not in the mood to head to one of our nearby cafes? There’s always coffee (and tea) ready to go. Feel like a tipple after work? There are plenty of bars nearby, or just grab a beer or wine from the fridge or cupboard and join us on the deck.

Time out

The office shuts down between Christmas and New Year. You get paid, and it doesn’t come out of your annual leave. You can also purchase up to 4 weeks extra leave.

Paid parental leave

Anyone who’s been with us for 2 years and longer is eligible for 12 weeks at full pay.

Bonus scheme

Another one for the folk who’ve been with us at least 2 years: when we have a cash surplus, up to 10% will be allocated to employee bonus payments.
