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 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.
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.
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.
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.
