What’s life like at Kester Black?

We’re a small and nimble team focused on learning, optimising and action without sacrificing quality or experience for customers.

Everyone is expected to take responsibility, deliver and raise any concerns or blockers they have. We are high performance in our products and in the way we work.

We work closely together as we’re a small team - spread across a few locations - so collaborate and connect using digital tools. We are fully aware of balance in life, connecting with nature and making time for ourselves, but are fully aware that sometimes we have to work a little bit more - for a major launch or campaign - but we always make up for it with rest.

Learning happens at Kester Black daily, with new strategies, ideas and experience coming from various sources. Once we’ve nailed something and got a rhythm, we’ll be looking for ways to improve or do something completely new - this pushes all of us to learn. If specific training or knowledge is required we will invest in external training or bring in a consultant or coach who can level us up quickly.

Application Task

Send a short video (max 3 minutes) where you directly talk to us so we can get to know you, why you think beauty needs to be changed and what about Kester Black do you love? Be creative or low-fi, whatever you think helps us get to know you best. (Please include your name and email address in the message so we can clearly connect it to your application, and send it within 4 hrs of applying.)

What’s the deal?

  • This role is full-time and based in Melbourne
  • We mostly work remote but will cowork regularly at our Melbourne office
  • The salary range $70-100k based on expertise and capability you bring
