Digital Designer - Part Time

Are you looking to be part of a great team who value collaboration? Do you want to truly contribute to your workplace culture?

Boost is well known for our close collaboration and transparency with our amazing clients, ensuring we meet their needs. We occupy a sunny, open-plan office in the heart of Wellington which supports our Web and Mobile design and development, and Agile Coaching.

We are currently on the lookout for a part-time designer to join our growing team. At Boost we pride ourselves on creating a high-trust environment that fosters a lot of freedom and flexibility at work. Don’t worry though, you won’t be alone, you’ll be mentored by our experienced designers while also being encouraged to share your own knowledge and experiences. We are accountable as a team not the individual.

We believe a company is defined by the work they turn down. While we are more selective about the work we choose to accept, we believe our projects to be not only interesting, but provide a positive impact to people's lives in New Zealand. In our time at Boost we have been challenged to add genuine value to sites and apps for the likes of Ministry of Social Development, Life Education Trust, Archives New Zealand, National Library, AnyQuestions, and Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision.
