Working for Playing in Puddles:

  • We’re SUPER Family Friendly – we believe in rolling our sleeves up and smashing out brilliant work within a shorter day so we all have more time with our families. This means flexible start and finish times for stress-free drop-offs and pickups. We totally understand that kids get sick and that you want to attend special school days (because we do too), so we’re flexible with work days. So long as the work gets done within the time-frame we’re happy.
  • As a fast-growing start-up and small business owner I love to hire awesome people who have a real entrepreneurial spirit, can-do attitude and do what it takes to get the job done.
  • Playing in Puddles is a fast-growing start-up run and operated by its founder in Erina and a very small team of freelancers who work remotely.
