Hello, we’re Impero.


We’re an independent, award-winning, creative agency that’s sole purpose is to make tired
brands famous again.


We’re multi-disciplined but our hearts lie in digital. We work with high profile brands such as
Havana Club, Beefeater Gin, Ugg, Lindt Chocolate, Nature Valley, 7Up and a bunch of others.


Right now, there’s about 33 of us (not including the dogs) — but that number grows all the time
because we’re still young, ambitious and pretty good at what we do.


We’d love to meet people who want to be part of and help drive that growth.


The role:


Mid-weight Designers are one of the most reliable designers in the team. You should have a
great understanding of the agency’s system, an ability to take on all design tasks, assist or even
lead projects independently. Middleweights should be organised and show initiative. You
should support senior team members but also be able to step up and take over any of their
projects if it’s required of them. You will have a hand in most of the projects we work on,
whether it’s character creation, content animation or simply bringing our work to life.
Middleweights should have sound technical skills, a clear understanding of digital and design
trends and an ability to apply different styles across brands. You should have a good
understanding of visual design and typography, and be able to contribute to concept sessions
as well as sell in their ideas clearly.
Most importantly, you must have the same drive as the rest of our team to push Impero to
continue to make award winning work. You must be talented, ambitious and driven.


Your goals for year one:


• Work on two projects that win accolades.
• Be involved in two pitch wins.
• Learn one new design-related skill.
• Receive 90% positive feedback on your 360° peer review.


The type of people we want to meet:


If you live and breath digital and design, we want to meet you. But above all, you must embody
our core values and fit within our culture. We want to meet you if you...


• ... have any of the following experience: 3+ years.
• ... love animation and turning everything you touch into movement.
• ... have amazing digital visual design skills and a thousand unique styles and ideas tucked away.
• ... enjoy being challenged by a versatile range of creative work.
• ... have a strong understanding of design trends and how to harness them.
• ... have good communication and presentation skills in selling your ideas within your team.
• ... are able to problem solve and bring solutions to the table.
• ... are proactive and committed to developing your own knowledge and skills.
• ... are unafraid to roll up your sleeves and muck in.
• ... are organised and self-disciplined, with an ability to multi-task and consistently hit deadlines.
• ... are driven, motivated and have meticulous attention to detail.
• ... have a can do attitude and a bit of the ol’ entrepreneurial spirit.


The perks of working at The Mighty Impero include:


• To be part of something special — this is an exciting growing agency with no board of directors, or shareholders to report to.
• The ability to stamp your mark on an organisation – and not just be a cog in the machine.
• Free snacks and coffee
• Monthly breakfasts with the whole team.
• Seasonal company parties.
• Annual personal development plan and training budget for your own growth.
• The love of five rotating office dogs.
• A ‘yes work’s important, but let’s not get too serious’ vibe.
• A distinct lack of bureaucracy or politics.
• Ownership over your own projects whilst enjoying an inclusive environment.
• Beer. Wine. Rum. Whiskey. Chocolate. (Working with our clients has added
perks).
