Department People Operations
Employment Type Full Time
Minimum Experience Experienced

We at 99designs are a passionate crew, united by the philosophy of putting people first, people helping people create their own success, having fun and being creative. You may be aware that we are scaling rapidly; it’s a really big deal and the hyper-growth is exciting! The appointment of the newly created Organisational Development Partner position will play a significant part in helping the global team scale while ensuring 99ers maintain their core values as a people first business.

A little bit about us

99designs is the world’s global creative platform that makes it easy for clients and designers to work together to create designs they love. Our mission is to champion creativity to create opportunities for people around the world. Founded in 2008, 99designs has grown from a small, online forum into a worldwide community of talented designers that is now the go-to solution for businesses, agencies, and individuals. 

So what’s the role about?

The Organisational Development Partner implements the processes and initiatives that set up 99ers globally to perform and thrive by delivering learning and leadership development, wellbeing, and belonging.

Reporting to the Organisational Development Manager (another newly created position), you will help make the 99d journey fun and enable 99ers to create their own success. More specifically, you will research, recommend, design, launch and facilitate people initiatives in close collaboration with the broader People Operations and leadership teams.


A little bit more about you

This role is perfectly suited to someone who is passionate about delivering key projects within our learning, leadership, wellbeing and D&I function, driving initiatives such as culture drivers, leadership development workshops, remote working processes, diversity and inclusion, and employee wellbeing initiatives. This is a newly created division in a fast growing, fast paced and changing environment and there is a lot to do! We’re looking for someone who is excited by supporting strategic outcomes and making them happen.  Which brings me to my next point, building relationships is your superpower. Your previous experience in learning and/or organisational development roles will enable you to communicate and understand the needs of a diverse audience, in different locations around the world. 

Why 99designs?

As 99d continues to scale, we are committed to building an inclusive and diverse team that reflects the communities in which we operate. We want people to feel like they belong and can bring their whole selves to work. Our aim is to continue to foster a collaborative environment with a keen focus on innovation, growth and ownership. Below are just some of the things we do to support our people:

  • Career development and learning in whatever way suits you! Think paid R&D days, courses, formal and informal mentoring, conferences… however you learn best 99d has got you covered.
  • Culture of workplace flexibility and wellness. Study? Parent juggling? Everyone has different needs and the business will support you in the best way we can. Some people work remotely, some with flex start and finish times...the common thread is it’s all about your individual needs. With annual wellness bonuses of $605 + annually refreshing your WFH space with $300, you'll be supported to do your thang.
  • Support for working parents. 18 weeks paid parental leave policy for all parents (we don't distinguish between a primary and secondary carer), which can be accessed part time or any way you want it over the first 18 months, which you can access from day 1 of joining us. We also pay superannuation for paid and unpaid parental leave for 18months!
  • Support for the community. In addition to 99nonprofits, 99designs provide one paid volunteer day a year for you to support a charity and the community as you see fit!
  • 99d are also a Proud Code Like a Girl internship partner, host of Girl Geek Academy hack days, & maintain popular open source projects, and support a range of other community groups. It’s in our DNA.
