Do you love solving big, scary business problemswith elegant digital solutions?

Digital Strategist

Get Started is looking for an energetic and insightful Digital Strategist to join our growing team in the iconic Georges Building in Melbourne.

Get Started is a digital agency with 40+ passionate professionals that are committed to creating digital experiences that matter. Since 1999 we have been delivering websites and web applications for a broad range of clients, from large multinationals, to government departments and well-known Australian brands. We are proud of the work we produce and we're even prouder of the team we've built.

Our team is rapidly expanding and right now we need to find an experienced Digital Strategist. A Digital Strategist at Get Started is an exciting role that connects the business problems and challenges that our clients are facing with solutions that our talented digital production team can implement. The role requires a deep level of insight, a passion for problem solving and a wealth of digital knowledge. 

You will be expected to work closely with the Directors to respond to new business opportunities, and collaborate with clients and the production team to implement the agreed upon digital strategy and tactics. You will also play a key role in promoting the agency through the sharing of our ideas and insights, on our blog and other content distribution channels. 

The outputs of your work will include proposals, tender submissions, presentations, whitepapers, blog posts, user journey maps, user personas, and content audits (to name a few!) 

We expect your previous roles may not have been called Digital Strategist. It is likely that in the past you've been an Account Manager, Digital Planner, Digital Producer or some other wacky job title that didn't exist 10 years ago...
