What's it like to work at Luminary?

Hear what Luminary team members have to say about working here.

Luminary is officially a Great Place to Work!

We can rave endlessly about how much we all love working here but it always carries a bit more weight when someone else says it. That’s why we’re really excited to be able to say that we have been certified as a Great Place to Work in Australia for eight consecutive years in Australia and three in Indonesia.

Our social conscience

We’re all about brightening up the world, one pixel at a time. But we also realise that we’re part of a bigger picture too. That’s why we support those less fortunate through our charity partnerships. In Australia, we support a range of different charities. In Bali, our partner charity is the Jodie O’Shea House

Luminary is a Certified B Corp!

We have cemented our commitment to use business as a force for good...

Our flexible work policy - Work from anywhere! 

On our 21st birthday, we introduced a policy that allows our team to work from anywhere. We have state-of-the-art technology that allows you to work outside of a Luminary office on both an ad hoc, or more permanent, basis. We want our team to be able to work in a way that works for them and their families. This means that they can work from home a few days a week or another location of their choice (with some conditions). Read more about our approach to flexible work arrangements

I actually love coming into work. I love the people, I love the flexibility, I love the fact that it feels like management genuinely cares. If I had to sum it up, I’d say it’s the culture. I’ve honestly never worked anywhere else with such a great culture.

Our fun side

You’d be hard-pressed to find a workplace with a more jam-packed social calendar than ours. At the end of every month we celebrate with a team event, which can be anything from bubble soccer to virtual reality gaming. We also do a catered monthly team lunch. And you’ll never go thirsty on a Friday afternoon!

We go out to all sorts of different places for our monthly team celebrations, from bowling, to laser skirmish, to … you name it!

Our reputation

Our reputation as experts in digital is beyond dispute. Our data-driven approach has underpinned the online success of some of Australia’s most well-known brands. The leader of our developer team is one of only a handful of Kentico MVPs worldwide, and we’re also trusted implementers of the Optimizely, Sitecore and Umbraco platforms.

There isn't really any hierarchy. The people who work every day on the projects, the developers, the designers, the project managers, we're all seen as being equal and everyone sits out together.

Our training and coaching

Continuous learning is a huge part of our culture. We offer in-house training on a weekly basis, and each team member is allocated an annual training budget to attend courses, industry events and conferences. We also provide regular access to a performance coach for one-on-one professional mentoring. Read what our performance coach, Lisa, has to say about coaching at Luminary

Having access to a coach internally has been really cool. I feel like I’ve achieved a lot more here in 12 months than I would have at another company and I put that down to having access to that coaching.

Our people

It sounds like a cliché but it’s actually true. The thing our people say they like best about working at Luminary is their colleagues. We’re a close-knit bunch of beautiful nerds who go out of our way to support each other. We’re united by a common goal to give our best, and be our best – and have a starship-load of fun along the way. If you want to find out more about the way we work together, and the expectations we have around fostering a supportive and inclusive culture, check out our Social Contract.

It really is a team environment, so you are never on your own with anything or any task. Everyone is really supportive and will have your back. It's also amazing having the opportunity to work with our performance coach and get support and insight on any challenges.

Supporting mental and physical wellbeing

Luminary's Employee Assistance Program (EAP) provides vital support for mental and emotional well-being, available in both English and Bahasa. These counselling services are available for team members facing work or personal stress, allowing for a confidential space to address challenges. Luminary's holistic approach to health also extends to physical health with our BeFit program extending financial support in signing up for a health and fitness challenge or membership.

Our locations

We have six office locations, including five in Australia and one in Bali. This means we’re able to cast our talent net widely. It also means we can offer our team members the chance to relocate permanently or temporarily as the need (or desire) arises.
