Careers at Luminary in Indonesia

We are committed to being the agency of choice for the brightest minds in digital.

Luminary is officially a Great Place to Work!

We can talk 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 for three consecutive years in Indonesia (as well as eight years in Australia). In fact, 100 percent of our team members say that Luminary is a great place to work, compared to 53 percent of employees at a typical global company. In 2023 we were also ranked No.10 on the Indonesia Best Workplaces List 🎉

Our flexible work policies

Parental leave

In Indonesia Luminary provides primary carers with six weeks of paid maternity leave before and after the birth of a child, while secondary carers are entitled to one week of paid leave. Primary carers can take up to nine months of unpaid parental leave, which can be extended for an additional 12 months by arrangement. If you adopt a child, Luminary will support you with one week of paid adoption leave. 

Carers leave

If your child is unwell, you can use your sick leave to cover you – so you don't have to dip into your annual leave while you take care of them.

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

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

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 Indonesia, our partner charity is the Jodie O’Shea House. We also participate in a range of environmental initiatives throughout the year, including mangrove planting days.

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 flow riding to painting classes. And you’ll never go hungry in the office!

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.

Social contract

At the heart of the way we conduct ourselves is our social contract. 

This is where our team outlines their expectations in terms of the way we work together. We agree to have these statements guide our actions and behaviour:

1. We empower ourselves and others to grow and be our best.

2. We seek first to understand and then be understood.

3. We add value and account for it by doing our time logs each day.

4. We treat people's time as though it is precious.

5. We conduct retros on each project, allowing us to have a growth mindset.

6. We are empathetic, real and human in our interactions. We don't really know what people are dealing with.

7. We value continuous progress and we focus on the customer.

8. It's OK to say I don't know.

9. Approach time zones as though you were the one who had to get up early or stay late.

10. Be the person who is great to work with.

When you put people first, they flourish. And in turn, so does their work.
