A good work-life balance is very important at Electrum. You know when your brain has switched off for the day and you need to go for a surf, but you also know when the design you have produced is sloppy. At Electrum you will be expected to know when you deserve a surf and when you need to knuckle down and get the work done. For the more “knuckle down” days we make it worth your while with benefits such as:

  • Onsite gym and shower facilities
  • Daily cooked lunches and a stocked kitchen for the mid-day nibbles
  • A rad coffee station where you can practice your cappuccino foam art
  • Team socialising, hikes, getaways, and dinners

We have created a safe, transparent environment where:

  • We know mistakes happen, and that’s okay. We even have a 3 step approach to dealing with them:
  • Tell everyone about it
  • Fix the mistake
  • Tell everyone about it
  • You are responsible for your actions – both the successes and the failures
  • We talk openly about salaries and bonuses. At Electrum we believe it’s evident why some people earn more and others a bit less. It’s like being on a sports team where salaries are widely known.
