CAREERS AT BELLROY
Product Developer

IN A NUTSHELL

Since we launched 10 years ago with a range of six wallets, we’ve grown, and now release 30 new products a year (give or take). We’re expanding into different categories, and our Production team, (key to getting all of these products and those yet to come into the world), are on the search for a Product Developer to join them in a period of rapid growth. Could it be you?

As our Product Developer you’ll work collaboratively with diversely skilled product designers and product developers to refine and engineer our designs by testing and prototyping (in-house and with external suppliers). You’ll have solid proficiency in 3D CAD, and enjoy being hands on with a strong desire to dive deep into the details of our manufacturing processes. Your methodical, iterative process will help shape a design vision into something practical, realistic and production-friendly, while maintaining the integrity and character of the original design.

None of that scares you away, because you have some experience and a few processes up your sleeve to know how to handle it. But while your 3D modeling, prototyping and communication skills are strong, you’ll walk in here ready and super keen to learn way more. We’re all about learning, so you’ll fit right in.

Bring us your practical expertise, critical desire for improvement and appreciation for good design. In return we’ll provide you with the stretch goals, the chance to develop products you are proud of and the support you need to flourish.


A DAY IN THE LIFE OF OUR PRODUCT DEVELOPER MIGHT INCLUDE…

  • Discussing a new design concept with the design team and thinking about the process to make it a reality
  • Working on drawings and 3D models for the tooling we might need and, sharing, discussing and refining them with your manager and peers
  • Using our lab to proof-out the tooling and product construction process
  • Checking development samples from the supplier, clearly documenting your feedback and following up to make all of the necessary changes clear
  • Designing tests for a new product in the development process
  • Undertaking research on new technologies for improving a traditional cutting process

YOU COULD BE THE ONE IF YOU HAVE…

  • 1-3 years experience in a similar role, demonstrating solid understanding of product development and engineering
  • Prototyping experience - both hand and digital fabrication
  • Excellent time management skills, you’re diligent, organised and able to coordinate multiple projects at one time
  • Proficiency in 3D CAD and familiarity with Illustrator, Adobe cloud-based software and software/technology in general
  • An understanding of the manufacturing process with an inquisitive drive to grow your knowledge
  • A strong desire to learn by trying new things, shifting and adapting your approach to push for improvement

WHY WORK FOR BELLROY?

We have carefully built our culture on radical effectiveness. Our credo is "smart people with good intentions who get sh*t done" (yes, really). We have an awesome workplace in the heart of Fitzroy with free snacks and coffee and a workspace in Bells Beach.

Bellroy’s mission is to inspire better ways to carry; use business as a force for good; and help the world – and our crew – flourish. We do good by making great products that delight people in their everyday lives; by innovating ways to help our staff love their work and grow as people; and by donating a portion of our revenue to some of the world’s most effective charities. We have a beautiful office space in Fitzroy (and another smaller one in Bells Beach), and we are constantly looking for better ways to do… well, everything. Want to help us?

OUR MISSION

Inspire better ways to carry.
Use business as a force for good.
Help the world, and our crew, flourish.

Our Spaces

'Bellroy' is a fusion of our two homes – Bells Beach and Fitzroy. Bells Beach brings a relaxed, outdoor vibe to balance Fitzroy's creative, urban style. The city and the sea; inspiration and adventure. Together they provide a perfect balance.

Bells Beach

Our beach HQ sits behind giant sandstone cliffs that overlook one of Australia’s best-known surfing coastlines. It’s where our Product Designers experiment in the Maker Lab, and our Sales team consume awesome amounts of espresso and Skype bandwidth. Things are more tranquil here than our Fitzroy neighbours and we like the focus that can create. There’s a cafe right next door if you need a quick bite and our 11am surf check always provides the perfect chance to reset the mind with some salt air.

Fitzroy

Our Fitzroy space is immersed in the middle of Melbourne’s creative hub. It’s where our Creative, Marketing, Engineering and Operations teams develop campaigns and ensure each Bellroy is sent safely across the world. Walk out the door and you’ll find streets bursting with energy (and the best ramen joint this side of Tokyo). There’s also an olympic-size pool just around the corner for those in need of a lunchtime refresh.

Remotely

Outside of our two main headquarters we have a team that works remotely - from Western Australia to parts of Asia, the USA and Europe. Being global is at the heart of Bellroy, it keeps us connected, and makes sure we see life from many different perspectives. If you have an internet connection and the flexibility to become part of a team you don’t see everyday, you might consider joining our growing global network.

Our Team

Everyone has a unique set of skills, which all blend to achieve a clear vision – Inspire better ways to carry; use business as a force for good; help the world, and our crew, flourish.
