Belong’s mission is to deliver inspired, effortless, human connection.

We started in 2013 with the purpose providing Australians with great value ADSL and nbnTM network services, and in 2017, we extended the offer to mobile plans. Our plans come with generous data inclusions, no hidden costs. What you see is what you get.

We’re just over a hundred people on one floor in Melbourne Docklands. It’s a start-up feel, with corporate backing. We’re full of customer-loving, product-shaping, market-creating and technology-building people; passionate about getting things right for our customers. There’s no room for heroes or egos.  We are one team. We are looking for a diverse mix of people, with great collaboration skills to add to our culture.

What we are doing

We are developing a reusable, atomic design framework and selecting and implementing tools to fully automate digital content creation and delivery.

Who are we looking for?

We have a bias for people with mix of skills and willingness to wear multiple hats. For example, Experience Design & Development, or Front-end and Back-end.
