Digital product development specialists
Finding the right people to build and launch digital products can be difficult, with a risk of being burned by expensive recruitment agencies or let down by contractors with hard to validate skills.
We have 30+ thoroughly proven digital specialists ready to work directly with you for a few hours or a few months. They have a proven track record with us so we’re confident that they can deliver, and they’re great people to work with. We carefully select our people based on:
Very high capability in their field
Ability to self-manage
They are often multi skilled - a strong secondary skill can provide perspective (eg: UX Design with a background as a developer can propose solutions which can be practically implemented.)
Shared values - a passion for learning, honesty, integrity, focus and drive
Some of the capabilities available within the JungleGym specialist team include:
Marketers to acquire, retain and grow audiences
Sales conversion specialists
Campaign managers (including search and social media specialists)
Lawyers who actually understand the unique needs of digital startups
Digital product managers
UX and UI designers
Commercial modelling strategists
We love the excitement and challenge of developing and launching digital products. We’ve built our own companies from the ground up, and worked with many others, both here in NZ and around the world, including some of the world’s biggest and most innovative brands. Industry recognition for our work include Best Design awards for delivering great user experiences, and Cannes Gold Lions for world class digital marketing campaigns.
