At Flux Federation, we create marvelous experiences and products for energy teams and their customers all around the world. Flux is a team of 100+ software developers, designers, testers and product people. We’re the team that powers Powershop in NZ, Australia and the UK.
We have ‘UX’ in our name, and that’s deliberate. Energy is a complicated industry, but we want to make it simple and fun. We’re serious about making life better for our customers and putting them first.
That’s where you come in. We're looking for an experienced CX Researcher to work closely with the design, product and technology teams to make sure that we create brilliantly crafted experiences for the most important person – the customer.
Here’s how you’ll do that:
- You’ll create and conduct robust usability tests and customer research
- Be familiar with a range of methodology, you’ll know when to choose hand-drawn paper prototypes over interactive pixel perfect screens
- Understand the attributes and values of both quantitative and qualitative research and know when to employ each
- An excellent communicator – both written and verbal – you’ll help everyone to understand the implications of design and technology decisions with succinct reports and engaging discussions and presentations.
- Working collaboratively with a team with a broad range of expertise, you’ll spend most of your time working side-by-side with designers and UX experts. You’ll enjoy raising awareness of ‘the customer’ with the wider team
- A self-starter, you’ll help to identify strategic pieces of research as together we plan and progress projects and ongoing work
- You’ll enjoy the challenge and reward of conducting research in different international markets and helping Flux evolve our CX processes as we grow.
Here’s why you should come and work here:
- You give a shit about the quality of your work and improving yourself alongside the business
- We’re growing, it’s exciting. We’re looking to empower the world and you'd love help us grow
- How people live with power is rapidly changing with EVs, solar and batteries. It’s an exciting field and you’ll love the possibility of what we can create
- You thrive in a positive learning environment. You want to progress and develop and we’ll support you in that
- You value diversity of thought and we do too. We want you to bring your whole self to work
- You like a relaxed work environment and flexibility. Everyone has a laptop so you have the freedom to work from a beanbag or a desk, a couch or even your kitchen table at home
- You like fun. There's beer, wine and non-alcoholic drinks on Fridays, great coffee, soy milk, table tennis and a pie warmer. We've got knitters, bakers and musicians, as well as runners, cyclists and trampers. Whatever you're into will add to the team
- You want to be bold and you always seek better ways. We'll be bold together.

Ok Go, the band. They had a videoclip like this.
Just say 'good people', mate.
I like a big money-grabber acknowledging what we're up to and relegating their part to letting us get on with it.
Spark just did a VO montage.
I think we all can agree that if StopPress actually applied some rigour around its 'Ads Of The Week' decision making rather than just giving it to any old brand with a new ad (ahem, I'm talking to you Holden) ...

Who is it for:2degrees by DDB
Why we like it: Nearly 10 years after its arrival in the market, 2degrees is making itself and its values known with a new brand campaign. While the services of the telco, including phone and internet, are intangible and encourage an esoteric approach to the marketing, this spot cleverly connects 2degrees with what it's all about: communication. With a mellow backing track and soft-voiced narrator, it explores all the different forms of communication while throwing in some humour like missing teeth and subtly calls out women for wearing activewear when visiting a cafe.
Who's it for: Samsung by Colenso BBDO and Flying Fish
Why we like it: Blink and you'll miss it. Samsung went bold to launch its new Galaxy S9 by placing 25 of the phones around a set that in five-seconds erupted into a display of colour and movement. The slow-motion video, the result of the display, highlights the camera as well as the technical nouse of Colenso BBDO and Flying Fish who bravely accepted the challenge and shot it all in front of a live audience.
Who's it for: Holden by Special Group
Why we like it: Faced with the challenge of people thinking its Australian factory was closing down, Holden's responded with this spot showing that's far from the case. As well as responding to the challenge at hand, the ad cleverly includes some promotion of specific car features and confirms the brand is here to stay by discussing what it has in store in the future.
Who's it for: Scapegrace by Motion Sickness
Why we like it: How do you change your name and make consumers aware of it? This spot by Scapegrace, formerly Rogue Society, does just that. It also helps customers accept the change by explaining the reason behind it, which in this case is a bonus lesson in international trade laws. StopPress' audience has responded well, with compliments for both the brand and agency and we agree it's a great piece of work.
