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.

Absolutely loving it - great job!
This is a reworking of an old English campaign from decades ago where they noted signs of breast-cancer in old masters, right?
Embarrassingly for the industry, this certainly looks like a scam ad. A scam ad in my mind is a piece of work that is instigated by the agency for the primary purpose of winning awards, rather than having a real ...
How is this an actual media story - there's barely a point of view in this piece!
Love love love!

Who's it for: ASB by With Collective
Why we like it: Slightly dry humour aside, ASB's tried something a little different with its new agency With Collective. Rachel House, from Hunt for the Wilderpeople, owns the role of True Rewarden and lends her comedic tone to a script that manages to educate the audience about True Rewards alongside the one-liners. It's too early to tell if the True Rewards character becomes as iconic as Goldstein but we hope she sticks around for a few more spots at least.
Who's it for: Hallenstein Brothers
Why we like it: Just in case you're invited to a black-tie event in Botswana, Hallenstein Brothers has your back. This spot is the latest in a video series that's taken suits where no other suits have been before, including the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah and shark-infested waters, and in return stirred up jealousy among viewers who wish they could be a model for the clothing brand. And if the beautifully shot African wildlife is not enough, the song Kingdom Come makes for great listening and we're sure the band, Braves, will get a lot of attention from Hallenstein's shout out to them on Facebook.
Who's it for: Les Mills Fight Night by Media Design School students
Why we like it: The annual Les Mills Fight Night was last week and this year Media Design School students made no secret of the fact Cure Kids needs donations to fund its research. Adding impact to the already gripping images of fighters securing coins to their fists is the fact that the first one shown is a father to a sick child. His appearance exemplifies the fact that despite not being in the ring, parents are fighting for the kids every day. The final blow to the heartstrings is the inclusion of Eva, a young girl with a rare condition that's endangering her life.
