Work With Us

gemaker is proudly built around a sustainable, flexible and progressive employment model that is project-based. This means paying people for the work they do, rather than paying them for being in the office for a set period of time.

This model creates opportunity to tap the skills and expertise of a range of intelligent, qualified and experienced people who do not want rigid jobs, but still seek to make valuable contributions through meaningful careers.

Our whole team enjoys competitive remuneration, a high degree of autonomy and the support of colleagues who all understand that life is larger than work. We work around life rather than fitting life around work.

While gemaker’s core staff is based in Sydney, other team members have home offices around Australia. We make time to connect in-person – through training days, conferences, networking events, team workshops and planning sessions, and to celebrate awards and milestones.

gemaker’s Strategic Engagement Manager, Julie, says ‘after fifteen years of working in the research sector, with both micro-managers and absent managers, I’ve never worked in such a collaborative and cohesive team!’

We are always interested in adding to the pool of people we can draw from, particularly those from a STEM background with skills and experience in:

  • market research
  • technology transfer and commercialisation
  • intellectual property protection and
  • marketing communications, especially digital marketing.

If you have expertise in any of these areas, and are interested in joining gemaker’s team, let us know!

Our Values


We are committed to excellent client outcomes, with a can-do attitude and a strong work ethic. We seek to do meaningful work and give back to our community. To meet clients’ needs, we maintain agility as projects evolve. Our expert, bespoke services, dedication and effectiveness are unmatched.


Flexibility is at our core. Trust, understanding and respect are key to our work model. We scale quickly to meet client needs. We measure by results not by face-time, and fit work around life, not life around work. We know that we are at our best – at work and at home – when we enjoy a balanced life.


We build and cherish trust, understanding and mutual respect in all relationships. We act in the best interests of our clients and colleagues at all times because we know this is essential to our ongoing success. We are accountable for all our decisions and outcomes.


We love STEM and particularly support women in this field. We are driven to help Australian researchers, inventors and startups to achieve global commercial success. We seek to increase our influence, so we can contribute even more to the development of Australian research and innovation.



We invest in long-term relationships with both clients and colleagues. We focus on developing a cohesive team with shared values, to bring out the best in each other. Despite our geographic spread, we maintain strong connections and work collaboratively for high quality results and potent impact.
