It's not often that an opportunity like this comes along, and fewer still is the opportunity available to so many disciplines. Google have recently announced Creative Lab Five for Sydney.
The Creative Five is an initiative that has been running in NY and London for several years. The Sydney Five will be the same as the other Five's - an 11-month contract open to anyone with an Australian work visa and serious skills - whether that be as a designer, technologist, writer, developer, film-maker, hacker, wild-card, gerbil-juggler or all of the above.
Applications are open through to the end of October and you can find out how to do that here. We will interview in November/December and you start in January.
It’s an awesome opportunity, seriously have a go creativelab5.com
