About Gorilla

We're a specialist digital marketing agency who genuinely love helping our clients become more successful.

The majority of our team are based in Newcastle but we also have remote team members scattered in locations throughout Australia.

We're not the biggest or smallest marketing agency. Over the last 9 years we've grown organically and are lucky to have a great team of friendly people and an awesome bunch of clients.

We're always selective about the clients we work with. We aim to make sure we're a good fit for each other and can help our clients smash their goals.

Most importantly, values drive everything we do. We're here to do great work, look after our clients, have fun and make Gorilla a great place to work.


The people we hire

We're selective about the people we hire. We have a great team of honest, hard working people and we aim to find new team members that fit our culture.

We look for people who:

  1. Are values driven
  2. Are self motivated
  3. Love, love, love helping clients succeed
  4. Have epic skills


Why we're different

There's 3 big reasons why we're different to a lot of other marketing agencies:

#1 - We're totally dedicated to our clients' success. That means putting the client first and rolling up our sleeves to deliver great results. It also means providing exceptional communication and advice to help our clients be as successful as they can be.

#2 - We help our team members grow and develop. Every team member gets a $2000 annual training budget. There's also training time + out of office training days to help accelerate learning.
