Procrastination is a newly established educational games and software company
based in Melbourne CBD. We are a group of individuals who are proactive,
creative, curious and open-minded.
Productive Procrastination will launch LEDA, its
inaugural leadership and interpersonal skills behaviour change platform, in
early 2017. Our vision is to
grow and improve leaders through innovative solutions, and we strive to manifest
what our platform teaches, including resilience, growth-mindset and empathy.
order to help accomplish that vision, we are seeking to add key members to our
Productive Procrastination is looking for a writer to join our team and collaborate on multiple facets of LEDA.
We are looking for a creative individual who can appreciate and
understand both our mission and the content that drives it – including research
or example situations from corporate environments.
You will use this pool of information to craft engaging scripts, with
the help of our research experts, which will form the basis for the creation of
the animated cartoons that are at the core of our educational platform.
You will also create short branching, interactive scenarios for the platform’s
games, that illustrate how the positive behaviours taught in the cartoons translate
into better leadership and work environments.
Finally, you will participate in preparing interviews with managers
and experts, using the content you helped shape as a basis to orient the
discussion towards core topics.
We are looking for someone for a three-month contract who is available
to start immediately. There is potential for the position to become full-time
when the contract expires. We strongly encourage diverse candidates to apply.
As we are a new company, all team members are expected to contribute
to ideas, company direction, and be prepared to take on responsibilities and
tasks beyond their traditional role. You will participate in frequent content
reviews where you will have the chance to give your opinion on the platform's
content, even outside your specific field. Your opinion about all parts of the
platform will be solicited and valued. Similarly, the creation of scripts and
scenarios will be a joint effort, albeit one that you will lead; so being a
team player is a crucial aspect of this position.
Our team is highly motivated. It is important that all members believe in LEDA’s goal of positive social behaviour
change. Having personally experienced some of the issues we aim to tackle and/or
having experience in corporate environments in general, would go a long way
towards understanding the content and in turn, being able to create more

experience writing for media that share these objectives will be a valuable
asset. Experience writing for games or interactive media, along with an
understanding of branching / emergent narrative, would also be highly
Current methods of teaching leadership and
interpersonal skills have not been effective in creating long-term behavioural
change. Our platform is designed to close this gap, focusing on delivering
relevant content, keeping it top of mind, and programming in regular practice
and application to promote enduring change.
