Hi from the RedBalloon Team! A blog by RedBallooner could have been written by any of the sentence-happy team here (you’ll see our real names in a by-line at the top of each blog).

Sooo…this makes it a bit awkward to be writing a bio, because we don’t all love skydiving and we didn’t all grow up in Orange, but we can say that we all share something – a love of meaningful experiences. Because it makes us happy! Awww…

One of the best things about working at RedBalloon is the people we work with. Every trimester we arrange a team activity or outing, and last trimester the Customer Experience team did the Skywalk at Sydney Tower Eye.

How many experiences can you fit into one weekend?

How many experiences can you fit into one weekend?

Over the past year I’ve travelled to India, Nepal, Korea and China, but I haven’t really seen much of my hometown, Sydney. I was tossing up a few ideas of where to go during the Queen’s Birthday long weekend, when I decided to take a holiday right here in Sydney.

The power of giving

The power of giving

For me, skydiving has always been number one on my bucket list. So when RedBalloon told me I was going to be jumping from a plane, I couldn’t wait to share the exciting news with my family and friends. I vividly remember feeling both happy and terrified at the same time.

A post about nothing

A post about nothing

Amazing isn’t it – if I’m in a conversation with others, ideas and topics just simply flow (some may refer to my conversation style as “verbal diarrhoea”). But when it comes to putting my thoughts down on paper, I encounter writer’s block. And I’m not even talking about the content – I’m having trouble thinking of a title for this post!

Did someone say PUPPIES????? It’s not every day you get the chance to spend a full working day playing, feeding, cleaning, hugging and squeezing adorable little animals until your heart’s content.

Expresso Yourself

Expresso Yourself

In the IT world, developers are considered “organisms who turn coffee into code”, but for some reason I’m the exception. I’ve always been curious about coffee though, so I asked my fellow team mates why they love it and how they can tell a good cup from an bad one. Different members of the team gave me different answers, so I decided to take my curiosity to a three hours barista course.

Our Project Manager Pete recently dined out with an eight course degustation delight. I’m a self-confessed foodie. I don’t mean that I’m a contender for Masterchef or a sophisticated epicure… I  just LOVE food! So when I purchased my friend Alex the 8 Course Degustation Dinner – For 2 for her birthday it wasn’t an [...]

I Heart Sydney

I Heart Sydney

Our Employee Experience Assistant Cat is celebrating her one year anniversary next month – not with her boyfriend, but with Sydney.  Giving up a job on a super yacht that travels around the world to exotic places was not easy, but almost one year ago that’s exactly what I did.  After celebrating my 30th birthday [...]

That's Jackie on the left and Sylvia on the right.

Seas the day

The guys love what they do (I mean, who wouldn’t with Sydney Harbour as an office!) and have a great sense of humour, which made the day that much more enjoyable. They make you feel at ease – we felt like we were sailing with a bunch of mates. We got to soak up all the iconic sites Sydney offers from the Harbour, a view we should all enjoy more often.
