About The Dots

We are a network of Makers, Doers, Fixers and Dreamers — collectively creating a better future.

Born out of a genuine passion to make the creative industries more open and diverse, founder Pip Jamieson launched the platform in 2014.

Looking to the future, with the rising march of automation — creativity is our secret weapon. Soon machines will drive, serve customers, code, clean, manufacture, do our accounts and legal work. What are humans still good for? Creativity! So if we want our children and grandchildren to have jobs and make our economies thrive, we need to support the Makers, Doers, Fixers and Dreamers that bring creative ideas to life.

That is what The Dots is all about; connecting, supporting and championing the people, teams and companies that make ideas happen.


We champion creativity as a force for good

Our careers

Start-ups are a rollercoaster ride of highs and lows. We have found the trick to weathering the hard times has been to hire happy, positive people that naturally focus on solutions not blame. It’s an inherent characteristic that you can’t really teach and leads to very productive working environment.

If you're one of those people, we’d love you to apply for upcoming roles.
