RedBalloon has been a trusted leader in the online retail space since 2001, after pioneering experiential gifting in Australia. We connect customers with over 5000 unique and amazing experiences, sourced from more than 1500 business partners across Australia and New Zealand.
We've come a long way from our humble beginnings – launched from the front room of Founder Naomi Simson's family home. RedBalloon was an experiment to test whether a company could be successful simply by listening to its people and customers and delivering a great experience to both, and we remain committed to this 16 years on.
RedBalloon is led by CEO David Anderson, is the marketing partner of thousands of small businesses - we not only deliver customers but also provide business tools, education and digital marketing expertise to those listed with RedBalloon. When business partners are successful then so is RedBalloon. We're an Australian small business, supporting other small businesses and together we are all stronger.

I've never before worked for a company that cares so much about people. I've been here six years and have seen a lot of change - but the one consistent thing is that we always look after our people. I come to work with a smile on my face every day. I love the team at RedBalloon and it's a privilege to work on consistently great projects. It really is like a big family here.
My business card is a photo of me smiling scuba diving the Great Barrier Reef, next to a huge colourful fish. That sums up life behind the big red door. We plunge ourselves into the depths of challenge, but make sure to have fun while we’re down there. With a supportive colleagues who’ve become friends, I wake up every day thankful that I still love coming to work five years in.
Fail fast, learn fast. We are responsible for ourselves, owning our failures and learning from them. Being driven, self-correcting and resilient is what delivers our success.
Best version of ourselves. We are intentional in being our best self for the greater good. Our commitment to greatness means we are proud of who we are everyday.
Make an impact. We show up consciously to do our best work and aim to win. We make a difference to our own lives, our peers, our clients, our customers and our community.
When we're not working away, you can find us breaking World Records; enjoying 70s themed company celebrations; weekends spent rally driving; cruises, theme parks and foodie festivals. There's rarely a dull moment at RedBalloon, with plenty of laughs and good stories to go around.
