About Think HQ

Jen Sharpe founded Think HQ in 2010, on the belief that communications can be harnessed as a force of positive impact.

We think human quotient: we unapologetically put people at the heart of everything we do, and we don’t think that should be a radical position.

We create campaigns that understand culture and context, and invite audiences to work with us to transform the(ir) world in their best interest.

Over the years, we’ve grown from a public relations company into an integrated communications agency, working solely on projects that drive social good. Now, whether it’s advertising, public relations, strategy, technology-led products/platforms, content, social media, diverse communications, events or capacity building – we can do it all, and we do it ourselves.  

We are a team of experts from all sorts of backgrounds. Think film makers, journalists, tech consultants, advertising industry legends and multicultural communications specialists. It means that we have the kind of diverse thinking that will lead to the best possible solution. Then, we have all the expertise needed to execute it. 

What brings us together is a real, genuine belief that communications is powerful, and that it must be used to tell the stories that need to be heard. 

About the Technology Team

While we are Technology thinkers at the core, we believe in understanding our clients’ businesses and holistic user behaviours and attitudes to design future-proofed ecosystems and make good engineering decisions.

Our service offering is adaptive to client challenges and user needs. Working with government and not-for-profit organisations means we often lean towards open-source technology however our mandate is to always embrace the technology that is fit-for-purpose. We collaborate, we listen, we support, we lead … no matter what our role is, we always care about doing our best work enabling our people to grow and our client to flourish.

Our services span from delivering websites to building integrated marketing ecosystem, crafting digital campaigns, emerging tech activation, and engineering standalone tech products from inception to full maturity.

We love emerging technologies having delivered award-winning AI-products but recognises that sometimes simply crafting impactful communications that precisely target the right audience can be more effective. We consult and support our clients in engineering their marketing ecosystem, whether it is building a new platform, optimising their current one (CRO, SEO, CMS enhancement, analytics …) or augmenting their team in a managed service model.

The Technology team is rapidly growing as we expand our capabilities to become a one stop shop for our clients who need inclusive and purposeful technology consulting. We are looking to expand our team with an additional developer off the back of winning a new tech-led project for one of our existing clients.

If you care about doing purposeful work and have a passion for rich front-end experiences, UI libraries, code reusability, innovative tech products and emerging technologies, we would love to hear from you.
