AnalogFolk and Rokt launch hidden message campaign to get engineers

October 24, 2022
New campaign targets the best and brightest engineers in Australia

Rokt, Australia’s leading ecommerce machine learning technology, has today launched a dual meaning campaign on the Sydney light rail with the words Python, Ship and Scrum wrapped on the tram. The ‘Speaking our language’ creative is a hidden message for anyone who understands coding lingo while the general public will read the message as three random, unrelated words.

The eight week campaign comes off the back of Rokt’s recent announcement with Uber Eats to drive additional revenue for Uber during the checkout experience.

Rokt senior vice president of global partnerships, Craig Galvin, said the campaign is designed to continue Rokt’s strong growth by recruiting the best engineers in Australia.

“This year we are looking to grow our headcount substantially. We want to attract the best talent in the country so this campaign is designed to grab the attention of Australia’s best engineers who understand that words like Python, Ship and Scrum make the online world go round and aren’t a snake, a vessel with sails, or a rugby play.”

“We chose an outdoor medium for our message because we are specifically targeting engineering university students and graduates, an audience found on public transport like the light rail. Anyone who understands the hidden coding message can apply for a career at Rokt through careers which is printed on the tram.”

The campaign was created by AnalogFolk Sydney. Managing director Matt Robinson said, “We’re thrilled to be partnering with Rokt, to help support their rapid growth by targeting the best and brightest engineers in Australia. Engineers have their own language, and we’ve had fun creating this quirky campaign that will get their attention, and spark their curiosity about working at one of Australia’s leading ecommerce technology success stories.”
