At Eventbrite, our office dogs (aka Barklings) make our days, well, “brite” and we think it’s time to give them some of the spotlight! Meet Ollie, one of our Barklings in Melbourne, who has graciously given us a peek at a day in the life!

7:30am Wake Up

My mum wakes me up, I open one eye but it takes me awhile before I finally jump off the bed (where I snuck in earlier in the night) and get my breakfast.

7:45am Car Trip to the office

Drive to work. I’ve recently discovered how much fun hanging my head out the window is, so many smells and the wind in my ears! I love having the window down, even if it’s raining.

8:30am Arrive and scope out the office

I arrive up the elevator and into the door of my favourite place, the office, where the Talent Acquisition team fills the walls with all of my new best friends! I run straight over to the CX team to check if my best friend Charlie is also in the office before I go to the kitchen to see if any humans have any food scraps for me.

10:00am Persistent Games with my work buddies

My most energetic time of day. I grab my teddies and bounce around the office until Business Development Manager Tyson or General Manager Phil play a strong game of tug of war. Belly rubs & treats if I’m good too!

12:00 Lunchtime..woof!

I check what the team has brought in for lunch, unfortunately for me I’ve already eaten but if I tilt my head and show my puppy dog eyes — I usually get some of their sandwiches.

1:00 Relaxing and people watching

There is so much going on in the street below — birds, people, other dogs and a river with ducks and swans. I stare out the window and watch the world pass by.

2:00 Reception Duty and Snoozing

I lie down at reception and keep a watchful eye on the visitors and comings and goings of the office. You could say I’m the unofficial Office Manager, but it doesn’t take long before I drift into a deep sleep, so it’s probably a good thing that we have an official Office Manager, too.

5:00 Hometime

My mum says it’s home time but I’m so comfortable I don’t want to leave. Oh wait, is that a treat I smell — okay I’ll get up. I do the rounds around the office and get pats and kisses (it’s a hard life for an office doggo…).

Ollie has been a Barkling since he was a puppy and the office has loved watching him grow! Want to come work with Ollie? See open roles in Melbourne
