A howler of a Photoshop error has capped off a big week for Lisa Wilkinson's family after her daughter's news platform mixed up the German and Aboriginal flags.

Billi FitzSimons, the daughter of Wilkinson and Peter FitzSimons, has been editor of the 'social media first' outlet The Daily Aus since March.

And the 24-year-old faced her first big hurdle in the top job this week when the website edited the German flag to the top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, rather than the Aboriginal flag.

Meanwhile - in what could only be dubbed suspicious timing - just a day later Ms FitzSimons posted a job listing looking for a fact checker who has 'meticulous attention to detail'.

The post was about the government's decision to fork out $25million to install the Aboriginal flag on top of the Sydney landmark. 

In a statement, co-founder Sam Koslowski told Daily Mail Australia: 'It was a simple screw-up. 

'One of our web designers was mocking up some new designs and inadvertently put a mock design up live.

'This was a design testing error and nothing to do with our editorial team. It was meant for internal design review only and was published in error. 

'We have reviewed our internal design and testing processes so it doesn’t happen again.'

In the wake of the error, Ms FitzSimons took to Twitter and LinkedIn on Thursday to publish the job listing.

It sought for a detail-oriented person that could 'critically examine sources'.

The Daily Aus describes itself as a site 'offering young Australians a digestible and engaging way to access the news'.

'Our objective is to provide the context to a news story making the rounds,' the site explains.
