Everyone has a story. Our mission is to move storytelling forward. Unlike the traditional agency industry, we are democratizing the art of storytelling through our platform and community of creatives.

We empower everyone from Kim Kardashian, Marc Jacobs, Uber, Whole Foods (to name a few) to millions of other storytellers around the world. Today, we focus on building your story for digital mediums such as Instagram, for example.

But we're more than just an app, and more than just a tool to help schedule when to share photos. We also are building out our analytics to provide further insights to our users and building out a larger content management system for our enterprise partners.

We have an exciting year ahead of us and cannot wait to ship out all the new features that will continue to set the standard for creatives. If you love software, media, strong UI/UX, design, mobile, entertainment, digital, marketing, and everything creative – we'd love to hear from you.

We welcome remote or local candidates!

Engineering at UNUM
Engineering team and processes

Today, our engineering department is broken up into iOS, Android, Web, and Backend. We're cross-functional, meaning that engineering works closely with other engineering departments and across other departments (design, marketing, business) to set the goals and objectives of the Sprint.

We adhere to agile principals and are always open to adjusting how we do things to be more effective and for everyone to be happy with how we work.

Technical Challenges

We like to be multi-platform, but much content is designed on the form-factor of someone's phone. It adds a layer of complexity to ensure that when someone creates content on one device that it looks exactly the same on any other device, while also still being modifiable.

We are also building out systems to allow our business partners to both create and manage various creative tools.

With all of this also comes technical challenges of increasing personalization of content to fit all of our users and their various areas of expertise.

Projects you might work on
  • Building projects with scalability, regression, maintenance, and integration in mind

  • Building out new features on either the front-end or backend that reach and interact with millions of users

  • Generally, always being comfortable moving away from legacy code and developing a focus on maintainability and adopting best practices from the (iOS, Android, Web) community for example.
