This year is shaping up to be UpContent’s best year ever! We’ve launched new products, completed a Series A funding round, and grown our revenue and user base faster than ever! The work of innovation is never done though, and we are looking for a skilled developer to join our ranks and craft the next generation of UpContent web applications.
We believe that our users deserve the best, which is why we are seeking someone who is passionate about web technologies and standards to join us in building powerful and seamless interfaces to our content discovery engine. If you are the type of person that sweats the details, especially when it comes to performance, security and reliability, then we would love to talk to you!
Before we get to the details, let us tell you a bit about UpContent, and what it’s like to be a member of our team.
It is our mission to help marketers spend less time searching for and more time acting on tailored content to spark informed conversations with their audience–all while becoming a trusted authority. Our product, UpContent, is integrated with the industry’s leading social media management platforms, Hootsuite and Buffer, making it easier than ever to find, curate, and schedule relevant content.
We’re a small, dedicated team with a flexible, autonomous culture, fueled by coffee and tacos. We work hard and laugh harder. Keep reading if this sounds like the kind of environment you’re looking for!
