Make something new every day.
We're in constant pursuit of a single goal: innovation in the mobile space. But we come at it with an engineer’s eye, because that’s who we are. Urban Airship was formed by a group of engineers who wanted to create solutions with other developers in mind. 25,000 clients and tens of billions of push messages later, seems like we’re doing a pretty good job. If you’re a creative thinker and a problem solver, maybe you should consider hopping on the ship.
The intersection of work and passion.
We’re lucky to work with some of the most talented and experienced developers in the business. Great people bring out the best in everyone around them. Together we can achieve great things by working transparently. Heck, we don’t even have any private offices. Plus, because we work hard, that also means we do the opposite with just as much dedication (luaus, scavenger hunts and dance parties, for starters).
Collaboration is our only rule. We have the rare opportunity to influence both how we work internally, and the external markets we serve. That’s a great chance to make a real difference. So we’re sure to work responsibly and collaboratively to make the most of our vast pool of intellect and skill.
We believe in listening, sharing ideas and constantly improving. In fact, feedback from within drives how we move forward. From our Monday morning, company wide, five-minute stand-up meeting, to our 4pm Friday happy hour, we're perpetually trying new approaches and new techniques to foster our internal development. It’s a continuous improvement loop that always keeps us evolving (and it doesn’t hurt that we have some fun in the process).
Live and work. Not one or the other.
Where we call home is important to us. That’s why our offices are in some great places: San Francisco’s SoMA neighborhood, Portland’s Pearl District, London's Regents Park and, of course, Palo Alto. We’re close to great innovation, but we’re just as close to great culture and the great outdoors.
Expect an industry leading salary plus equity in what you’ll be working to build. And because time is the most precious commodity, we offer you the freedom to make your own decisions about when you’re here, and when you’re not. That means no vacation policy. Just take the time that you need. You’re an adult, we trust you.
Earaches to eyeglasses.
Full medical, dental and wellness coverage are all part of the deal, as they should be. The less you have to worry about those things, the more brainpower you can put towards building cool, new things.
You’ll never go hungry.
We encourage and support your professional growth no matter where you are in your career. We invest in your development with a great job, first and foremost. But we also give you all the resources you could ever want to expand your professional acumen (books, classes, conferences, you name it). Plus, we provide fully catered lunches three days a week (not to mention copious snacks at every turn). So we feed your body and your mind.
Be a part of the bigger community.
We’re big believers in community, so we engage with like minded folk whenever possible. You’ll have the opportunity to take part in industry conferences, meetups and a-thons-aplenty.
Disclaimer about Recruiting Agencies
Urban Airship prefers to recruit candidates directly. We partner with a limited number of preferred agencies when we identify a need for outside staffing support. We do not accept unsolicited agency resumes. We will pay a fee only if the candidate is presented after there is a signed recruiting contract in place between Urban Airship and the agency and only if we have explicitly engaged the agency to submit resumes for a specific opportunity. In the case of candidates being submitted to Urban Airship without a signed contract in place or without being solicited to work on a specific open requisition, Urban Airship explicitly reserves the right to pursue and hire those unsolicited candidates without any financial obligation to the outside recruiter or agency. No employee of Urban Airship has authority to modify the terms of this notice, or waive the requirement that a written contract be in place prior to submitting candidates.
