  • ​​Delicious daily lunch, snacks, fruits and drinks, and awesome monthly Friday bars hosted by the teams.

About engineering team

  • We're working on Issuu's Story Cloud both on web and mobile apps, machine learning to better understand our content and reading experience.

  • We use Python, Javascript/Typescript (client and server-side), and we're open to using new languages/technologies (e.g., we're assessing introducing Rust to our tech stack).

  • Our architecture is micro-service-oriented using AMQP.

  • We deploy multiple times a day on AWS and use Docker Swarm/Kubernetes, MySQL/Postgres, Redis, Elastic Search, etc.

  • We strive to be agile, but we're not religious about Scrum, Kanban, or any other methodology.

  • We have many cross-team guilds where we share knowledge, coordinate efforts, and help each other.

  • "20% time"- everyone gets one day a week to invest as they see fit (i.e., learn something new, experiment with new ideas in the product, join efforts with others, improve what you think matters).
