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 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).
Founded in 2006 and headquartered in Palo Alto, with offices in Copenhagen, Berlin, and Braga, Issuu is profitable, growing fast, and expanding our team across many departments.
