Summary

About Us

The Personalised Marketing & Social Intelligence Platform.

Continuon allows brands to find their voice in an increasingly cluttered world. Understand peoples interests and influence based on deep behavioural insights, build personalised campaigns to engage & nurture them, resulting in increased brand advocacy and authentic one-to-one relationships.

We are a young and energetic team who don't believe in boundaries when it comes to "martech" and are always changeling the status quo of what may be possible in this space. We have an extremely flat environment and don't believe in a bureaucratic approach to management as it caps creativity.

We only look to hire developers that are looking to do ground breaking work on a product, that have a good sense of urgency and have the ability to not only add value to the team, but that look to create new value and ideas to the overall goals and visions.

Our Culture

We offer what all tech start-ups do: foozball, beer, flexi-hours, casual dresscode but we have a kicker: purpose! We believe in having purpose in our work and we want to add value to people's lives through our work.

We believe in collaboration, transparency and innovation. This is entrenched through weekly sharing sessions, daily stand ups, ongoing training, prototyping, experimentation, a flat line-structure and continuously challenging the status quo of what a "martech" product can offer.

Our Values

Attention to detail matters at every level. Nothing leaves our hands until we are satisfied that it meets the highest standards of craft we demand. We don’t subscribe to rigid hierarchies, we are all involved in the work. We focus on growing skills and capabilities to keep our swords sharp. Every learning, every piece of knowledge gained is the foundation for something new, something better.

Our Development Process

Our main mantra when it comes to our development process is for it to aid us on the way, instead of it getting in the way.

We recognise that the tech industry is constantly evolving and that our process should be too, so we encourage team members of all levels to have their say in how we can improve it.

We don't abide by one methodology, but adopt a variation of Agile and work in 2 week sprints according to priority and effort/reward.

  • We begin all our sprints the same way through a planning session at the beginning of a sprint cycle which is within context to the sprint review session at the end of the sprint cycle. That way we know what to prioritise within context to what has been achieved in prior sprints and what is high priority from both client and product feature/stability points of view.

  • We like our developers to make their own (informed) choices about the way they build their work. If you've come across a fresh new SASS architecture you'd like to try out, go ahead. A new framework that appears to solve many of our past headaches, lets do it.

  • During development we like to have regular status meetings so that everyone on the project stays up to date with progress, this also allows us to nip any issues in the bud. Apart from that, the project development is in your hands.

  • Lastly we do rigorous QA to ensure the final product is just as we had envisioned before deploying code at the start of each sprint.
