Summary

What We Do.

We focus our efforts into 3 complimentary areas:

1. Urbian Projects.
We work with companies helping them identify market opportunities, bring successful digital products and new ventures to life and create the culture & capabilities to sustain them. Industries we are currently working in are health, fintech and travel/tourism.

2. Urbian Ventures.
We partner with entrepreneurs in industries ripe for disruption as well as the venture capital community. Contributing our experience in creating and launching digital products and services, with skin in the game, we help start new companies or pivot existing ones with our full capabilities. One of those ventures is an Instant chat health coach called UpforIt.

3. Start-ups In Residence.
We launch our very own products into the market. We put a large percentage of our profits into these initiatives so we can continue to innovate, learn, create opportunities and share rewards for all involved. Our 2 current start-ups in residence are YoDJ and Hi5.

Why Work For Us.

Because we're all really into making epic stuff the world uses. Over the last 9 years we've learnt how to turn our passion into a business that makes money and pays everyone involved. We have big dreams and even bigger plans of how we're going to launch the best digital products into the market and we're not scared to fail along the way. If that is something that resonates with you, then join us. We can't wait to meet you.

Our Culture.

Our Engineering Process.

We are dedicated to Scrum and the Agile methodology. Our development process runs in a series of 2-week sprints taking on a prioritised project backlog. QA is a combination of automated testing, peer code review, UX acceptance testing, and visual inspection.

We use a "best tool for the job" approach. We build on LAMP & MEAN predominantly but delve into other stacks.

Our Hiring Process.

  1. We have a face to face meeting.
  2. Technical assessment (we give you a fun problem to complete in your own time, using whichever languages/tools you prefer. It is not a problem related to our industry, just something to show us how you think and solve problems)
  3. Meet other team members like Product Owners and Managing Partners.
  4. If we all like you, we make you an offer.
  5. You join the team, BOOM!
