TL;DR.

Urbian is an 11-year-old digital product consultancy. We come alongside our clients to solve the big things they can't do on their own. We do this by putting together small teams of strategists, product managers, product designers and developers. We primarily launch new products or services or help deliver existing products or features for large projects that need to scale.

Over the last few years, we have also partnered with entrepreneurs to launch start-ups we believe should have a place in the world as well as launching our very own start-ups.

Why Work For Us.

Because we're all really into making epic stuff the world uses. Over the last 11 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 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.

Our Hiring Process.

  1. If we like your profile we ping you for a video call with no more than 2-3 people in our team (Managing Partner, Tech Lead, Product Manager, etc.).
  2. We go through our notes of all the applicants and make the difficult decision on which person is the best fit for us and us for them. This can take 2-4 days depending on the number of applicants.
  3. You do a week of paid for work with us.
  4. If during that week working together we like each other, we will send a contract for you to review.
  5. We both sign and you join the team, BOOM!
