Not only do we build & test landing pages for webinars, customer demos, ebooks, events, co-marketing campaigns, we also use it for our job application process. If you check out our careers page (yes, it was built with Unbounce) you’ll Read More...

Growing an Awesome Team Culture

Someone recently asked me how we’ve built such a great culture at Unbounce. I thought about it for a minute and responded that we didn’t do anything really, all we’ve done is hire good people and stay out of their way.  We’ve never really sat down and asked “how do we make a great culture?”  You can’t create culture, but great culture “may” develop as a result of a handful deliberate actions. Let me elaborate. Read More...

24 hours in Seattle: Unbounce Meetup at Mozplex, Speakers’ Corner with Oli Gardner & Lessons Learned

Earlier this month, Ryan Engley, Oli Gardner and myself hopped into my small Dodge Neon and hit the road. Destination: Seattle, Washington. When the friendliest border guard we’ve ever encountered asked us why we were headed to Seattle, we simply replied: to hang out with a few of our customers. And that’s exactly what we did. With one quick pit-stop for cheaper, American beer we headed to the shiny, new Read More...

He had a lot of great ideas, but needed a partner in crime to help execute on them. We sat down and after some initial planning, decided to scale it back to one night of talks on tech security. Chris Evans, the head Read More...

My First Google+ Hangout On Air: Listening, Acting Human & Lessons Learned

I’ll be the first to admit it: I am not comfortable in front of the camera. I hate hearing my own voice or seeing myself on screen. But recently, an opportunity arose that I couldn’t pass up. So, last week I stepped out of my comfort zone (Oli knows what I’m talking about) to do something totally new in my role at Unbounce: I was a guest on my first Read More...
