Sascha Williams joins Unbounce as Chief Operating Officer

It’s been over a year since our friend, colleague and Co-Founder, Jason Murphy, who served as Chief Operating Officer, left the company to pursue other ambitions. His departure was on great terms and we worked together on preparing Unbounce for post-Jason. Specifically, we debated on what position we wanted to fill as Jason also served in the Chief Finance role. Did we need someone who was focused on people and Read More...

Our curvy road to Clojure

The Clojure language is spreading like wildfire at Unbounce. We just had three people attending Clojure West and being indoctrinated with the latest and greatest news about this language and its ecosystem. So we’re very serious about it! But this commitment didn’t happen overnight: it took us a while and some experiments (at times painful) to come to the conclusion that Clojure was the right tool for us.

True Zero Downtime HAProxy Reloads: An Alternative Approach

Recently, this blog post circulated around the tech Twittersphere: http://engineeringblog.yelp.com/2015/04/true-zero-downtime-haproxy-reloads.html It’s an excellent write-up from Yelp about how to get truly zero downtime from HAProxy, which I recommend reading.  It’ll work for a lot of scenarios, but unfortunately, it doesn’t work for the one we experience at Unbounce.

Breakable Monoliths and the Law of Demeter

Keyboards are on fire: you’re cranking code for your new and awesome technology start-up.

Whether you have one amazing graphic designer or a team of talented folks, it’s tricky to prioritize tasks when every group in the company believes their project is the most important.

More Templates and Background Image Properties

Traditionally (as in the first few years of Unbounce), template development was quite the arduous process where our Creative Director and Design Director would get together and plan out every detail of the page. Layout, color scheme, and copy would be selected to suit Oli’s Conversion Centered Design principles and over a couple weeks of brainstorming and iteration, the makings of a landing page would be scrawled out on a Read More...
