Of Montreal: The Case for Satellite Offices

When Unbounce launched a Montreal office in the spring of 2014, it was a big deal. Georgiana, our long-time Director of Marketing, announced she’d be moving back to her hometown to lead the troops. Oli, our globetrotting frontman, would also base himself out east to help spread the Unbounce culture to La Belle Province. Rick, our trusty CEO, wrote an Inside Unbounce post explaining the decision to plant the Unbounce Read More...

Unbounce Attends The Art of Leadership for Women

As many of you might know from Rick’s last post on our Year in Review, Unbounce is trying a lot of new things this year–and one of them is increasing the work we do around gender diversity. We’ve made some great strides and I’m proud to say that Unbounce is now considering elements of gender diversity in the tech industry that a lot of companies (still) won’t dare touch. Some Read More...

Transitioning to Software Development

One of Unbounce’s core values is courage. We want this value to be manifested across the board, including in how our teams evolve. Very often, companies are stuck in an organizational status quo for fear of what could happen if people would start moving between teams or, even scarier, between roles. But not us! We’re convinced that if you’re awesome in one place, there’s a great chance you’ll be awesome Read More...

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...

(The) Last (Two) Month(s) in Customer Success…

About this post: Every month, our Customer Success Team reports on team happenings, support stats, feature requests and customer feedback. The goal is to help our team understand our customers’ pain-points and successes. Ultimately, this post is about giving our customers a voice inside Unbounce. We share these posts so other companies can see how we do things, maybe steal what works, and (hopefully!) tell us what they do better. What’s New? Read More...

Unbounce’s Fall ShipIt Day

ShipIt Day is when the staff at Unbounce are invited to put aside their regular, daily responsibilities and work on anything that interests them. These projects don’t need to be related to their area of work, or even be Unbounce related at all. ShipIt Day has only one rule – you must be able to demo what you worked on at the end of the day. To this end, we Read More...

[Time-lapse] Unbounce Chalk Murals

Last Friday during our Open House, more than a few people were asking about our chalk mural. It’s pretty cool but is an often overlooked feature of our office. Realizing that about half of our quickly-growing team probably haven’t seen these videos, I thought it’d be nice to unearth them for your viewing pleasure. In April 2012, Carter, Oli and Denis got together to craft our very first office chalk Read More...

Using our Product to Hire Great People

‘Eat your own dog food,’ ‘drink your own Kool-Aid – or champagne.’ Are all common buzzwords amongst technology startups. At Unbounce, we mean it – and take it pretty seriously. 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...

Say Hello to our new Director of Engineering, Geoff Webb

Unbounce’s development team has been led by our fearless leader Carl Schmidt since day one. As CTO he has steered product decisions, worked tirelessly on expanding our infrastructure and been hands on with hiring new team members. Now in our 4th year, it is time for him to pass the torch of some of his operational role to our newest Unbouncer and Director of Engineering, Geoff Webb. A little bit about Read More...
