Company Description:

Why work at Storybird?

Technically, we’re building a real-time publishing platform with the same challenges as Twitter, Tumblr, and Pinterest. We have dozens of heady, challenging projects and features.

Aesthetically, our environment is visually rich with beautiful assets: art, stories, and an elegant UI. What do you want your code attached to?

Intellectually, the platform gives voice to writers and artists around the world and operates at the fundamentals of imagination and literacy. That can’t be bad.

Practically, we’re a seasoned team with an unfussy work style and a commitment to great chocolate. (We’re a bit biased towards dark chocolate, but milk-chocolate lovers are welcome too.)
