My First Week At Storify

Last week I joined Storify — a destination for curated social media news. Storify helps you sort through the noise to find the voices online that matter. To find more about Storify take a look at the guided tour.

Storify co-founder Burt and I met a couple months ago for the first time and I’m glad that we did. There were three main reasons for me to come on board: great team, awesome product and company vision, and cool tech stack that I’m passionate about: Node.js+Express+MongoDB.

The first week at Storify exceeded my expectations! So far there were: 4 team lunches, one birthday party, two (!) break-ins. In addition, I’ve worked on the front-page on my second day and had a chance to SSH to production servers.

A few word about the office, besides free snacks and espresso and being close to everything, there are two other startups, Buffer and HomeLight. The funny thing is that I’ve discovered and fallen in love with Buffer just a few weeks ago and now I’ve met with Leo and sit next to their brilliant team!

By the way, Storify is hiring bright minds: Operations Engineer and Front-End Engineer. If you want to do work on interesting things check out full job description.
