Who and what is Grabyo?

Our commitment to growth
Recognised as a top 50 scale up by CityAM and selected as part of the 2017 UpscaleUK program by TechCityUK, Grabyo is growing at scale. We are looking to increase the size of our development and engineering teams. We are currently hiring Backend Developers, DevOps Engineers, Data Engineers, Security Engineers and Software Engineering interns to join our already outstanding workforce.
Our current team consists of CTO, VP Engineering, Software Architect, Product Owner, 6 Full-Stack Back-End Engineers, 4 Front-End Developers, 2 DevOps Engineer, 3 Video Engineer, Android Developer, iOS Developer and an R&D Engineer.
The tech team is structured into multiple teams working on all features at the same time with a flexible and agile approach where every week you might be placed on a different team or feature. We follow Agile methodologies with daily standups and a strong culture of trust. We believe that scrum masters are there to make sure engineers have the tools they need and support the team delivering the project.
A fun, social, work culture
As important as the team we build is the culture we create. Grabyo employees pride themselves on the close bonds they form through the workplace as Grabyo supports staff both in and outside of work hours with:
- Sponsored monthly social events and team lunches
- Friday happy hour
- Daily lunchtime games (card & PlayStation games)
- Play Station tournaments
- Football games for all levels
And the occasional Friday evening trip to the pub!
Key New Product Launches: 2019
The demand for more flexible, scalable tools for digital-first live streams has driven the demand for key new product launches for 2019
Producer: Live video production in the cloud
The Producer platform will enable customers to create digital live streams in the cloud which are integrated with Grabyo Studio for editing and live streaming to multiple social accounts.
Easy Editing: Simplified Cloud Video Editing
The existing real-time clip sharing capability within Grabyo will be extended to support more complex video edits, quick highlights and more advanced editing for social video production.
Data Integrations and AI: Editing automation in the cloud
One of the key benefits of building a cloud-based video platform is the ability to integrate third-party data sources to enhance the information available for users and to drive meta-data, search and automation. This capability will include artificial intelligence and machine learning capabilities to drive automation.
If technology gets you going in the morning, then you are in the right place!
From the get-go, you will be working on features that matter and bring benefits to the company - you will be shipping code into production in no time.
Innovation is part of our culture too. Not only do we build innovative products for our clients, but we also encourage our engineers to be innovative with our tech too. Keeping up to date with the latest innovations in video engineering and software development is part of our success.
All this innovation can’t happen without a culture of constant learning, collaboration. Our engineers are always learning new technologies/methodologies to solve their daily challenges. To help this process with have different processes in place to support the development of skills regularly. These are a few examples:
Personal development budget
We strongly believe in our engineers as they are at the core of our success. Without a great team of engineers, you can't build a good product. For that reason, we have personal development budget per employee that they can use to go to conferences, meetups or online courses. Anything that makes them a better engineer makes Grabyo a better company.
Tech hours on Wednesday
Every Wednesday we allocate an hour of the whole tech team’s diary to allow members of the team to share knowledge. This could be a current project they are working on or the latest tech they have been playing around with.
We love tech, and we love to have fun. For this reason, we try to organize optional hackathons twice a year. This is an event that lasts 24h and is the perfect opportunity to geek around with the latest tech that everyone wants to play around with whilst having lots of junk food!
Mentors and regular performance reviews
We are proud of having a higher than average employee retention rate. This is because of the effort we put into making our employees happy and engaged in their work. New joiners will get assigned a mentor that will guide them in their career progression. Mentors will have regular performance reviews with you to ensure you are growing in your role at the pace you want and more importantly, ensuring you are happy while doing it.
