Beautiful code makes beautiful books

We're a group of tinkerers, makers, hackers, and programming language enthusiasts. And we love beautiful books as much as we love beautiful code.

We believe in testing early and testing often. We pride ourselves in the fact that our teams work closely together to deliver the tightest product possible.

You'll find us playing music, programming Arduinos, futzing with 3D printers, playing with photography, and writing fiction in our free time.

 


Diligence to craft

If you're passionate
about clean code, SOLID objects, and TDD, then you’ll feel at home here at Blurb. We practice Continuous Integration, diligent code reviews, and pair programming, and we have a strong commitment to refactoring.

We’re big proponents of Agile and Kanban—we’ve even gotten the entire organization to embrace the methodology enthusiastically (just ask Marketing).

 


Our Toolkit

We’ve built (and continue to enhance, improve, and iterate) a comprehensive indie publishing platform. So we’re always exploring the technologies that can help us deliver the best possible end product.

Ruby on Rails

Engineers are social too
