Our platform integrates with the major social platforms - including Facebook, Instagram, Periscope, Twitter, and YouTube. Grabyo is also a preferred global partner for Facebook Live.

Amazon Web Services is the main hosting provider for Grabyo. Every product of the platform is architected and built for scalability and high availability for a global client base. Being a cloud-based platform allows engineers to remain agile and gives them the freedom to try new things without compromising on reliability and speed of development.

We believe that hiring smart graduates or junior engineers and nurturing them into our culture is the key to our successful growth. To support this strategy, you'll pair with a mentor on your first day at Grabyo. Your mentor will answer your technical doubts daily and will coach you on your career progression by helping you define your own focus within our platform (video, data, front-end, architecture, streaming...) with regular performance evaluations.

We are dedicated to making sure you are happy and committed during your time with Grabyo. We achieve this by pushing the platform and the team to use the latest technologies and to give you a whole new set of responsibilities. You will be responsible for the products you build end to end: from design and architecture to releasing, supporting and monitoring in production. This way you can feel that you are engaged, challenged and more importantly that you can make a difference.

This strategy has allowed the perfect environment to retain our talent and keep our best engineers over time. A good example of this success are some of our current senior engineers such as: our Product Owner and our Lead Software Architect. They started on Grabyo as graduate engineers and are now key leaders within the organization.

Being social is a huge part of the Grabyo family. We like to have fun together and we provide a series of activities to help in this area. If you are interested in these activities and some of the benefits we enjoy at Grabyo, please visit this website.
