About Story Terrace

STORYTERRACE IS THE LEADING PERSONAL BIOGRAPHER SERVICE.

ABOUT STORYTERRACE

At StoryTerrace we create memories. Meaningful and personalised memories.

Imagine the moment you give your parents or your grandparents a gift for their 60th birthday. And that’s a book about their life, their biography, their life stories . A beautiful, hard bound book, which is written by a professional biographer, which contains pictures and captures wonderful life memories.

Imagine also giving a wedding gift to your best friend. Written collaboratively on our new automated StorryTerrace platform, called the StoryStarter. With contribution from yourself and your circle of common friends who share stories , memories and pictures, see the book being brought together in a beautiful, hard bound copy, delivered to you, so that you can give it in person at the wedding.

That’s what we do at StoryTerrace – we create beautiful memories. Through software technology and content writing. In a fun, collaborative and cost effective way.

Established in 2014, we are a leading personalised biography platform. Led by founders who are serial entrepreneurs, and backed by credible investors who have been involved in companies like Apple, Klarna, WH Smith, we are growing at 300%. We are a team of 11 people supported by 350 biographers, and are already in the UK, the Netherlands and the USA. We need more great people to help us take the company to the next level.

So, come and join us – and help make wonderful memories for thousands of people!

Our tech stack

At StoryTerrace, we are after engineers who thrive on being at the top of their discipline. Who are smart and can solve problems. Who enjoy working in a collaborative and fun loving team and building something meaningful and interesting.

Specifically, we are after engineers who can help us continue to build and refine further our new StoryStarter technology platform , which enables friends and family to write a book together in a collaborative and social way, which is then pulled together, printed and delivered automatically.

While our core tech stack is based around Node.JS and MySQL, we love working with smart engineers who can bring solutions, rather than focus on language specific developers.

If this sounds exciting, let’s have a chat!
