We’re a fast-growing London based start-up with huge ambition. We help small businesses get online and get discovered easily and quickly in a cost-effective way.

What we do

Our state of the art platform allows local businesses to gain exposure to thousands of new local customers, simplifying the way users find and book the right services for them, based on their preferences. We accurately acquire venues and services at speed, to index them so they become searchable and to store them so our marketplace becomes dense with content. We are teaching our machines to learn for themselves, to recognise unique offerings through association.

Our founders, both educated at Harvard Business School, came from successful careers in consulting, private equity and business development to start UENI. They have created an environment that pushes creativity and challenges each member of the team to reach their full potential.

The UENI development team currently consists of 9 developers of varying experience. We are working on a tech stack of Kubernetes, Docker, MySQL, Python3 + Django, and React.

As we aim to provide online presence for "the long tail" of small and micro businesses, much of our work is very data driven. Many of the challenges on the dev team are around this large data set, providing internal tools to other teams to create, interact with, and manipulate this data. We are also delivering the end product to our clients, striving to provide the best digital presence we can which is cost effective and tech savvy on their side (aka automated whenever possible).

Developers are required to interact with the other teams to understand their needs and provide simple, reliable technological solutions. We are fast paced and still discovering what we can do well, and so no developer can expect to be handed simple instructions to implement in a bubble.

On the backend we are in a transition period as we move to a microservice architecture from our original monolith system. Wherever possible, we use a shared django template for these projects so we can start a new project fast and easily understand each other's code.

On the front end our main project is the ueni.com website, including pages for each business owner with a high focus on SEO and usability to give small businesses an easy but effective digital presence and allow new customers to find them. At the same time we provide extra functionality to the business owners to control and see performance stats for their pages. This is implemented in React, Redux and Node for server side rendering.
