We appreciate this historic opportunity for the national gun control conversation to be taking place right here in our home state.

***** UPDATE ON JULY 14 EVENT******UGE PRESS RELEASE*****

Event July 11, 2018

We wanted to let  you know that the March For Our Lives Event has been canceled again.   We are doing our best to keep you informed and up to date as these changes occur.  

UGE Co-Owner, Sam Robinson, has just put out the Press Release below.   Please read and please share this with our community!    We need to get this information out.  Thank you for your support! Please share.

PRESS RELEASE

July 11, 2018 for Immediate Release

With MegaPlex Cancellation, Utah Gun Exchange welcomes March For Our Lives / Road to Change, to Utah and to use its facilities

UtahGunExchange.com is concerned to hear that March For Our Lives SLC has had to cancel its event due to the loss of their venue.  We respect the rights of private property owners, the Larry H. Miller Group, and MegaPlex Theatres to determine how their property is utilized.  We also recognize the First Amendment rights that allow us to engage each other in civil dialogue.

We reaffirm our invitation to the March For Our Lives team to Utah.  We have a facility that can accommodate the March For Our Lives event, and it’s ready to go.  As it has been claimed that there are threats from “outside groups” of “escalation” – escalation which we do not condone – we are happy to add value to our original offer and pay for additional security to ensure safe and peaceful dialogue at our location.  We want safe students.  We want safe schools.  We support everyone’s Constitutional right to peaceably assemble and we will do everything we can to ensure that March For Our Lives can assemble safely.

Furthermore – we have been miscategorized by some local media outlets as a counter-protest to this Town Hall event.   We have had many successful interactions with March For Our Lives, and we were invited to their event specifically by them.  Accordingly, we have encouraged our community to attend this important discussion peacefully and to show our support for the common goal of keeping our children safe in schools.  We appreciate March For Our Lives inviting us to their public event and are happy to engage in all dialogue that will help us move towards that common goal.

March For Our Lives team – please contact us at workwithus@utahgunexchange.com to coordinate as quickly as possible so we can assure your event’s location.  If our location doesn’t meet your needs, we hope your invitation for us to attend your event remains open to continue the productive dialogue that we have had with you around the country as was the case today in Kissimmee, Florida with the National Producer for The March For Our Lives.

🔫🇺🇸 ***UPDATED! NEW INFO****Join Utah Gun Exchange on July 14🇺🇸🔫

Event July 6, 2018

UPDATED! NEW INFO: ADDRESS CHANGE!


WHAT: Call for  Second Amendment Community to Join with UGE @  March For Our Lives Event

WHEN: SATURDAY, JULY 14  4:30 PM – 7:30 PM

WHERE: Megaplex Theatres  3761 W Parkway Plaza Dr. South Jordan, UT

Click here for directions via Google Maps: https://goo.gl/maps/BLN5exd8NUT2

DETAILS:  The March For our Lives group is back in SLC for a second event.  Please join UGE as we seek to work with all groups to find sensible solutions for the safety of our children and communities.   This is a spectacular stage to demonstrate our unity in support of common sense school safety improvement measures.

UGE will set up in the parking lot in front of the Megaplex Theaters at 4:30 PM. Please come out and show your support for keeping our children safe and protecting the Second Amendment! Pick up a free UGE T Shirt and a cold bottle of water.  Meet and speak with Sam Robinson, Co-Owner of UGE and other UGE Staff and like-minded community members. Then proceed to the Megaplex Theaters  to listen to the March For Our Lives panel discussion on Gun Reform.

When facing the front of the Theatre, go to the right of the Main Door Entrance and you will see another door labeled “Event Lobby”.  Please enter here and proceed to the second floor; the discussion will be held in the meeting room on this floor.

The March For Our Lives Panel Discussion begins @ 6:00 PM and ends at 7:30 PM.  The MFOL group has changed this to a ticketed event.  Tickets are still free but there is a limited number of seats.   Please click on the link for a ticket.     https://www.eventbrite.com/e/march-for-our-lives-town-hall-tickets-47978589252

If you are not able to get a ticket, we encourage you to come anyway!   It is likely that  the Press will be there and we need to have a strong showing of Second Amendment Supporters, even if you cannot get in to the discussion.   Some members of the UGE Staff will remain in the parking lot during the event to visit with community members; we invite you to come and mingle with us and speak with Sam!  Look for our UGE Canopy!  We will see you Saturday! 

We are asking all attendees to please be respectful of the Megaplex space and conduct yourself appropriately should you choose to arrive early. There will be bag checks at the door, and firearms will not be allowed in to the venue. Reserved seating will be available in the front for high school students. (This is straight from MFOL information, NOT UGE).    Please wear a white shirt if you can (you can wear your free UGE Shirt!).  The MFOL group will be wearing mostly black/dark blue, red or orange…. Let’s stand out!

Sam Robinson & Bryan Melchior, co-owners of Utah Gun Exchange and UGETube.com encourage everyone to make this a priority event for your  weekend planning.   Let’s make sure the Nation knows that Utahans love and support our children and their safety, along with the Second Amendment,  and we  believe we can work together with all groups to find solutions!

Technology Department – Lead Developer, Technical Adminstrators

Work with us April 9, 2018

We’re excited to announce that with the expansion of our site comes the expansion of opportunities to work with our team!

LEAD DEVELOPER

UtahGunExchange.com is looking to hire a lead developer to help manage its growing community of websites, including  UtahGunExchange.com and UGETube.com.  The right individual will have 10+ years of programming experience, capabilities to lead a dev team including managing scrums and completing day-to-day development tasks, and will be excited to take on the role of facilitating the growing vision of UGE and its initiatives in a leadership and tactical role while working with the leadership team, including direct reports to UGE’s CTO.

Tech stack is currently PHP, WordPress, and Python, but the right dev will be able to master technology as needed to facilitate the right development goals and be excited to support a user base of 100,000+ on the various platforms we create as they continue to be implemented at a rapid rate.  We already have a team working on all these initiatives, but we need a leader to help during the day, each day, to turn these visions into a reality.

Video encoding, algorithmic content serving, HA and full redundancy with zero-downtime…this is the fun stuff, and it’s fun to be able to offer a chance to the right candidate to have their dream job in an environment that already is continuously integrated with a dev team and sysadmin team hard at work at supporting us and a tech executive to handle the business side for you in place. 🙂

Pay is DOE, but highly competitive.  Please act quickly if you or someone you know is interested — we are moving to find the right candidate ASAP — by emailing your resume to nick.jessen@utahgunexchange.com.

TECHNICAL ADMINISTRATOR (X2)

Additionally, our team is looking for two additional technical administrators to join our admin team.  The role of a technical administrator is to QA, support and configure systems, including our own systems of UtahGunExchange.com and UGETube.com, and third party systems such as ZenDesk, email clients, etc.  IT experience preferred, but not 100% necessary — attention to detail, a technical acumen, and a willingness to research and solve problems and to work hard to understand the technologies available to support our customer service team and community is paramount.  If you’re a technical person looking for an entry-level IT/dev position, this is absolutely perfect for you.

Looking for full-time personnel — salary starts at $30,000+ annually, DOE as an entry-level position — but if you’re a strong candidate or a student needing more flexibility, please send a resume to nick.jessen@utahgunexchange.com and we’ll see if we can make an exception.

Thanks all!  Even if you’re not the right candidate, if you know someone, please share so we can find the right people to join our cause!

Thanks again!

Sincerely,
UGE Tech Team
