A little bit about our engineering culture

We love finding new ways to shorten the feedback loops, create together and make an impact. To do so, our engineering culture and practices are based on eXtreme Programming (XP), Domain-Driven Design, Lean and Continuous Delivery.

We believe that the assumption behind the “Speed vs Quality” mindset is flawed and that you can both have your cake and eat it too. For us, quality enables speed. Not in 2 years, but now.

Co-creating together with others through Pair and Mob programming helps us deliver more value sooner and find joy in our work by seeking productive human connections with others.

We find that engineers seeking to understand our product and business better understand the context of their work, which helps them to innovate, deliver more value to their customers and find more purpose in their work.

  • Design, write and release software as a solution to an end-to-end problem in your business domain and deliver value in small batches in accordance with our engineering standards
  • Understand scalability & complexity of your services and own & innovate the entire SDLC
  • Mentor and inspire other engineers and continually optimize your team’s practices to develop it into a self-organized, continuously improving unit
  • Critically question and simplify our tech org systems/processes and solutions

Note: On top of very good technical skills, this role requires someone willing to assume end-to-end ownership of a specific area/initiative and thrives on emphasizing with their user pains/desires/needs.
