How We Work
Hybrid work environment: 3 days in-office, 2 days remote per week.
We use a wiki, an issue tracker, and async communication tools and motions to facilitate our SDLC
We follow a flavor of SCRUM (daily standups, refinements when needed, bi-weekly planning and sprint kickoffs, asynchronous demo's and shares, and ad-hoc retros when the teams feel they are required)
We follow a derivative of trunk based development, using main, feature branches and feature flags to facilitate code changes
Test automation is applied pragmatically, expanding over the areas of most value and risk as we grow
Engineering leads and their teams own release definitions, production deployments, and production monitoring
We use Pull Requests to trigger code reviews and feedback on software changes
We write Unit, Functional, and UI automation tests
We follow a production support rotation
Agency - We value individuals who have a strong sense of ownership, are proactive, and curious. We believe in taking initiative, stepping outside of your comfort zone, and continuously seeking to understand the bigger picture
Urgency – Our team operates with a sense of purpose and get-things-done-mentality. We value individuals who can work efficiently and effectively, even when faced with challenges
Quality – We are committed to delivering incredible work, often following best practices, and producing high-quality code with few self-testable bugs
Collaboration - We believe that ideas from the many are greater than those from the one. We work together to find the best solution to problems we face, share knowledge, and support one another in difficult situations
Fun - We believe that time together through hard times and fun times leads to stronger bonds. We try to get out to do team events and activities together such as local sports matches, fantasy football leagues, board games, foosball, picnics, lunches, holiday parties, and more!
