    • Our architecture is microservice-oriented using AMQP.

    • We have many cross-team guilds where we share knowledge, coordinate efforts, and help each other the best we can.
    • “20% time”- everyone gets one day a week to invest as they see fit (i.e. learn something new, experiment with new ideas in the product, join efforts with others, improve what you think matters, ...).
