Engineering
Full Time
Great engineers have the intuition to successfully execute on a long-term vision with short term deliverables that are at once elegant and pragmatic. Our solutions have to withstand the tests of time and be flexible enough to continue to evolve. The culture of our team informs how we approach product, process and people:

The Importance of Product
ship fast, ship right: the minimum viable change is our mantra
deliver features for real-world use and pay attention to the results
iterate with small improvements to delight our users

The Importance of Process
stay lean and pragmatic: automate, script, orchestrate - but only as much as is needed
the team owns the process: all members contribute to the continued refinement of our
processes
the process itself is a work in progress: continually iterated upon to adjust to changes in the landscape

The Importance of Team
we trust in each other to do their best
no blockers: unblocking someone else will almost always take priority over your own work
