Our Engineering team team lives by their code:
• We do thorough code reviews using GitHub pull requests. We aim for high code quality with a lightweight process.
• We practice rapid iteration - if it’s been reviewed and makes production better, deploy to production.
• Before coding, we sweat the details and edge cases, debate the design, and disagree openly.
• We use the best tools money can buy, and focus on solving real problems for customers, not re-inventing the wheel.
• We have a growth mindset and consider growth a part of every engineer's job, with dedicated investment time and resources to match.
