We believe that starting with the people is the way to build effective and healthy teams.
  • Process: Implement and improve our development processes and technical practices. We're sticklers for optimization, if it can be done better, we strive to find that method. You will lead engineering team meetings to plan and prioritize work, run retrospectives to identify improvements, define policies to improve communication, collaboration, and quality.
