💪 How we work
We follow agile practices, delivering improvements iteratively in small chunks. We track the impact of our work and measure ourselves on results, not the amount of code written.
We’re growing fast, and are focused on building a well designed, scalable & robust platform. In some areas of the work (e.g. payment processing) there is very little margin for error.
Our technology platform is built in Ruby on Rails, and we also use a bunch of AWS services (via Terraform), Postgres, Docker, and a little bit of React.
We have automated tests, continuous deployment, and release to production multiple times per day.
We review each others code, and set aside time for hacking on experimental features, refactoring and/or learning new things.
We work hard and finish on time, no crazy hours.
