We work together as a team and our engineers never work in silos.  Cross-team collaboration is the key ingredient to our success. As an engineer at Bowtie, you will be participating in meetings with different stakeholders and a cross-functional project team from early on in the product development process. This is to make sure that engineering challenges / barriers will be uncovered and discussed at an early stage of design/decision making. We are on a constant search for better ways to operate. At the moment, we are exploring the benefit of the 6-week sprint cycle from Basecamp. But we are always happy to take on new suggestions and discover alternative options. We are a lean team, but we have built / are building some big softwares that take other hundreds of engineers and years to build. If you are looking to join a multi-award winning team (HKICT Fintech Award Winner of 2017, Insurance Award 2019, just to name a few) that has been featured and recognised by tech companies, such as AWS, get in touch today!
