Central to everything we build is the engineers, designers and product owners behind it. We're a big family with people from all kinds of backgrounds, ages, personalities and career goals. Each team has their own way of working, socializing and require different things to keep everybody happy. We play to the strengths and goals of each individual and give our teams common grounds but leave room for them to work in the way that works best for them.We believe that transparency leads to a more inclusive workplace and better decision making. Everyone shares their progress and plans across our entire force - from management, acquisition and hiring all the way to design, tech and product. We're all on a first name basis and new ideas and the next project more often than not come from our frontline engineers. We try to keep our teams between 4-6 people to be able to work efficient and agile. This way we can help each other when need be, work together and deliver. All in a scrum based setting with daily stand ups and clear sprints.
