Our Engineering Philosophy:

  • DevOps - We want developers to have insight and ownership over code in production, integration tools, infrastructure, and deployment process. Developers should always ask what it takes to support their systems/code in production. We value The Phoenix Project as a reference guide.
  • Product Efficiency is achieved upstream - The further down the development pipeline we have to fix bugs or rework features, the more expensive it is.
  • Small, Cross-Functional Teams - QA, Dev, Design, CI, and Product working on a focused and shared vision.
  • Complexity - It's easy to make something complex, but difficult to make it simple. We should always be fighting complexity. Can we deprecate systems/code? Do it. Does the system need to be that complicated? Do we build vs buy?
  • Small Batch Sizes - Constantly work towards shorter release cycles as a means to shore up quality, help make sure we are working on the right things at the right time, stabilize operations, and cut down on waste.
  • Performance matters - We value engineers that know not to over optimize solutions, but always think how code will perform at expected scale.
  • Minimum Process Necessary - We strive to be pragmatic. Some process is necessary, but don’t forget the fundamentals of Agile.
  • Managing Technical Debt - The vast majority of work is maintenance. Engineers need to have practical philosophies on refactoring. We like the theory of Broken Windows, YAGNI, and refactor as you go. We appreciate Clean Code, Working Effectively with Legacy Code, and Pragmatic Programmer as reference guides.
  • Data Driven - Let’s use the data to help inform what to work on, what is causing performance issues, who is using our features... Ultimately it's the objective plus the narrative that produces great product.

Our Data Principles:

  • Accurate and Dependable - When people trust your data, they’ll use it
  • Accessible - When people can easily access the data they need, they’ll use it
  • Actionable - When data is relevant and useful, it will get used
  • Democratized - When people can answer their own questions, they’ll do it
  • Flexible - When people can dive deep to find answers, they’ll do it
  • Secure - When people know your data is secure, they’ll use it
  • Used - Above all, when people truly use data to inform decisions, that’s success

Benefits and Perks:

  • 100% company paid medical plan for employees with buy-up options as well as dental and vision insurance for employees (dependent coverage available)
  • $1,200/year fitness reimbursement to purchase any items related to healthy living
  • 3 weeks of PTO for all new hires. Increases in PTO at various years of service
  • 4 week paid sabbatical for all employees after 7 years of employment
  • Stocked kitchen with snacks and drinks
  • Dog friendly office
  • Music Studio for all to practice, jam, and record
  • subscription 
  • Corporate discounts on gym memberships and top-brand gear
  • On-site workout area access: treadmill, bike trainers, rowers, and full weight lifting gym with CrossFit equipment, with changing rooms and showers and towel service
  • Flexible work schedule in a culture of trust with the option of working remotely
