Our Engineering Team

The CMG engineering team consists of domain experts who work collaboratively within a culture of cross-domain knowledge sharing. We value engineers who are passionate about modern technologies and best practices. Our engineers are willing to challenge the status-quo and are constantly seeking improvement and efficiency in our code-base and platform. CMG engineers are empowered to explore solutions and bring recommendations to the table. We’re in a period of making impactful engineering decisions. As part of our process, we believe in taking the time for research and prototyping - this is critical in making the right decisions.  

Given the experience of our team, we have naturally adopted best practices from local development, through code review and into production rollouts. Pull requests, test automation, code coverage tracking, containerization, one-click deployments, and our planning process are just some of the foundational components for those best practices.
