What to Expect
- Teams (or “Pods”) are made up of Engineering, Product, and Design. These functions work very closely with tight feedback loops to deliver features.
- You will participate in product and feature building alongside the rest of the team. Working and pairing with other devs to deploy features to production. You'll participate in planning and estimating sprints.
- While we recognize we all have our strengths and bring different experiences to the table, we view ourselves as full stack engineers. This means that we shouldn't be afraid to pick up the next ticket, and if it is something you don't have as much experience with, a great opportunity to pair!
- We take mentoring seriously. We want to maintain a culture of learning, and bring talented developers onto the team with a growth mindset. We want to make sure that you continually grow as a developer (and hopefully a person too). We will commit to giving you all the tools you need to be successful, all you have to do is commit to coming in, taking on the challenge, and growing with us.
