An Insider's view of Shiftgig

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Collaborating with other teams in the company is a great opportunity. When I need more clarity on a product feature I am developing, my first instinct is to get up and talk to those who will be impacted. By having a simple conversation with a teammate, you can learn so much and make the initial feature idea more valuable.

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

Each quarter, product and engineering steps away from our traditional sprint cycle and participates in a special innovation sprint. We embrace exploring new ideas that could impact the future of Shiftgig. We hold a pitch session, form teams, and a week later, demo our results. Oftentimes, our prototypes and learnings inform our roadmap.

What does your typical day look like?

Each day the product team does a daily check-in to catch up on yesterday’s accomplishments, today’s plans, and any blockers in the way of our goals. Our product development process is centered on close communication with internal and external stakeholders which enables us to discover problems and validate and build solutions effectively every day.
