An Insider's view of CityBase

How does your team reward individual success?

We have an awesome rewards platform called Bonusly that allows us to give points to our peers for helping out with things like code reviews,  organizing office events or volunteering for a good cause. The cool thing is we can convert our points into things like Amazon and Chipotle gift cards.

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

With any white-label project you face the problem of what to make configurable and what to make part of the core experience. At CityBase we work every day to identify overlap in our boutique or configured solutions so that we can consolidate features into a more maintainable product without losing meaningful flexibility.
