Think big and output-driven

Our Team Structure

Most projects in our company are processed in cross-functional product teams. New products usually start with a vision and ideas initiated by a Product Manager. In a discovery phase, UX/Design/Development will then create prototypes which are going to be tested on real customers. Based on the results, our new product will be designed and developed. Everything happens in-house with all team members working in the same room, participating in all stages of the project.

Some snippets of our tech manifesto.

We prefer cross functional product teams over siloed knowledge

We prefer to scale systems not teams

We know that perfection is the enemy of the good.

We prefer automation and continuous delivery over manual build and deploy

We prefer open source over commercial/enterprise software

We treat reliability, system security and business continuity as a top priority to ensure safety of our customers and our business

We prefer building micro services over monoliths

We avoid premature optimization

We prefer to innovate and make things better everyday (systems, services code, processes, jobs, productivity, etc.) rather than administrate the status quo
