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.
Typical Roles at eSailors
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
