How We Work
Our primary application is a classic Ruby on Rails codebase, with a little bit of React.js mixed in. The data warehouse is built around Redshift, with a variety of sources and tools including Airflow, Stitch, Segment, and AWS Lambda. We follow Agile Scrum methodology, but aren’t dogmatic about it - it just happens to work well for us. We track sprints in JIRA, have brief but effective daily stand-ups, and review each other’s code on Github.
We’ve worked hard to build a culture of collaboration, respect, and mutual support. We load-balance when needed and without judgement; we attend conferences and present new ideas, technologies and tools to each other as we discover them. We work smart enough to avoid late nights and long work weeks, but we don’t shy away from putting in extra hours when a critical mission requires it. We take time off to recharge when we need to.
