How We Work - Our Engineering Culture

Joining our growing engineering team now will give you the opportunity to work at enterprise scale on truly business-critical problems – although we’re a small company thus far, we have a serious impact on huge customers.

You'll have the chance to work with:

  • Cross-functional teams across data science, engineering (platform, data & front-end), product, customer success and end users enabling us to discover, prototype and build rapidly.
  • Fortnightly Scrum sprints with daily stand-ups, weekly demos and fortnightly retrospectives that encourage lean ways of thinking and continuous iteration.
  • Autonomous technical teams. Through regular architecture, refactor and backlog triage sessions, you will shape our future product architecture by defining how components integrate to create a system that is scalable, secure, robust and performant.
  • An environment that values and encourages learning, knowledge sharing and personal development by getting involved in and organising meet-ups, conferences, internal brown-bag session and more. Our technical functions regularly get together in working groups to discuss a range of topics from architecture to engineering practices and tooling.
