    Engineering is a core focus on what we do. At Phantom we encourage collaboration across all disciplines and we really love when our team is proactive and lead new initiatives. Everyone is encouraged to suggest improvements to how we work; sometimes improvements come from changing process and sometimes through internal projects such as:

    Jumbotron - a UI to control our big display screen in the office including scheduling.
    Lighthouse Dashboard - a dashboard of sites Lighthouse performance scores.
    Node Module Dashboard - a dashboard of node dependencies in our projects and if any are outdated/insecure.
    KSDL - a way to define CMS schemas in code & automatically generate serializers based on them.
    Jukebox - a jukebox which will play music based on the tastes of people currently in the office.
