    Skyscanner Engineering Principles:

    We have a clear definition of success for every piece of work

    We ship multiple times a day and deliver customer value week in, week out.

    We use design reviews to validate every significant change

    We deliver our products using our defined technology standards

    We peer review every change

    We cover all changes with automated tests, responsibly

    Our definitions of done include being live in production... responsibly

    You build it, you run it

    We own and are responsible for the data we produce

    Most importantly, these are organic beliefs. We iterate. We learn. We grow. And our principles adapt with us.
