Our Platform Engineering team includes 30+ contributors spread across five teams: Design, Mobile, Platform, POS, and White Label. We take pride in the utility of the products we have built and the craftsmanship of their implementations. On the Platform team, we embrace a flat hierarchy and pair junior developers with more senior mentors. Small pods often form to tackle high-priority projects, all of which benefit from thorough testing and code review.
Curious about current projects?
Here are some of the challenges that drive development for the Platform team:
* How can we improve the security of our systems without placing extra burdens on end users? * When will our system reach its breaking point? What must be done now to push back that date? * How do we keep our development cycles fast while improving reliability?
