Our Culture

We care deeply about our culture and everyone in the team plays their own unique role towards shaping it. In life, people spend a lot of time working.

The office environment becomes a second home and the team you work with becomes a second family. We care for and support each other no matter what. We work hard and we play hard, together.

The leadership of our business is run by developers and so there are no suits dictating how things should be run. Finally there is a place that understands the developers' plight - and it doesn't exist here.

Our Engineering Processes

It differs per product and per team. Each have their own way to best manage what needs to be delivered. However, let's throw in some buzz words here to fill the slot.

We love agile, scrum, kanban. We definitely believe in MVP and design / test driven development.

We use JIRA, Confluence and Slack for managing projects and internal comms. We have built a number of cool Slack bots to give feedback to us and keep things humming along.

Our Hiring Process

It's quite casual. Come in for an interview, let's have a grown-up conversation about who we are, who you are, and whether or not we can do some amazing work together. If we both feel that we are a match then we will make an offer and you're in.
