Engineering at BloomNation
Engineering team and processes

Our team operates using an agile process called Kanban. We meet daily the discuss roadblocks and items we are working on next. We meet weekly to discuss larger project and release planning, and we meet twice a month to team retrospectives to discuss what went well and where we can improve. All code goes through code reviews via pull requests in Github. We use TravisCI for our continuous integration platform, addition to unit tests, code also runs through our selenium test suite.

Technical Challenges

We are in the process of breaking our applications into independent services and automating our deployment pipeline. We have some unique challenges during valentines day and mothers days as our traffic and orders spike to 10x normal load.

Projects you might work on

Working at BloomNation
