Engineering at Braze
Engineering team and processes

We’re split broadly across 7 cross-functional product teams - working across SDKs, frontend, backend, internal tools, and data infrastructure. We use github for code reviews, Jenkins for CI, and have 2-week sprints. We do retrospectives after projects and major bugs. We use design docs and Trello for project planning and execution.

Technical Challenges

On the SDK side we build APIs for the world's best apps and websites. They have to be easy to use and high functional; they have to work everywhere and ensure they have minimal footprint. On the frontend, we’re making a tool that is highly functional but also intuitive to use for technical and specialized marketing teams. On the backend, we’re scaling for instrumenting data in real time from hundreds of the worlds most heavily used apps and sites.

Projects you might work on
  • Our Currents product leverages Kafka to create a real-time, bidirectional data stream with our clients.

  • Our geofence functionality enables configuration of client applications with geofences to trigger in-app messages, push notifications, email, and webhooks.

  • Our Canvas project orchestrates any number of messages in a directed acyclic graph that guides users through sophisticated workflows.

  • Our backend processes billions of data points per day in real-time to be leveraged in analytics and messaging features.
