Engineering at Canary Technologies

Engineering team and processes

We operate on a weekly cycle. We start the week with a pre-sprint planning on what needs to be done this week.

Because we're growing, our weekly sprints to get interrupted by requests from high profile customers. We're open to this interruption because it is in the long-term benefit of the company.

It's great to have amazing customers and it's very important for us to go the extra mile in the early days to serve them.

Technical Challenges

There are three sets of challenges in the upcoming years:

  1. Continue building software that helps hotels manage their guests.

  2. Global presence. This doesn't just mean internationalization, it might mean distributed systems with country specific hosting.

  3. Scaling the core. We've grown faster than we could handle and there will be infrastructure and scaling challenges that lie ahead.

Projects you might work on
  • Removing dependency on form software and building a custom form builder in house.

  • Building a chat bot that automatic replies to guest questions for the hotel.

  • A prediction algorithm that tells hotels who the most important guests are (VIPs) and which guests might be fraudsters.

Working at Canary Technologies

We believe in grinding in the short-term, with always an eye on the longer term vision.

Diversity and Inclusion

We build for the traveler community and by definition this is a diverse audience. We strive to have gender and racial balance on the team.

We treat everyone like a family member. We start off as colleagues and become friends. We think work is important, but we believe people's lives are most important so we try to relate to folks fully.

We don't have anything specific at the moment.
