Engineering at Down Dog

Engineering team and processes

Our team operates on 3-4 week sprints (we call it 'life tabata'). A tabata starts with us each listing what we're going to accomplish. After each sprint we take a company wide 1 week vacation, followed by a 1 week ease-in period where we work on whatever we want. We use GitHub for PRs and code reviews, and all engineers push code to production, usually multiple times per day.

Technical Challenges
  • Stitching together new workouts (video, audio instruction, music) and streaming them within seconds to hundreds of thousands of users
    • Building a voice activated video recording studio
    • Kotlin multiplatform to share view controller code across iOS, Android, and Web

The projects we've listed are 3 of the potential projects you'll start with as our lead mobile engineer:

Projects you might work on
  • Build the interface for customizing which muscle groups/injury zones to avoid in a yoga practice

  • Build a library for pose & workout discovery

  • Build the UI for enhanced playlist customization
