Engineering at Everwise
Engineering team and processes

Currently, we do Scrum with weekly sprints, daily stand-ups, GitHub code reviews, direct ownership over features (working with Product), regular lunch & learns. We have around 7 full-stack, 2 dev-ops, 1-2 QA, and 2 services engineers.

Technical Challenges
  • Building out our serverless AWS content infrastructure with personalized recommendations, matching of content to people, matching of people to people (mentors) and other heavy AWS, ElasticSearch, and machine learning problems
  • Complex reporting using complex SQL, Redshift, AWS ETL processes, etc.
  • Large and complex codebase with complex and highly performant React code. We give talks on React in the NYC tech scene.
Projects you might work on
  • Given our upcoming priorities, you would most likely be involved in things like content recommendation, mentor matching algorithm, dynamic learning path creation and other smart, algorithm- and data-heavy back-end code. Technical scalability will be another upcoming priority.
