Engineering at Famous

Engineering team and processes

We have an engineering team that values autonomy, flow, craft, ownership, beautiful design, and low-overhead. We prefer peer mentorship over hierarchical control. By sharing a common value system, and by making sure business priorities are clear, we minimize rigid processes while still doing a good job of having each engineer make like-minded decisions about what to do next and how to do it.

Technical Challenges

On a given day you can expect to work with feature owners to refine designs, architect and implement solutions, and support the team with the day's endeavors. You may be asked to solve a scalability issue in the distributed back-end, architect layering a complex new feature into the existing codebase, or, perhaps, do battle with a mission critical bug in production. As a small team there are many chances for exploration, and many 'hats' that can be worn throughout the day. We value 'flow', so work to limit unnecessary meetings and distractions, while still finding time to keep it fun.
