Engineering at Heymarket
Engineering team and processes

We only have 2 meetings a week: a single sprint planning meeting on Monday (where we go over what we'll each be working on) and a company overview meeting on Friday (where the CEO go over the state of the business).

Daily standup is done over Slack at 10am. Most collaboration is done in-person, with Slack, or Zoom. Github wikis are used to document major features and endpoints. People can use either Github issues or Asana tasks for tracking work.

New features begin with a whiteboarding session with engineering, design, and product. We go over customer requirements, technical considerations, and the UX. From there, engineering begins working on the feature while design/product work on high fidelity mock-ups. We strive to build MVPs for internal usage, iterate and release to a private beta, and finally release to customers once we're satisfied with the quality/UX.

Technical Challenges

Building a platform that support multiple client apps (web, iOS, Android) at scale. For example, as we build new features, it's important that each client app/instance can support it in a performant way.

Projects you might work on
  • Enhance and add cross-platform ML to Heymarket. Based on message intent, predict and surface actions for a business use to take.

  • Enhance built in reports for customers to track usage of messaging within their organization.

  • Ensure the product maintains low latency as we scale from thousands to 10x the number of businesses using it.
