Engineering at Joy
Engineering team and processes

Our engineering team operates on two week cycles. Each cycle begins with a meeting to discuss time estimates for features. We have demo and drinks each week on Friday where everyone showcases the work they have completed.

Engineers work with Designers and if the feature involves multiple Engineers then a PM is involved to handle the coordination too.

We use standard PR model with Git (BitBucket). JIRA is used for bug tracking.

All engineers are empowered to take their features to production, which we do multiple times a week.

Technical Challenges

We are buidling a product which is used in 120 countries by millions of users. Scale and performance is something which we need to very deeply care.

We are also using machine learning that needs to learn a lot of things related to weddings around the world.

Projects you might work on
  • Messaging and Communication hub which allows hundreds of thousands of users to communicate with each other on daily basis

  • iOS and Android apps which will help plan a wedding from engagement to honeymoon

  • Guest management, invitation and RSVP systems. Think of this as replacing excel sheet, physical invitation cards and things like survey monkey or google forms.
