Weekly sprints with very little overhead. A meeting Monday morning and a demo on Friday afternoon. All teams at Lorem (not just engineering) are run this way.

We use Clubhouse as our product management software. CircleCI for continuous deployment from GitHub branches.

Engineers work closely with our product manager & design team to prioritize and design which features to build.
