Engineering at Peek
Engineering team and processes

Our team works in two-week sprints. We start the sprint with a planning session, we have daily standups every morning and the sprint ends with a sprint review and retrospective. We do demos every week - product demos at the end of the sprint and tech demos on the week in-between. Engineers collaborate closely with product managers, designers, QA and DevOps engineers. Engineers will work on projects together or solo, and sometimes engineers will pair program. Every code change goes through a peer review and gets regression-tested through test automation. We release multiple times a day. Engineers have a lot of influence over the tools and technologies we use.

Technical Challenges

-Making sure orders and payments are processed reliably. -Managing an ever-growing SaaS product and the complex architecture and code base that come with it. -Being able to trace and debug transactions in a highly distributed environment.

Projects you might work on
  • Real-time availability - Is this tour or rental product available for this number of people at this specific time including all the resources required to fulfill the order?

  • Next-generation eCommerce infrastructure - Our new order management and payment processing service to handle the next level of use cases and scale.

  • Integration projects - Allowing customers to book tours, activities and rentals managed in Peek through Yelp, Expedia, TripAdvisor, Google, etc.

  • Peek Checkout - Peek's Point-of-Sale system allowing operators to quickly book large amounts of people onto their tours or rental products.
