Engineering team and processes

We have a 2-person engineering team in charge of three platforms as well as the backend APIs and infrastructure. We work closely with our product manager and designer to define the roadmap and spec out the features. Our sprint is normally two-weeks long and will result in a mobile app update or web deployment.

Technical Challenges

Projects you might work on
  • Build a recommendation engine and related dashboard to test out various algorithms and visualize the results.

  • Work with product manager and designer to push the iOS app forward in features and optimizing its workflow.

  • Study user behavior on web to see how it is different from mobile and use the result to build an unique web experience.
