Engineering at Yubo

Engineering team and processes

Our engineering team operates on one/two-week cycles. Each cycle begins with a meeting to discuss time estimates for features, design presentation, technologies to use and ends with a demo meeting where each engineer can show off the work they've completed. Engineers work typically with a designer and any other interested parties to spec a feature, then work on the feature individually. We use Pull Requests on GitHub to conduct code reviews. All engineers are also empowered to push code to production, which we often do multiple times.

Technical Challenges
