Our management come from different engineering disciplines who have strong trust in their product engineering team.

Our aim is to build a culture that promotes understanding of the entire platform as well as being able to contribute anywhere in the stack.

  • How many people are on the team?

At the time of writing, there is 10 of us.

  • How do you handle working hours? Do you use time tracking?

We usually come in for the standup, otherwise we are pretty flexible.

  • What does the office environment look like? What hardware will I be using?

We are based in WeWork (Old Street for now). We use Apple hardware which will be provided based on your preference. Well-being is of utmost importance to us. You will see sports equipment around the office, a juice maker, and you will be able to use quiet space to recharge batteries.

  • How do people usually dress at the office? Does the team go out for lunch together?

Casual, there is no dress code. And yes, of course!
