Why You'll Love Working Here

We care a great deal about code quality. We often go back and improve core parts of the codebase to make it better or more lean. We can do this because of great test coverage which will immediately sound the alarm when something goes wrong.

We ship on quality instead of on time. When a feature is ready we deploy it immediately to everyone or use an internal system to roll it out to a certain percentage of customers. Various teams deploy new code many times throughout the day.
