FEEL FOR THE COMPANY

First, we are a diverse and global team. That means difference and openness. We thrive through this difference. We work in different time zones, so our process is heavily based on async communication, with a few weekly meetings. Weekly meetings camera on, ready to rock, and make those meetings efficient and to the point. That being said, the group of people working together on a feature/product will often meet together as a self-organized meeting to jam out about the product and find ways to deliver an improved solution.
