Why we love our office
The location is amazing, surrounded by lots of restaurants and bars with options to grab food, beer or even ice cream outside. It's easy to get there by public transportation, but we also have bike parking spaces. The office is very spacious with comfortable couches, a long dining table where we love chatting, and a fully-equipped kitchen where we visit the snack and drink storage pretty often.

Tech stack and tools we use
Our Back-end is Python, Django and we have some services in Kotlin, our Front-end is React + Redux mainly. The whole system runs on AWS (Lambda, DynamoDB, EC2, ECS, SQS, SNS). We work in SCRUM teams, the backlog is in Jira, the documents are mainly in Confluence. For data warehouses we use Snowflake, and Looker for reports and dashboards. We have lots of senior developers in our teams.
How we work during COVID
When the pandemic hit the world, we changed to a full-remote work environment and we'll stay like this until it's safe to return to the office again. We'll return in hybrid model which means working from the office but also working from home a couple of days a week. Until then, besides work we're having a lot of online gatherings like zoom coffee calls, game nights, and trivia events.
