How we work

Working in small project teams using scrum or kanban or scrumban depending on what fits the project best. The better is to be a true team player who is able to work independently. Everyone is expected to participate on the daily standup. Other than that, you can schedule the day as you wish. Sometimes we have evening meetings (ie at 6pm) due to the time zone difference (SanFrancisco vs Budapest).

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.

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.
