Our Product Development Department is organized as cross-functional product teams with a high degree of autonomy, and a few platform teams which ties it all together.
We are proud of our engineering culture and community spirit. We host weekly internal tech talks, public meetups for various user groups and have recently started our own YouTube tech talk channel where we will be curating talks by both internal and external speakers.
