How we work
The Engineering team lives by a set of principles. They're not just nice words—they guide us through day-to-day technical decision-making, give us insight into how past decisions have been made, and remind us what excelling as an engineer looks like.
  • Shape the solution

    We know the value of our work and we design solutions that deliver it efficiently.

  • Keep it simple

    The more complex, the longer it takes to move. Simple solutions are simply better.

  • Be technically conservative

    We don’t need to reinvent the wheel. We just need the right wheel at the right time.

  • Work with positivity, pride, and love

    Engineering is a collaborative process. Great things are only built together.

  • Build in small steps

    Large changes are difficult—we deliver complex changes in small steps instead.

“I’m on a personal mission to curate a team and an environment I’d be excited to join—in any role, at any stage of my career. Shipping is our heartbeat, and engineers are the heart. We move fast, and engineers learn and grow at an accelerated pace.”

Darragh Curran, SVP, Engineering
