How we work

What's Castor's working culture like?

Supportive is the first word that comes to mind. Everyone is always willing to help you out whenever needed. Be it pairing up to do some code ‘spelunking’, or giving background info on decisions that were made in the past.

What does Castor’s product release process look like? 

We have around 4 big releases per year and a smaller release every 2-3 weeks. A cycle is kicked off by determining what should be in it. After that a development cycle of about 2 months. Following that we do a feature freeze in which we only do fixes
