How we work

Our teams are mostly shaped by the following ideas:

  • We’re empowered and accountable to iteratively solve meaningful problems – Marty Cagan
  • Our people have ever-growing feeling of mastery, autonomy and purpose – Daniel Pink
  • Our team is antifragile and can become better in times of hardship – N. N. Taleb

Living the philosophy outlined above, we put emphasis on:

  • Vision: Product-driven vision (enough guidelines, without constraining details), where each team member has the context to contribute to or understand the reasoning behind our decisions
  • Process: Developing MVP-first, always proving hypotheses and maintaining a low cost to pivot
  • Tech: Industry standard tech, knowing how to push the boundaries of Wayfair Engineering 
  • Quality & velocity: Strong testing and automation culture, focusing on efficient experience (e.g. frequent unblocked deployments) rather than static KPIs (e.g. fixed unit test coverage)
  • Teamwork: Pair programming, frequent ad-hoc team sessions, light calendar load, flexible schedules
  • Fun: Culture with a lot of mutual respect, yet lighthearted enough not to take ourselves too seriously and have plenty of care, fun and laugh
  • Influence: push the bar higher and bring along other teams on the journey of building great tech
