A Day in the Life

Generally you’ll be working in “sprints”: Everyone on the dev team delivers features to our client in a 1~2 weeks sprint. We encourage developers to deliver features to our clients independently by implementing a well designed full stack solution reviewed by the team.

So your day might break down like this:

Morning: Come in around 9am, check messages, emails, arrange short, medium and long-term to-do lists. Note that under the current covid situation, we only come to the office once or twice a week. Carry out coding, problem-solving and development. At various points you will ask for advice (or give advice). After you find a solution, you’d usually create a “change request” or “pull request” summarizing changes proposed. This would probably bring you to lunch.

Afternoon: The afternoon is often when meetings are held and longer-term projects are discussed. After design discussions, you’re given a list of requirements, and then you would have to document the system design and get it reviewed.

End of Day: Wrap up work and get critical questions clarified before the end of day. Most people will leave around 5:30pm, and sometimes we have a bit after work drinks toward the weekend. We are flexible with working hours, but rather emphasizing on efficiency and quality.


Remote Work

While we allow remote work, you’ll be expected to come into the office a few days a week.
