Our team members distribute tasks amongst themselves and new ideas are always welcome. This enables us to constantly refine our existing processes too. We take an agile approach and share our thoughts and ideas in daily stand-up discussions and weekly sprint meetings. Of course, we also communicate via video calls, since working from home is an option we can offer at any time and working hours are flexible too.
We work with open-source software and support the community. Our server runs Debian Linux and is managed using Puppet, with Postgres used as a database. When it comes to development, we believe code quality is key, so unit tests and code reviews form an integral part of our work. We also advocate user-centred design – we develop our product for people rather than for the sake of information technology. We have factored usability principles into our development process and incorporate design reviews in our agile cycles. New functions and positions are created based on interest, dedication or market demand. Support is given to anyone specialising in a particular area, who in turn offer coaching to other team members.
Our office boasts what is arguably the highest barbecue in Winterthur with a stunning view over the city. Snacks are also provided, and coffee is available to order entirely to suit personal tastes. We also have an annual 10-day training budget, which anyone is free to use. There is a choice of working equipment on offer, including operating systems and development environments.
