Shipping code multiple times a day
How long does it take for your code to actually reach end-users? For us it's a matter of seconds - without any downtime. Who better to judge whether your code should be pushed to production than you yourself? We trust you. In fact we want you to push to production from day 1.
Instead of maintaining one big pile of code we've broken it down to many self-contained services that talk to each other through API's. You can get in fast and be productive right away. And it scales...
No army of managers can substitute self-driven, responsible teams who communicate directly with each other. Small teams, big responsibility - that's how we do it. You take ownership of your projects, drive them and make decisions.
No regular meetings
Ever found yourself in a daily standup and saying 'same as yesterday'? Well, we don't do that. We take meetings only when we need to and you're free to leave them the moment you decide there's no need for that - in fact you should.
The technology we use is extremely hot!
We use Ruby 1.9.3, Rails 3, Sinatra, CoffeeScript, Backbone.js, Handlebars.js, HAML, SASS, EC2, Github
