Team - Marketplace Matching

The Matching domain has embraced remote working, with teammates spread across Europe. The domain is split into separate engineering teams, as well as other crafts working independently.

We are a team of passionate people who want to build high-quality systems and adopt the industry's best practices.

Our first goal is to deliver products and features, but we also strive for high-grade engineering in everything we do, constantly balancing delivery with quality.

We are open to suggestions, ideas, and improvements and always take facts and data into consideration when making a technical decision. We do it with kindness, do not blame or judge others and leave our ego behind.

We all have different backgrounds, experiences, and specialisations, and we believe that cooperation and knowledge sharing are key to building a great team. This is why we encourage discussions so that we can all learn from each other. We trust each other, and we are all responsible for the systems we build. We mutually help ourselves if anyone needs support.

We take care in communicating clearly and have tailored our engineering processes to remote work.
