What does your engineering process look like?

We do believe that most people have a planning bias so most would think that we spend quite a bit of time in trying to clear and organize our minds before starting any task. We call it “X Workflow”. You can read about X Workflow here.

What does the flow look from the beginning to deploy for a particular feature?

  • You get a feature request from product manager
  • You make sure you understand the goals clearly and collect basic information
  • Assuming it’s time to work on it, you’d start with the specifications (detailed in X Workflow document).
  • The document generally starts with describing the problem, a bit of background and your hypothesis for the approach you’re going to take.
  • Then you would work on the high-level solution proposal
  • And lastly would be your Blackbox (if needed), Theory of operations and functional specs.
  • Once those are approved, you can start coding!
  • Once your code is ready, you would deploy to staging to test your work.
  • If ready, you would then send your code for the final review.
  • Once ready, then it would be deployed to production after OK from CTO.
  • Lastly, you would go back to update your specification with any future work that you believe this feature needs.
  • The specification document and our general process for approaching new feature development is documented here called X Workflow.

Personal competencies required.

You need to know how to:

  • Be organized and smart.
  • Be technically curious (learning on your own).
  • Have a serious interest in understanding the goal behind your work.
