  • DevOps: Consistently improve our development lifecycle by fine tuning the testing and provisioning process with methods such as infrastructure-as-code
  • Code-reviews: We invest in spreading knowledge around the team, and keeping our code easy to read, test, and maintain.
  • Continuous Delivery:  All logic is tested automatically. We deploy multiple times per day. We often use TDD.
