Mixpanel is the most advanced analytics platform ever for mobile and web. We help companies build better products.
Our team of 20 engineers builds and maintains infrastructure responsible for hundreds of thousands of requests per second, distributed across hundreds of servers, and adding tens of billions of data points each month.
The Product Engineering team is composed of full-stack engineers who are responsible for all user-facing parts of Mixpanel: APIs, reporting interfaces, data visualization, and client libraries.
We do very thorough, line-by-line code reviews using GitHub pull requests. This keeps our code quality high and helps us learn.
We try to have two people work together on every project (collaborating, not pairing). It's more fun and it results in better code.
We practice rapid iteration. If it's better than live, we ship. We also build things so they can go live (whitelisted) long before launch day.
We write tests for things that are mission-critical, prone to failure, or cause paranoia. Think billing and datastore code, not Django views.
We care about learning. Right now we're reading through Advanced Programming in the Unix Environment.
We are 80% vim, 10% emacs, and 10% IntelliJ.
