About Product Engineering at JetFuel 
Engineering at JetFuel is different, by design. We are product engineers, first and foremost. We value shipping a product to our customers that creates an immediate and meaningful impact in their interactions with our platform. We place far less of an emphasis on using the most trendy engineering frameworks, technologies or topics - we prioritize user experience and the inherent value of iterating over purity of product. The product engineering team works in a highly collaborative environment with the business stakeholders, directly negotiating requirements without the added layer of a formalized product or program management department. Engineers join JetFuel for the focus on product, the ability to ship lots of products, fast, and the no-ego, level-disregarding collaboration that is fostered across the entire company. Our founders still actively push code and launch new features, we aim to embody the “no job is too small for me” mindset.
