Engineering at VitalConnect:
We work in an environment where it matters to make the right design decisions the first time, and as a result, take on less technical debt than other companies.
Product is a highly collaborative initiative across multiple teams. Engineers are expected to understand and have product input, designing systems towards our long-term product vision.
We'd rather have one strong engineer, instead of having 5 average engineers. Our customers are fine with fewer features, but are not ok with broken features.
We believe in small, accountable and autonomous teams of amazing people, eager to learn, teach and constantly improve our way of working.
People have a strong sense of ownership and accountability for what they’re building. What we build today will be the foundation for dozens of other systems in the future.
We are very frank on discussing technical matters. If one disagrees with how things are being done, we encourage them to speak up and help us get to the truth faster.
