What does a normal day look like?
[They are currently all working remotely, though when it's safe to return to the SF office, many of us will be there. In some cases we are able to support full-remote engineers who are not in the Bay Area]. They are a team of 5 developers and they like to work collaboratively. This means that you'll generally be working on a project with another person or two. The projects are part of 6 week cycles that they plan out and tackle together (no sprints). They tick-tock between product/feature arcs and engineering arcs.A standard day might look like:
They put a high priority on timely code review, so maybe warm up by reviewing a branch?
10am: 15 Minute stand-up (except Fridays) talking about any new developments, the plan for the day, and any blockers
Mondays at 10:30 we have a company all hands to review how each department is doing
The rest of the day, check in with your project team and work together, pair, or divvy up work individually
On Fridays they alternate between: Demo Hour and Code Chatter. At Demo Hour everyone gives a 7 minute talk about something work related. Code Chatter is an hour to spend discussing a topic we've learned either at or outside of work. Recent topics: OSS contributing tactics, a coding challenge from 99 Bottles of OOP, and web application security.
Mix in a weekly 1:1 with your manager, a team retro every two weeks, and a skip level 1:1 with one a Co-founder every month
