  • We ship often, deploying many times daily with the help of peer code review, continuous integration, and our global workforce in over 70 countries.

  • We welcome collaboration, and you can be involved in any discussion across our many communication channels.

    3- Track your time by using Toggl which allows the company to collect metrics on your work.
