Implementing Scrum – A case study

During our third quarter in 2018, I embarked on my journey of building a new cross-functional team for a greenfield project. Initially, when we first started, the team only consisted of a product manager and me, as the lead engineer. Fast forward a few months down the road and we had gained the support from two additional developers. The first engineer was working with us in our HQ in Berlin, while the second engineer was working remotely from South America, while his visa was being processed. At first, we didn’t really feel the need for having a specific process – we were using a Kanban board to prioritize and track progress on development. As the team continued to grow and our remote engineer relocated to our HQ in Berlin, we started having the feeling that we could be more productive. This is why we started testing scrum for our team.

Building our own Automation and Support Solutions

There are many ways that we impact customer experience. While traditional product and tech teams focus their work on creating a seamless ordering experience, working on our Automation and Support team means contributing to a positive customer experience after placing an order, especially when something goes wrong at some point in the ordering or delivery process.

Inviting Security to the Party – Part I

In the last year, our Restaurant Partner Solutions (RPS) vertical faced a massive cultural change when our containers orchestration migrated from ECS to EKS. Currently, YAML+terraform is the language spoken in our tribe. Before that, we used to speak JSON+cloudformation and it would take roughly one week to create a new service. Since our migration to EKS, we are able to create the service in a matter of hours and our developers are more empowered as we promote the “you build it, you run it” ethos.
