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.
