We don’t view engineers at Flatfile as resources or cogs, but as creative problem-solvers. We involve engineering in the process early -- hearing about the customer pain points, ideating on potential approaches we can take, prototyping ideas that seem promising, and doing the solid engineering work to make customers’ lives easier (and our future selves happier).
We partner with product and design, to smooth out the experiences and automate the approach our customers take to share data. We believe that giving engineers the right context and the best tools (including fully decked-out laptops and equipment) results in each person being able to contribute to the company’s success.
Our engineering team is collaborative, help each other out, and pair frequently to share knowledge and accelerate our learning.
I view teams as immutable data structures: you add a person and the whole team is different. Every person has their own unique ways of improving a group, and we look for the ways each person is different and can add something to the team. I look forward to meeting you and seeing how you improve us at Flatfile!
