If you love a friendly & supportive team who is always questioning the limitations, we’re your team.

You can read much more on our perspectives on all this in our Tapas Teamwork blog post. As a team, we expect ourselves to write readable and testable code. We don’t give bonus points for writing code in the fewest number of lines. Stars are earned when another team member can easily hop in and understand code; gold stars for test coverage.
