The team

We structure our work around projects — sometimes small, sometimes big. We don’t have a set project teams, but rather organize anew around each project we start; letting the people have a say on what they want to work on next.

We keep management at minimum, letting the team set their own goals and choose their own way to solve the problem at hand.
