Our code runs on hundreds of millions of devices around the world and affects a big share of web traffic and the online population. (…) we do a lot of work to deliver amazing engineering quality, high reliability, enormous scale and speedy performance.
When I’m working on a piece of software, I like to be challenged. Zentrick provides these challenges by the nontrivial domain of video advertising, where performance is key and everything runs at a really large scale.
I genuinely appreciate the awesome team that we have today. Aside from being highly skilled engineers, they’re also just a wonderful bunch of people to be around. That’s also why it’s great that we regularly have team activities such as a sushi workshop, a DJing class, or a board game night.
Here at Zentrick everybody can come up with an idea to enhance our tech stack and there is actually a good chance it gets implemented. (...) Though my single most favorite thing about my job is Friday afternoons. That is our time to learn or work on whatever we want.
We do pair programming where applicable and have our daily stand-up meetings to keep track of each other's work. Next to this, we also need to sync regularly on some pieces of code because we try to let every developer work on all parts of the system.
