BHIVE and Exotel present a great opportunity to learn about tech standards today’s engineers are expected to maintain to deliver high quality products
Technology startups entail the coming together of various aspects of engineering, operations and delivery of the end product. However, given that startups have only basic business processes to start with, achieving technical excellence simply boils down to forming the right core engineering team which carries this vision with a passion. This core team sets in motion a culture of excellence and innovation, of learning and growing, which ultimately attracts the right attention from customers and the community as a whole. It sets in motion a self-sustaining attitude of healthy competition and constant growth, the trademark of true technology companies.
The talk will be a case study of engineering profiles at technology startups par excellence.
