How we work
The people behind Sine are smart, creative and motivated to build enduring, robust and scalable products. We invest in quality at every stage of the process and are looking to invest in making the team faster and have a greater impact. We’re starting to hit interesting scale challenges and moving into microservices as we scale. We use the best bits of agile to keep the team highly aligned but loosely coupled and orientate to consistent results.

We operate entirely in the cloud and horizontally scale our services, we don’t run special versions for different customers - everyone runs on the same single codebase and we are going to keep it that way.

If you’re looking for a place that’s got a great working culture, continual investment in product and people and is building a cool product in the cloud - please apply!
