I’m a new Thumbtack engineer, but I’m not new to engineering. I joined Thumbtack 4 months ago from a much larger tech company: one that has well over 20,000 engineers and a very strong engineering culture, one whose services you likely use daily.
Thumbtack’s got a strong engineering base too: in things like peer code, code best practices, design reviews, continuous integration and monitoring. Engineering discussions here are ongoing amongst a highly engaged group of engineers and managers. And while most of the systems here were new to me, the services they’re providing are very familiar. The first months here have been both stimulating and full of change.
