Work @ Joy
Fast paced, Challenging, Fun.
The work environment is very dynamic. We iterate often and fast. We talk to our customers. We dig deeper into what is it that they really need. We encourage wearing as many hats as you want. We value humility and honesty over being right every time. We believe ideas win, not people.

Engineering @ Joy
Joy engineering is responsible for delivering high uptime backends and lightning fast, exquisitely crafted user experiences across mobile and web. We strive to remain at the cutting edge of technology allowing developers to do their best work here. On the backend we are developing a robust REST and GraphQL platform to empower event management all over the world which supports many thousands of requests per minute. The front ends touch more than a tens of thousands of users daily.

Things which we do differently than many other software companies include the following.

- Testing your own feature and sometimes helping with testing other people's features.
