I have some jobs open right now and I am also busily documenting our Software Development process for the auditors, so I thought this might make a good blog post.
The magic starts in our Product Management department. We treat all our software as program products with roadmaps, features, and release plans. This includes our internal operational systems as well as omnichannel retail. I have long been a proponent of this approach, even for APIs.
Our vision is to have an integrated pipeline from the survey portal all the way to deployment.
Artifacts like requirements, concurrence, priorities, and customer feedback are maintained in Aha! Roadmaps. Product Management is also design driven, but I digress. This post is supposed to be about Software Development.
Software Development includes four agile teams. Most of the staff are here in Dallas, with some work offshore in India and Eastern Europe. See my post on sprint planning with time separation. The teams manage their work with Jira.
Jira synchs in both directions with Aha! Roadmaps, and will soon synch with Circle CI for deployment. Our vision is to have a seamless pipeline from Aha’s survey portal, through feature planning, all the way to deployment. For omnichannel retail, we add feature flagging. We are not quite to the point of doing statistical testing and audience segmentation, but we’ll get there.
Agile teams manage their own deployments and feature branches, but releases are coordinated with Product Management and moves to production are regulated by the Architecture team. This is designed to be a choke point for secure change management. The Architecture team also maintains a reference library of artifacts for standardization, like federated identity.
If you’re interested in managing one of our agile teams, here is the link. Work is onsite in our Dallas location, corner of MacArthur and 114, convenient to fine dining and Sunstone Yoga. The facility is urban industrial, with terrazzo floors and exposed béton brut. No remote work, sorry. That’s so 2020. As a manager, we’ll need you onsite.
We are looking for local talent, preferably Texans of the DFW variety. This is to avoid relocation challenges. There is also a certain corporate culture that comes from selling 80,000 street bikes, dirt bikes, and ATVs each year.
