THE OPPORTUNITY
While a single product was able to help us scale until this point, the company’s growth from here is based on multi-product strategy. The way we’re scaling our product team is in-line with the company’s strategy. After all, we’re big believers in Conway’s law. So each product will have its own team of PMs and engineers. All of these products are powered by some core services out of which some are built internally and some are third party products like getstream.io.

Think of these products as the three sources of revenue to the company. Your customers are the schools and university and you will build your product to solve problems faced by them.

Here are some examples of the projects in the different products.
• Server side rendering.
• Online tickets and guest management workflows.
• Online fundraising workflows.
• Work with ant design systems to build accessible react components.
• Progressive Image Rendering.
• Optimizing file chunk size to speed up the page load.
