About our codebase
Our codebase is spread between 4 different repositories. The main one, the one that you would be working on consists of almost 75000 statements and around 500k lines of code. Currently, it’s operating on Python 3.9 and Django 3.2 (migration to 3.10 and 4.0 in progress). Our codebase is 7 years old and we do have some parts that need more love. That’s why every Friday we have Quality Fridays – a day where you don’t have to do your sprint work, but team up with people from other departments and work on something that brings us closer to a perfectly clean code 😉

Being a board game geek and a dad jokes lover is actually a must but we put it here as our HR team believes it’s not crucial (although we kinda think it is).
