Our Principles

What guides us.

Team

Working at a successful tech company is a team sport. Cohesion and hard work are more important than some ninja JavaScript developer.

Lionel Messi is an outstanding footballer, but an even better team player. He will retire, but FC Barcelona will continue to succeed.

Pair Programming

Sure, two heads are better than one; but, pair programming is not only about producing better code. We find pairing to be the most effective way to train new engineers. There's no better way to learn than spending 8 hours a day pairing with a professional.

Pairing is also super useful at prevent information silos. We reduce ourbus factor by ensuring every part of the system has two eyes looking at it.

Peer Feedback

KMK hires great engineers, but we don't stop there. We collect and distill peer feedback into actionable reviews for all of our engineers. Honest & constructive feedback is one of the best ways to level-up, which is why we give it regularly.

Quick Iterations

Designers, product managers, and engineers at KMK actively work on breaking features down into small releases. Why? This let's us get our work in front of real users sooner and that let's us respond to their feedback. That's what being agile is all about.

Test Driven Development

TDD is a rhythm that helps us maintain steady forward progress. Not only does it reduce the amount of time we spend on bugs, but it improves the design of our code! Testable code needs to be simple, modular, and well refactored — clean code.

Automate Everything

Life is too short to spend time working on tedious tasks. That's why we have automated our: test suites, deployments, server scaling, analytic alerts, and much more.

Sustainability

We want people to have multi-year careers at KMK. This requires a work-life balance.

8 hours of productivity is more valuable than 16 hours of some work, facebook, email, etc. Strict work hours ensure strict free time.

Our Style

Just a few candids.

Our Tools

How we build software.
Ansible
Ansible is a radically simple configuration-management, deployment, task-execution, and multi-node orchestration framework.
RabbitMQ
RabbitMQ is an open source message broker software that implements the Advanced Message Queuing Protocol (AMQP).
Kotlin
Kotlin is a statically typed programming language for the JVM, Android, and the browser.
Swift
Swift is a powerful and intuitive programming language for iOS, OS X, and watchOS. Writing Swift code is interactive and fun, the syntax is concise yet expressive, and apps run lightning-fast.
XHP
XHP augments the syntax of Hack such that XML document fragments become valid PHP expressions. This allows you to use Hack as a stricter templating engine and offers much more straightforward implementation of reusable components.
RxJava
RxJava – Reactive Extensions for the JVM – a library for composing asynchronous and event-based programs using observable sequences for the Java VM.
React
ReactJS is a declarative, efficient, and flexible JavaScript library for building user interfaces.
Python
Python is a widely used general-purpose, high-level programming language. Its design philosophy emphasizes code readability.
Laravel
Laravel is a clean and classy framework for PHP web development. Freeing you from spaghetti code, Laravel helps you create wonderful applications using simple, expressive syntax, giving your application a great foundation of well-tested and reliable code.
Ruby-on-Rails
Rails is a web application development framework written in the Ruby language. It allows you to write less code while accomplishing more than many other languages and frameworks that it makes web application development more fun.
PostgreSQL
PostgreSQL handles virtually all the standard SQL constructs. It is easy (relatively speaking) to administer, it is fast, it is efficient, it has a great API, and it supports ODBC, why would you choose something else?
AWS
AWS offers a complete set of infrastructure and application services that enable you to run virtually everything in the cloud computing: from enterprise applications and big data tools to social games and mobile apps.
NewRelic
A software analytics tool suite used by developers, ops, and software companies to understand how your applications are performing in development and production.
Ruby
Ruby is a dynamic, open source programming language with a focus on simplicity and productivity. It has an elegant syntax that is natural to read and easy to write.
Android
Android is the customizable, easy to use operating system that powers more than a billion devices across the globe — from phones and tablets to watches, TV, cars and more to come.
Git
Git allows groups of people to work on the same documents (often code) at the same time, and without stepping on each other's toes. It's a distributed version control system.
