Week 2 - VP Engineering at Payment Rails CircleCI and API layer testing Understanding the DB schema External developers JIRA Process This is the second in a series of blog posts / journal entries on my experiences as the new VPE at Payment Rails. What happened this week My original goal for this week as people and process, since last week was focused on getting a handle on code and release.
I’ve started a new gig as the VP Engineering at PaymentRails and a new city (Montreal). I’m going to try my best to give you a flavor of my time and the challenges faced in the real world. Background Payment Rails is working on backend payment processing, it’s a early stage startup which already has some traction and a great team of engineers who have made some great progress on the product.
