Why

Why do we need a team focused on building websites?

  • Ensure consistency, standardization, and quality of our websites.
  • Manage scope and timeline to keep projects on track and lean.
  • Improve efficiency in all aspects of the project life cycle.
  • Prioritizing tasks and projects based on goals that help "move the needle".
  • Making "pretty" designs a web reality.
  • Baking continuous improvement into everything we do.

Who

Our technical project managers (TPM) are official called Web Product Engineers (WPE) and instead of engineering code, they engineer and manage the entire life cycle of a technical web project. They are project managers that have experience in web development, project management, people management, and helping keep project teams happy and productive.

We have both front-end and back-end engineers that develop and implement the code that runs the web properties that we manage. We also now have a full-time Information Architecture and UX designer on the team that will help ensure that what we do on the web is focused on the user and always improving.

A few people in our team are identified as having special expertise about a topic that we deal with, such as testing or localization. We call these people Champions, and you can read more information and see a list of the current champions on the Champions page.
