What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

We constantly fight tech debt and have the buy-in from management and business to spend 25% of effort each sprint addressing tech debt. We call it the sustainability budget. This ensures the code is well designed, maintained and fun to work with. You'll do the best work of your career.
