    An Insider's view of Kazoo

    What makes someone successful on your team?

    Communication is incredibly important in a distributed engineering organization. We rely heavily on collaborative practices like code review and paired-programming to get our work done.

    Fearlessly diving into the arena "unknown unknowns" can be intimidating, but is required for some of the more difficult software problems a team is solving.
