You Don’t Need 100 Engineers to Build a Product
You don’t need 100 engineers to build a product. You need 5–10 engineers that…
- Work well together
- Understand the problem domain
- Know how to build and deploy a unit of code (no “throwing over the wall” to an Ops team)
It’s a short checklist that’s easier said than done, but it forms the basis of how they staff their engineering teams that ship infrastructure trusted by companies like Uber and ING.
