Engineering Department Overview

Our Engineering department consist of the following teams:

  • Product Management
  • UX/UI
  • Engineering pods
  • QA
  • Customer Experience

These teams work together to deliver features to production on a daily basis.

A general overview of how our teams function is as follows:

The engineers are broken down into pods managed by a Product Manager and a technical lead. Each pod has a variety of developers with different skill sets depending on the vertical of the product. The Product Manager plans out features and works with UX to conceptualize new and existing features. When the feature is planned out and the mocks are finalized, the developers work on building the feature. Once they have completed their work, everything goes through QA to ensure nothing is broken or missing when the feature is released to production. Customer experience works to support tickets that come in for bugs and or feature requests and conveys this to the Product Management team. We hold a variety of meetings during this process to ensure stakeholders are being heard and we are delivering the best possible products possible.

As a member of the design team, you will be involved in this process from start to finish. Our work environment is extremely collaborative so it is important that you are able to communicate efficiently to a variety of different team members all with different knowledge levels of the products we produce.

Role Background:

You will openly collaborate with IZEA team members from the management, product, and engineering teams to continually innovate and improve the Exchange. You’ll be creating various deliverables such as requirements, personas, site maps, user flows, wireframes, and competitive analysis documents.
