Artsy Engineering Operations

Product & Engineering Teams

Artsy product engineering is organized in product teams. Each team has a purpose, eg. "Help galleries get the most out of Artsy and run their business better", and Key Performance Indicators, or KPIs, eg. "The number of artworks uploaded by partners." Each team has members with different responsibilities, including a Product Manager, a Designer, a Technical Lead and Engineers, depending on size. Sometimes the same person wears multiple hats.

You can see this organization in the Product section of Notion ๐Ÿ”‘.

In addition to working on a product team, engineers are encouraged to participate in our practices:

Request For Comments

A Request For Comments (or RFC) is how we change things, by opening a discussion that everyone can participate in and deciding if we want to move forward with the suggested change or not.

RFCs should be created by authoring a markdown file in the /RFCs folder and then opening a pull request. Read the full playbook for all the details!

Support

If you are on call or asked to fix an immediate issue reference our support wiki ๐Ÿ”’ for up-to-date playbooks on how to solve issues.
