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
In addition to working on a product team, engineers are encouraged to participate in our practices:
This project is the work of engineers at Artsy, the world's leading and largest online art marketplace and platform for discovering art. One of our core Engineering Principles is being Open Source by Default which means we strive to share as many details of our work as possible.
