The Team's Engineering Environment
Nike Digital Engineering is a big place. Our primary concern is supporting the Nike Run Club and Nike
Training Club apps with a team that has a diverse spectrum of experience levels - from industry veterans
to recent college grads.
Our production code is usually written for the JVM, mostly in Scala / Akka, and deployed on EC2. We tend to prefer strong-typing and functional style over imperative style in our code. The architecture is highly distributed and decoupled, favoring availability over consistency.
We operate the systems we develop and have a rotating on-call schedule for off-hours contact but during
office hours, the team as a whole handles incidents. Getting paged is rare.
We practice continuous delivery - every merged pull request goes directly to production with
appropriate feature flagging. Our automation is typically scripted in python or ruby with AWS
CloudFormation as the backbone of our deployment architecture.
