What's in a title?
Here at Two Barrels we don't take titles very seriously. We know for recruiting purposes we need to call our jobs something, so we started with labeling and differentiating them in a fairly traditional way with "junior, mid, senior". However, we've realized that was putting our employees in a box and wasn't allowing us to uniquely identify their individual contributions, strengths and professional goals. Once you join our team the titles kinda get dropped as we expect everyone to work with everyone regardless of title or experience. We have taken the approach of evaluating candidates and employees on a "level" basis. It makes it a little easier internally to talk about growing into the next level without there being this huge chasm between what it means to be a Junior Engineer vs. a Mid Engineer. Our levels have expectations set for each one and it's the responsibility of the manager and employee to make sure there is alignment. We do this through quarterly conversations where we discuss employee progression, if the work is challenging, and to ensure they feel fairly compensated for their work and expertise. Basically, levels gives us more flexibility to help people grow in their careers. But sure, you can post your title on LinkedIn as what makes sense to the rest of the world.

An Insider's view of Two Barrels LLC

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Get your work done and don't worry about the odd hour here or there when something comes up. Life is unpredictable. Life is complicated. My life outside of work is understood to have value to me and there's never been any pushback when life steps in with a To-Do list. There's a great relief in this kind of work-life balance.

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

Our technical challenges are vast, between keeping payment systems running, public API's refreshed, & core applications running whilst fixing bugs/attempting to work on features.

A large component is picking apart the aspects that need to be updated which requires reverse engineering to establish how fundamental these aspects of the system work.
