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.
