"I want every engineer at Qonto to be legitimately proud of the systems they’re responsible for."

For example, in my first month, I led a kaizen — that is, a hands-on, fast-moving continuous improvement process — to deploy a Qonto instance in staging faster. We went down from 27 minutes to 3 minutes. This benefits every developer, every time they deploy the branch they’re working on.

I have ideas to move this discussion forwards without lowering expectations, mainly by increasing transparency and accountability. I want each and every engineer to be legitimately proud of the systems they’re responsible for.

We find it useful to consider our activity as a collection of value streams, look for waste, and remove it through continuous improvement.
