Long before I ever considered joining the team, I was a fan. And customer. Having used the other domain registrars, there was something special about DNSimple's approach that resonated. Was it DNSound? Nah, just the lack upselling, cross-selling, and the get-in-and-do-my-work-and-get-out experience.
Fast-forwarding a few years, I now lead the Feature team. Seeing new features land in my own personal DNSimple account that I helped forge is an amazing thrill. Lately, we've been refining our workflow; hand-tuning our own version of Shape Up. Our tiny team has consistently released feature-after-feature in a mind-blowing 8-week cadence — including planning, design, implementation, support articles, internal documentation, and marketing work!
