When I started BizeeBee, I was determined to put in place engineering principles that I hadn’t been able to at previous companies. I also wanted to avoid a lot of bad practices that I had experienced throughout my career such as splitting the responsibilities of development and testing, and product bloat.

    I know most startups like to take the quick and dirty approach to product development, and then go back and refactor or rebuild their product. That’s great and we’ve certainly refactored a lot of our code base too. But I started charging customers from
