About Product Team
The product team at Brella incorporates design, front-end, back-end engineering, quality assurance, and project management. Our team is based in Helsinki HQ and also in Jyväskylä.
In our product team, we work under a squad/tribe model. Similar to a scrum team, Squads are cross-functional, autonomous teams (typically 3-8 individuals) that focus on one or few feature areas. Each Squad has a unique mission that guides the work they do. The squad is led by a Squad Pilot and will consist of Design, BE, FE, QA, and PM.
