    Engineering Principles:
    - We solve live merchant problems, before working on future features.
    - We design for 20x.
    - Think like the merchant and go meet them.
    - Push early, pull often.
    - We build frameworks when we have at least three use cases.
    - We are all designers, architects, coders, testers, security officers and on-call engineers.
    - We all make mistakes, we seek help and share as soon as we find out.
    - Code and test beyond the happy flow, think about failure scenarios and security.
    - A product is only finished when it has a face and is validated with a live customer.
    - You own when, where, and how your code goes live.
    - Your code should be understandable at 4am under stress.
    - We embrace new technology when it has clear benefits.
