A bit about the team
You can get to know the team better at one of the interviews, but some brief information about future colleagues will be useful now.
Our team started by taking ownership of the products that were in the frozen phase of development (hence the name Frozen team) and developed mature processes to lighten that phase of the product’s life. However, many of the products have returned to the active phase in their lifecycle, and our team is starting a new metadata store product. Two projects are quite important for the company portfolio, and one is under C-level control for the next year.
