But I digress… You are probably wondering how being a lazy engineer makes for a great engineer. Being lazy is actually one ofBogart’s three core engineering principles. Yes, you read that right – we encourage our engineers to be lazy.
At Bogart, being a lazy engineer means capitalizing on methodologies in various customer spaces spaces by finding ways to simplify them and apply them to problems across multiple verticals. It means reusing code and solutions wherever we can. It means automating processes that need to be executed more than once. The “Be lazy”principle is all about finding efficient solutions and reusing them wherever we can.
How exactly does this pay huge dividends? By embracing this principle our engineers are able to be very effective much more quickly than your average engineer. They aren’t reinventing the wheel every time they build an analytic or software solution. They aren’t relearning how to make things scale and what the pain points are every time they start a project. By being lazy, our engineers do more in less time which enables them to do more for our customers.
Lazy engineers are great, but they cannot succeed on their own. They need an environment that enables a lazy culture. One of the things we aim to do at Bogart is provide an environment that fosters the growth and success of lazy engineers through hackathons, engineering forums, and corporate training.
