Does anyone know about the Alexa team in Boston/Kendall SQ? How big is the team working on Alexa and why are they there? Thinking of moving for the job.

      It depends a lot on you management chain. 50 50 chance that you get a shit manager and skip level who doesn't understand tech, poor communicator and low eq. This set don't have the capacity to think more deeply about engineering and organization problem. You'll hear them say stupid shit in meetings like "just get it done" or "own it". It's amazing to me these people are L7+.

      The other half are actually trying to pay down the godly amount of tech debt and build sustainable systems and processes without burning out their people.

      Figure out what kind of manger is hiring you and make your decision. Gkad I have new management now that get it.
