Adjusting to Working in a Cross-Functional Team Part II

Adjusting to working in my second team at Vend


Since my last blog post I've started working on another project as well. I currently work part-time on two projects at Vend. I've had to adjust to working in another team. The setup is a bit different here as there are now two testers and four developers (slightly better dev:tester ratio than previously).

At Vend, we're given a fair bit of power on how we operate as a team - which means that each team is different. The product teams all tend to be of (somewhat) similar size, they all have a Product Analyst, Designer, Product Manager, Developer and QA involved in the project and they are all working towards a product.

But that's where the similarities stop.
