Secret Sales: When you finish a feature, can you release it with confidence right away, or do you have to wait days or weeks to find out what users think? Secretsales uses continuous delivery to get super-rapid feedback on all the features we build for our busy, successful online shopping site. In addition, we are a team of generalising specialists, ready at the drop of a hat to refine an algorithm, write a tricky integration test, tune a SQL query, or discuss feature nuances with a product manager. We hold regular retrospectives to improve our working environment and lightning talks to share cool ideas whether work-related or not. Write to our CTO Squirrel at [masked] to find out more about jobs at Secretsales.

    Hi, I wanted to RSVP but the registration closed already. Is there still a possibility to buy a ticket at the door? Thanks

    January 29, 2014

    • Andy

      Yes please. Send me your paypal address and I'll pay you back. Or I'll buy you a beer next time, whatever works.

    • Leslie O.

      I turned up at the door and paid; they were really cool about it; but I'm sure they'd prefer payment online first.

    Salut! See you there!

    @Lisa - This webpage states "RSVPs close: Jan 29, 4:00 PM" so it looks like tickets need to be purchased in advance.

    January 27, 2014

    • Stevie B.

      You purchase the tickets via meetup. There will be a limited number available on the night but it really is limited so your safest bet is to RSVP & pay here.

      January 27, 2014

  • Lisa N.

    Hi there, event looks good! Do we just buy tickets on the night?
