What your typical day may look like?
Come in around 9:30 for the daily standup. Find out that one of the other devs has a code review ready and needs someone to take a look. You volunteer to help them.
By 10:30, you?re done with the code review ? you sent them the feedback through Github.
At 10:35, you look through your work items for the sprint and begin working on the next one ? an A/B test for a widget that will help publishers convert visitors to their site into fans. You whip up a quick prototype, and around 11:30, you have something to show your designer.
You call over the designer and improve the look and feel of the widget together.
At 12:30, a few of your colleagues are heading out to grab a sandwich nearby and you join them.
You?re back from lunch and continuing to plug away at the widget; a good chunk of work is done at 4, so you send it out for code review and push it to the staging environment.
Around 4, you look at Google Analytics and Facebook Insights stats for the component you released a few days ago; you see an unexpected trend ? the conversion rate is far higher than you anticipated. You grab a couple screenshots and send a note to the team, encouraging everyone to consider investing into this feature area heavily for the sprint that starts next week.
Around 6, the crew is wrapping up; several folks are beginning a Starcraft match. You use your nerf gun to communicate that their loud screams aren?t helping you write JS tests. A few minutes later, you give in to the temptation and join them.

Work with nice, smart people on a young and evolving system
Solve hard problems
