I have been working at SmartThings full-time for more than a year

SmartThings has a huge platform with high volumes of traffic, a plethora of technologies used, and brilliant engineers.

Cons

It can be demanding, the world of IOT is moving extremely fast.

Advice to Management

Reliability engineering should be a first class concern. New features are great, but reliability engineering should be a first class product concern that requires continuous investment as it has the... most direct impact on our customers.
