Litera, the world’s leading provider of legal workflow and workspace technology, has been using Hakkiri since September of 2019 and is a valued voice of feedback and insights. We sat down with Eric Brown (virtually, of course), Sr. Manager Product Operations, to discuss how Litera uses Hakkiri to bridge the gap between their product strategy and engineering teams which enhances their ability to deliver with predictability.

One of the key values of our company is to Dominate. Dominate everything you do, take extreme ownership, and continuously push your knowledge and abilities to new levels. A Full Stack mentality enables Domination. Rather than limiting yourself to exclusively Backend Engineer or Frontend Engineer, you are a Full Stack Engineer, capable of learning what is needed in any part of the Stack and implementing it yourself. Commit, and don’t sell yourself short. Cloud technologies, like these 5, have been providing fantastic building blocks that enable engineers to build across the Stack more easily than ever. We previously discussed the benefits of Full Stack Engineering that your company will get. Now let’s talk about how it’s valuable to you and your career growth. It's a great time to be an engineer, so unshackle yourself, and be a Full Stack Engineer.

As a business that needs to deliver quickly, we like to keep as much of our focus as possible on our products and services. We believe in Full Stack Engineering and prefer SaaS technologies that enable our team to own delivering end-to-end. Every book or blog post on startups you read will, rightly, tell you to build what's special about you, and to use vendors for undifferentiated heavy lifting. At Hakkiri, we’ve benefited a lot from this mindset and wanted to share the technologies that most accelerated our MVP to market.
