 About the Tech Department

At THE ICONIC Tech Team, innovation drives us; we believe that innovation should not be sitting in a silo team but rather be part of everything we deliver. Every person in the tech team has a voice and our best outcomes are achieved through collaboration in whiteboard sessions. All our teams are cross-functional, mission-driven and they are able to iterate from inception to production without being blocked or having to ask permission from other teams. We love to move fast and validate learning using data!

Everyone in the tech team is aware of the importance of having a psychologically safe environment where people are allowed and even encouraged to fail often. We have the structure in place to allow everyone in tech to deploy new risky ideas with minimal collateral damage. We believe that our customers benefit more if we move fast, even if that means breaking a couple of things along the way.
