Our developers are expected to leave the code better than they found it, without compromising integrity. We utilise strong testing and test-driven development practises to both refactor and improve the code base without impacting current production features, this is supported by using code quality tools like Sonar to give metrics coupled with nightly continuous deployment where automated Selenium and Gherkin-based tests are run. We follow an Agile methodology based on SCRUM and have daily stand-ups to allow the team to synchronise tasks for the next 24 hours.
