Development at Redgate

Every software engineer gets a desktop PC with multiple monitors, an SSD, plenty of RAM and an MSDN subscription.

The majority of our code is written in C# using Visual Studio and ReSharper We use GitHub to version our code and have a strong culture of peer code review. Many teams use NCrunch for automatically running unit tests as you type. We use TeamCity for continuous integration and have an automated LED dashboard to provide visual feedback on any failures. We’re relentlessly trying to get faster feedback loops and invest heavily in faster automated tests.

We use open-source heavily and encourage contribution back to the community. We believe in transparency and display product information publically including build status, test status, performance, sales and customer usage information.
