MayStreet, which provides market data to Wall Street players, ensures all teams are trained in DevOps and fully own their roles. This alignment shows up in the platform’s speed and accuracy, Paulsen said.
How did you go about implementing a DevOps methodology within your organization?
MayStreet was founded by two technologists — CEO Patrick Flannery and CTO Michael Lehr — so we very much have an engineering-led culture rooted in ownership and shared responsibility. From the start, they’ve ensured our developers, system admins and QA engineers are in alignment. Planning meetings and sprints are organized across disciplines, since having everyone pull in the same direction is key. Once we laid that foundation, we focused on the release lifecycle, pipelines and technology necessary to automate much of what we thought was important.
