  • How to Structure Your Engineering Team for Success

    The team structure of a startup or tech organization greatly influences its success. Hiring the right people and balancing individual member capabilities is crucial for growth. The structure of an engineering team determines 60% of its success, according to research. Tech companies typically adopt one of three team architectures: technology teams (organized around specific technologies), product teams (aligned with business areas), and matrix teams (cross-functional collaboration). Each structure has its strengths, such as technical proficiency in technology teams and strategic planning in product teams. Understanding team structures is important for effective operation and finding engineers who fit your preferred structure.
