How many engineers do you have and what's your growth in manpower like?

Our entire product, engineering, data science, design org is around 80-90. Engineering is about 50-65% of that.

But search/merchandising is a small fraction of the team. We have 2 dedicated backend engineers on the search team.

We are growing rapidly. We are aiming to double the size of the eng org in the next 8 months.

Cool, thanks for sharing. So is your micro-service architecture you described in your article for the 2 engineers or the 40? Asking because 40+ doubling to 80+ seems like a great fit for Micro-services, but 2 people, eh, not so much, IMO.
