Google Trophy: Distinguished Refactoring Engineer Awarding Clean Code

Jordanna Chord from Google posted a picture of a trophy for the Distinguished Refactoring Engineer award at Google. She said she helped pick the winner. It is for Googlers who don't do new features but rather clean the code, keep it running fast, safe and efficiently. The award was given to engineers who work on the hangouts team.

It says, "Distinguished Refactoring Engineer. Clean code makes everyone happier. From your Hangouts family."

Jordanna explained why it is important:

Amidst the flurry of feature development it takes great engineers to take the time to pause and clean up code. This work is challenging because our users never see it directly which makes it hard to prioritize. But it alone is what makes it possible to move fast and iterate on the things users care about.

Hangouts recognizes those stellar engineers with this cute little green trophy. Want one too? We are hiring! ;0)

She posted this on Google+.
