Blue Apron provides subscribers with fresh, locally sourced ingredients in pre-measured quantities and step-by-step recipes to help chefs of all levels cook incredible meals at home.
Just like Blue Apron makes it easy for everyone to achieve culinary success at home, through Optimization, Rigor helps engineering teams of all sizes identify defects and then delivers step-by-step directions on how to address any hang ups with speed and ease.
John Cline, Engineering Lead, at Blue Apron gave us insight into how his team leverages Rigor.
We have seen two big benefits from using Rigor Optimization.
The heart of Optimization is the dead-simple suggestions on how to improve our website by telling us what is broken, why it is broken, and what we should do to fix it. These simple, step-by-step instructions on how to improve our site’s performance has helped us respond to defects quickly and accurately.
The second benefit is the knowledge base, which includes how-to guides and best practices. We are starting to elevate performance as a skillset within the team; the knowledge base, in particular, its explanations on best practices, has been incredibly helpful in doing so.
