## Groups
Our engineering organization is directly aligned with our [product categories](/handbook/product/categories/) structures of Stages, Groups and Categories. Some groups are aligned to Stages, others to Groups or collections of categories. Our groups operate on the principle of [stable counterparts](/2018/10/16/an-ode-to-stable-counterparts/) from multiple functions. For example we have a Product Manager, an Engineering Manager, Backend Developers, Frontend Developers, and UX Designers who are dedicated to the [stage](/handbook/product/categories/#hierarchy) named "Monitor". Collectively, these individuals form the "Monitor group". The word "Monitor" appears in their titles as a specialty, and in some cases, their team name. A group has no reporting lines because we [don't want a matrix organization](/handbook/leadership/#no-matrix-organization). Instead, we rely on stable counterparts to make a group function well.
