We use a modern stack – Docker, Kubernetes, AWS, Kafka, Microservices – and modern tools – CI/CD, TDD, Agile – to get the job done.

  • Owning delivery. We’re obsessed with shipping value; you’ll own work beyond just a pull request. You’ll care about bugs, scalability, uptime and other non-functional requirements.
