We run our services inside Docker containers in a Kubernetes cluster, all running in GCP GKE. 

We use gRPC and messaging queue(s) in addition to HTTP for communication. 

Our Frontend stack is built on React/TypeScript. We love Git and we deploy our software with confidence using cypress, and Git Ops.
