Our stack

Golang is our backend language of choice, unless something else is needed. We run Node.js on some of our systems close to the frontend, and our Data Platform team prefers using Python.  We persist data in PostgreSQL, Redis and GCP Storage. 

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.
