About Our Team

Backend Engineering at Airship is focused on distributed system design, development, and support. We provide low latency services that process a stream of events from both apps/web/mobile wallet/email/sms and internal services.

  • Our backend infrastructure is built on the Google Cloud Platform.
  • Our platform uses > 150 microservices that talk to SQL and NoSQL databases and handle an immense load.
  • Engineers are involved in schema design, ownership of data semantics, and a lot of squinting at server metrics trying to puzzle out why database write latency spiked in the 99th percentile and moved the emphasis in “near-real-time” from “real” to “near.”

Technologies we use:

  • Google Cloud Platform: Cloud SQL, BigTable, BigQuery, Pub/Sub, Dataflow, Dataproc, Datastore
  • Most backend services are written in Java
  • Service oriented architecture
  • CI/CD
  • Metrics: Grafana and Prometheus
