The Codebase You'll Be Working On

Our platform is built on a solid foundation of modern web technologies, and we are in the middle of a significant modernization effort.

Our current tech stack includes:

  • Frontend: We utilize React and TypeScript for building dynamic and responsive user interfaces, complemented by Tailwind CSS for creating modern, visually appealing UI components.
  • Backend: Our backend is primarily built with Node JS and PHP. As we transition to a more distributed architecture, experience with microservices and AWS Lambda is highly valued.
  • Testing: We ensure robustness and reliability with strong unit and end-to-end tests using Jest, Cypress, and PHP Unit.
  • Design Systems: Storybook is used for developing, testing, and documenting UI components in isolation.
  • Databases: MySQL and DynamoDB are our go-to databases, requiring strong knowledge in database optimization and query performance.
  • Caching: Redis is employed for caching to enhance application speed.
  • Messaging Buses: We utilize AWS EventBridge and RabbitMQ for messaging and event-driven architecture.
  • Infrastructure: All our systems run on AWS, leveraging its power and scalability. We use Docker for containerization and AWS ECS for container orchestration and CI/CD pipelines.
  • APIs: We offer robust public APIs, requiring a strong understanding of RESTful API design and GraphQL.

We handle millions of requests across the globe, ensuring our systems are robust, scalable, and always available to meet the demands of our customers.
