The bleeding edge of the web & mobileHow We Build

We are a polyglot shop building a Governance Platform that is deployed across the web, iOS, Android, and Windows desktop, which means we have lots of opportunities to explore the latest technologies.

New languages, ideas and tools spread through our team not because they are mandated but because they improve our ability to deliver incredible value. We believe innovation breakthroughs come from experimentation and not being afraid to take risks and fail. One of our company values is Disruptive Innovation and we are not afraid to disrupt ourselves.

Some cool tools & technologies that we build with include:

react rails ruby nodejs scala java phoenix aws docker terraform postgresql mongodb angular gopher apple ios android dotnet visualstudio
