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, backed by Serverless technology running on AWS, 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 Embracing Ambiguity, so we are not afraid to experiment nor incorporate new ideas.
