Jest is our test framework of choice, not only for our frontend but also for most of our APIs.
Our APIs are built using a Microservices Architecture and are deployed on an aws ECS cluster. Many of our APIs have been built using HapiJS and our newest APIs are using golang.
Our infrastructure is hosted on AWS and all resources are managed through CloudFormation.
To achieve the performance needed for the warehouse, our database uses the latest features of postgres 12.
Being DevOps proponents, automation is a key aspect of our work.
Having a developer-friendly environment is our priority.
