Currently, the platform is built mainly using Go (Golang) backed by a PostgreSQL database. The server components are hosted on a Google Cloud architecture that allows easy scaling. Other technologies and tools that we use are ReactJS, Redux, GraphQL, SASS, Webpack.

We're growing our Product Development team to 31 people (product Lead, product owners, front-end engineers, back-end engineers, QA engineers and UX/UI designers). To scale up our team, we are looking for talented engineers who have proven work experience in solving complex problems in the related domain. Knowledge of Go is required.
