While our stack of choice is Ruby on Rails for API & background processing on the backend + VueJS SPA on the frontend, our software and data engineers come from various backgrounds (Java, Node, Perl, React, Angular…). Some of us are stronger on the backend, other on the frontend, but we all work collaboratively top to bottom and we believe in using the most appropriate tool for the job. Day to day we work on improving the performance and quality of our content collection technology, build new and better ways of alerting and reporting information to our users in our desktop & mobile apps, enhance our infrastructure to be more automated and reliable as we scale. We deploy on GCP cloud and aim for the sweet spot between modular monolith and micro-services. The variety and the amount of content (text, audio, video, images, PDF) we analyse make for many interesting challenges so we promise you will learn new things and won’t get bored.
