Work environment

We deliver our user experience using modern HTML and CSS tools (Sass, Bootstrap) and MVC JavaScript frameworks (Backbone, Marionette). We use Jasmine for unit testing.

On the backend, we run a service-based architecture implemented with Java/Spring stack. We persist our data in both relational (MySQL) and NoSQL datastores (Redis, MongoDB, ElasticSearch).

Our high-traffic production environment comprises of more than 700+ virtualized Linux servers sustaining tens of millions of daily searches.

We organize bootcamps for newcomers so that you can familiarise yourself with our philosophy of development in a safe learning environment.

We have dedicated tech coaches that will offer you a helping hand in case you get stuck with a technical problem.
