  • ExpressJS

    #<User:0x00007f9898449638> Backend

    Least opinionated and easiest to hack around with.

  • MongoDB

    #<User:0x00007f9886eb3a18> Backend

    The Geospatial features are the easiest to get up and running and easiest to scale beyond single servers. On top of that NoSQL allows us to iterate features at the speed of light.

  • Bitbucket

    #<User:0x00007f989843b7e0> Backend

    TBH, it's private. It's free. It's beautiful!

  • Python

    #<User:0x00007f98983e81a8> Backend

    Large swaths of resources built for python to achieve natural language processing. (We are in the process of deprecating the services written in python and porting them over to Javascript and node)

  • TypeScript

    #<User:0x00007f9886990b80> Backend

    We, our team can sleep comfortable at night know "x is undefined" will not occur in production. It's also really helpful as IDE help in code completion when they know types.

  • Redis

    #<User:0x00007f98865cc8c8> Backend

    Mostly using it for cache and using it as a distributed queue job broker.


    #<User:0x00007f988656a128> Backend

    Insanely fast and easy to setup with TLS certificates.
