Our main tech stack includes Elixir/Node.js for the back-end, Vue/React for the front-end, Kubernetes for CI and Swift/Kotlin/Flutter for mobile apps.

 

We follow modern ways of async way of working: Asana/Slack + Git + CI. We constantly convince our clients (mainly with success) that working with legacy solutions rarely is a good idea. Every week we do a company-wide session on our internal processes. We host weekly Poznan Elixir Group meetups, and have people that have spoken on some of the biggest Elixir and JavaScript conferences in the world. For two years we’ve been running a Workation programme in remote locations like Thailand or Portugal to keep ourselves in high spirit and get that gorgeous tan.
