Talk Tech to me

You’ll work on a cutting-edge tech stack built on Google Cloud (GCP). Some of the cool things we work on include the latest versions of .NET, C#, React Native, Appium, React, Typescript, JavaScript, Node, Google Cloud (GCP), Salesforce, NoSQL, Test automation, Shift-Left methodology, Docker, TDD, BDD, Full CI/CD, event driven architecture, serverless technologies and much more!

Our tech stack provides a solid foundation for our growth. To make the wheels turn faster, we are also integrating AI Technology and removing remaining legacy technology.

As a team, we run sprints, hackathons, and stand-ups but we don’t run away from a challenge. We thrive under pressure, fail fast, own it, get excited about it, learn from it, and deliver on it.

We break boundaries, challenge the norm, and try different things. But whatever we do, and however we do it, we always do it right.

Own it
Whether it’s an idea, initiative, campaign, or conversation, we have the integrity to make it our own.

Think big
Starting small is good but thinking big is better. We see the bigger picture and we know that our thinking is limitless.
