Each member of our team has responsibility for every aspect of our systems, from design to coding, testing, code reviews and deploying to production. We build mission critical data pipelines, microservices, APIs and single web page applications. We are lean and agile. We use CI/CD to deliver high quality software. We are the owners of a production environment that runs on Kubernetes and uses cloud services.
