Our stack includes -- but is certainly not limited to the following technologies:

  • Python
  • Django
  • AngularJS
  • nodeJS
  • PostgreSQL
  • Docker
  • Kubernetes
  • CentOS

Our infrastructure is ran entirely out of AWS, and we currently utilize services such as EC2, EKS, Lambda, CloudWatch, CloudFormation, CloudTrail, RDS, S3, CloudFront, ElastiCache, Elastic Search, Redshift, and more. We use Bitbucket Server (git) and GitLab as our SCM's, Bamboo and GitLab for builds and CI, and Jira for project management. We currently have over 100 EC2, and 50 RDS instances running in AWS.

The technology department you’d be joining consists of 20 people, and we have around 50 total employees, making our in-house technology team account for almost half of the company’s total size. Our software engineering team would report into you, consisting of 11 awesome team members. You would also manage any software related external relationships. For example, we currently have 3 outsourced software engineers that work from Fresno California, and you would own that relationship.

Our culture and environment is very much team-driven. We decide everything from the frameworks we use to project management methodologies as a team. Nothing is set in stone, and we’re always open to testing and especially giving new ideas a chance. If you see areas for improvement both in code or in our culture, you’ll have the opportunity to help shape us for the better.
