Our platform is powered by AWS, Kubernetes, Istio, Terraform and Docker. These tools form the foundation that allow us to deploy and scale fast and easily. Everything is monitored and logged by Prometheus and Grafana, including request tracing for better observability.

We test our software by using Playwright, JUnit, Spock and React Testing Library.
