  • Our key technologies are C# (.NET Core) and a Postgres persistence layer, all hosted using Kubernetes on AWS. 
  • We also make use of other technologies where appropriate including Kafka, Elasticsearch, RabbitMQ and Redis. 
  • As we work in an informal, agile environment we are also looking for candidates who are motivated and genuinely excited about what we do.
