Our development teams architect and design high-availability, scalable, and fault tolerant systems that are decoupled and easy-to-maintain. A core part of our development philosophy revolves around Microservice and the DevOps model. All our new products are developed as microservices, are containerized, and are then deployed on container management systems such as Kubernetes. The developers on our teams subscribe to a DevOps model where time-to-market functions as a vital measure of our performance, productivity, and success. SQA is considered a key part of the development process. As such, automated unit testing, regression, and integration tests are central to reaching our TTM goals. We are committed to stay ahead of the curve and we are always looking at new technologies that can enhance our product or give us an edge over the competition.
