We're a rapidly growing team of over 30 engineers, split into squads, some of whom are cross-functional, made up of Fullstack Developers, UX/UI Designers and Product Owners.
We take an agile approach, incorporating best practices into our day-to-day, as well as staying abreast of the latest tools and technologies to ensure the products remain ahead of the curve.
Our teams take an agile, incremental approach to software delivery. We build the products as a collaborative effort and maintain a really close working relationship with both our commercial colleagues and our customers.
We're also really keen to ensure we continually improve - we conduct regular retrospectives and approach any issues or outages from a blameless perspective. We also hold a regular open-invite technical chapter where any ideas for improvements, new tools and technologies can be discussed.
Our Tech Stack
We use PHP & Laravel for both Spectre and Street, and we try to keep up to date with the latest versions of both. At the moment, we're on PHP 8 and Laravel 9 for Spectre and PHP 7.4 (planning the move to 8!) and Laravel 8 for Street. We're also using Vue.js for some of our frontend components, and AWS for our infrastructure.
For our mobile app development, we use React Native, Redux, and Bitrise for our pipeline.
However, we're open-minded when it comes to using whatever tools and technologies are right for the job at hand.
