We're a group of highly skilled and supremely enthusiastic professionals who love to spend time together, working hard on projects or just hanging out. We’re smart, eccentric, and fun. Above all, we're a team, and we want to see each other succeed personally and professionally.

Despite the fact that our startup is primarily funded by outsourcing development, we aim to become a full product company. We currently have several internal projects and a host of new ideas.

Our tech stack is mainly: React, React Native, Node.JS and TypeScript. 

We also use Jamstack, based on Gatsby and Contentful. We’re developing our own build system, which is similar to a styled-system.

When it comes to databases, we use Postgres and MySQL. 

We mostly host on AWS.
