Life with Us

Your Project: Your initial project will include working on a large-scale rewrite of an existing legacy architecture. This presently involves various technologies such as Vue.js, Spring Boot, Kubernetes, AWS infrastructure, and more.

What you'll do day-to-day (with your colleagues): With collaboration from your scrum team of 4-6, you will build and maintain software.
