Technology

We love technology, and love our mission even more. We like to use modern tools that keep us productive, but we're also willing to hold off that tempting migration project to ship a major user feature or launch a key partnership.

We use a handful of different technologies across our stack:

  • Android development happens primarily in Kotlin
  • Backend has historically written most code in a JavaScript monolith backed by PostgreSQL. As described in Moving Calm to Microservices, we're moving towards Golang and problem-appropriate storage technologies
  • Data builds with Python, Golang, Airflow, Redshift, Kinesis, SQS/SNS and Tableau
  • DevOps works primarily in Golang, Kubernetes, Helm, Terraform and AWS
  • Frontend development happens primarily in TypeScript, React and Next.js
  • iOS development happens primarily in Swift
