Our stack

We have a modern stack with no legacy code (for now!).

We use these frameworks because we think they are the most appropriate to solve our client’s challenges in their sustainability journey. Having said that, our stack is a team decision and we are always open to different approaches.

Frontends / PWAs

  • React

  • React Hooks

  • Redux

  • Redux-loop

  • Ant-design

  • Ant-design mobile

Backend & Infrastructure

  • NodeJS

  • Express

  • Knex

  • PostgreSQL

  • NixOS

  • GitLab

  • Digital Ocean / Amazon EC2

 

How we work

  • Lean methodology: we use iterative strategies. Our team builds to add value, whether to solve problems for our clients or internal ones. 
  • Design thinking: we create simple prototypes and user tests because we need to understand needs before we commit to building something.
  • Flexible processes: forget about strict processes and structures. Our team is constantly in contact with stakeholders and we decide for ourselves how we are organized.
  • Quality: all the code we provide must be well-structured, efficient and easy to maintain, however, we’re not obsessed with metrics. The best quality standard is for your coworkers to be able to understand your code and work with it. 
  • Open Source Philosophy: we use OSS when possible, and contribute our improvements back upstream. Once our codebase is mature enough, we plan to release the pieces that could be useful for the community.
