We are using Node.js to develop microservices and back-end application. We leverage technologies such as Docker, Serverless Framework and TypeScript. We serve back-end APIs internally, to our customers (B2C) and to our partners (B2B). We are using tools such as message queues, Kafka for event streaming, Amazon SNS, Postgres and more. Our infrastructure sits in Amazon Web Services. Supported by our wonderful Platform Team, we are able to deliver software on Kubernetes or in a serverless manner using Serverless Framework.
