Hello Alfred: Senior Software Engineer

Our Stack

We have a modern javascript-heavy stack; Node.js, React.js and React Native. We love javascript for its flexibility, simplicity and ubiquity. We temper its quirks with TypeScript, linting, automated testing and dedicated QA engineers. We use: node/express API, Mongo + PostgreSQL databases, React web for admin and internal dashboards, React Native for consumer-facing apps.
