About our product team
We use an agile process with two-week coding sprints, story point estimation, monthly retrospectives, and a commitment to experimentation and continuous process improvement. We develop our web applications using React, ES6, Java, Dropwizard, Redis, Postgres, Docker, AWS cloud hosting, and other contemporary technologies.

Our QA team is in-house too; they use a combination of technical chops and subject-matter expertise to do manual and automated testing on new features, regressions, bug fixes, and more.
We value independent thinking, creative problem-solving, family and work-life balance, and a rewarding company culture. Living and working in Eugene supports the best of all worlds—interesting and challenging work in a growing tech scene delivering world-class technology from right here in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Eugene’s commute times were rated best in the nation and homes are more affordable than you’d find in Seattle or the Bay Area.
