Here is a quick background of our stack.

  • SignEasy’s backend API which powers all of its user-facing products - both mobile and web, is a microservices-based application with Python + Flask being the main stack. We also use Python + Django, Node.js, and Java for some microservices. . We are not biased about our own decisions and are open to considering other framework/technology stack as needed.
  • We use AWS extensively to host our infrastructure including EC2, ELB, Elasticache, S3, and RDS. We use Nginx and Apache as our web servers and MySQL/Redis for our data stores. We use Ubuntu/Linux and Windows servers - we have a legitimate reason to use Windows. ;)
  • We use Docker and Kubernetes for our development environment.
  • Our stack is very stable and has served us well, but there is always room for improvement and refining. 
  • We are efficient at keeping our infrastructure costs at optimal levels.
