No matter the platform, the Web Team guarantees the best possible user journey. Collectively they work on a single page application using a tech stack that includes React.js, PHP, MySQL,  PostgreSQL, RabbitMQ, Docker and Microservices.

The team today consists of 4 people who work according to Scrum in two-week sprints with releases at least once a week.
