How We Work
Our platform is a mixture of C# and Python with a Ruby front-end. We deploy via CI (Jenkins) and a completely automated test suite.

You will have a regular dialogue with developers, product owners, analysts and data scientists within and outside the team, and interact with them on a daily basis. We are big believers in a lean philosophy and flexibility in implementation, while we’re also aiming to achieve stack consistency and alignment across the board.
