Tech Stack Highlights

Amazon Web Services – We rely on AWS extensively. We use EC2 for computing, EBS for storage, RDS for relational databases, ElastiCache for caching, and we’ve also experimented with Kinesis, Lambda and ElastiSearch. In the past, we used other hosting providers that were less expensive, but as we’re scaling, AWS has been able to scale extremely effectively.

Codeship.io – We use Codeship to run integration tests at every commit. This lets us push hotfixes quickly, especially for UI changes, and lets us run experiments quickly.

FullStory – We use FullStory extensively to look at customers’ use of MarketMuse. It’s also great for debugging – when a customer reports an issue, we can replicate it in FullStory. Our Customer Success team also uses it, especially with new customers, to see how well they’re using the software and where there may be gaps in their understanding.

Scala with Play Framework – We use python for prototyping and in areas where we need to move flexibly. But for heavy lifting, we use Scala. It runs on the JVM, so it natively supports all Java libraries (of which there are many in Natural Language Processing). We use Akka and its “actors” extensively to take full advantage of CPU and network/IO resources.
