Tech Stack Highlights
Ruby / Rails – We use Ruby and Rails for our web facing applications, as well as the API underlying the platform. The entire platform is deployed to Amazon AWS. We haven’t made the jump to Rails 5 yet for existing applications, but it’s on the radar.
AWS – The entire drizly platform is built on AWS. We use a variety of different services, including SNS, Redshift and Lambda, which are used heavily in our data pipeline.
React – Where possible new frontend development is done in React. We have some SPA style projects built in React, as well as a significant number of components on our e-commerce site utilizing react.
Mysql/Postgres/Redshift – Depending on the application we use a slightly different data-store. We like to be flexible, and find the right solution for the problem at hand.
SQS – We utilize SQS heavily as a background job processing system. We’ve found it to be stable, and durable, and performant enough for our use cases.

Tech Stack Highlights
Postgres & Redis – All this is backed up by RDS instances in AWS running PostgresDB. We heavily use Redis and SOLR for data caching and queue management.
Flask/Python – The rest of our apps and services – Email systems, data analysis, internal tools – all run in Python based Flask/Flask-Restless environments.
ELK – Our logging system is run as an Elasticsearch-Logstash-Kibana stack utilizing Filebeat and Logspout for streaming the log output. From this stack we’ve also created a comprehensive Technical SEO Dashboard where we can monitor crawlers and their activity and measure the cause & effect on new site features.
DevOps – Our apps are deployed using Docker Swarm orchestration via Ansible scripts for independence from specific cloud providers. We’ve built a structure with Docker in a Blue/Green deployment methodology so there is zero downtime when releasing code updates. The system is front ended with Jenkins-CI for automated execution of Unit/Integration/Acceptance test suites.
