Tech Stack Highlights

Python – We’re using python for our core app, with Django/DRF powering our REST API, NLTK for NLP, and pandas running high-performance real time data analysis to calculate things like RateRank and savings estimates. We use Vagrant and Ansible for IT automation, and Jenkins and Selenium for QA automation and deployment to our AWS environment.

MariaDB – Our database runs Maria on RDS, for optimal MySQL-syntax performance. We crunch a lot of data in each query, so performance is key. Some of our queries approach 100 lines long, with multiple nested queries, dozens of joins, and layered aggregation, and we run some queries thousands of times per day.

Backbone – Backbone provided us “just enough” structure for our highly custom front-end MVC, while allowing us to build our own proprietary routing & workflow engine around it. We’re using epoxy for 2-way data-binding, and jQuery + Bootstrap plugins, in addition to dozens of proprietary UI components.

Bootstrap – Our mobile-first-responsive CSS uses Bootstrap as a baseline, but builds upon it to form a highly-customized, well-organized extensible style-guide with our own unique components and layouts. We’re using SASS class-extension, selector-nesting, and custom mixins under the hood to generate our CSS.
