How can Nortal offer you such an opportunity? We combine strategy, change and technology to deliver meaningful impact. Together with close to 600 specialists, we create data-driven and seamless processes for governments, businesses and healthcare institutions in Europe, the Middle East and Africa ,and now also in the USA. We run projects in more than 20 countries across the globe, with the aim to simplify and optimize naturally complex processes in order to create a seamless society. Here is what we have done:
-We’ve propelled Oman 127 places up in World Bank ranking for Ease of Doing Business by changing local legislation and creating an e-Business Registry, to boost local business setup.
-We’ve created meaningful impact for 35 million telecom subscribers across Baltics and Nordics and parts of Asia alongside key telco operators, and tens of millions across United States alongside one of the leading telecom players. 
-We are awarded as most employee and family-friendly company in Estonia in 2008, 2012 & 2014

The project leverages Elastic Path Commerce built with widely used Java open source technologies including Spring, OpenJPA, Solr, Drools and Camel. One of the core components, Elastic Path Cortex is patent-pending hypermedia API, allowing developers to assemble resources from multiple business platforms into one unified API. Cortex conforms rigorously to the HATEOAS constraint and Level 3 of the Richardson Maturity Model, making it one of the most advanced APIs on the planet. These technology platforms helped the world’s biggest brands - Google, Symantec, Time Inc, Virgin Media, to name a few.

"My constant professional and personal quest is for projects with ever bigger impact. Because greater impact means greater technological complexity and challenge. I could not have wished for something more than the opportunity offered by Nortal to be part of a project with a USA-wide impact.”
Priit Liivak, Head of Engineering
“E-commerce has changed significantly in recent years, making it necessary to rethink the architecture of past solutions and approaches. Customers are no longer satisfied with a simple web based e-shop. IoT products, smart watches, Google Home, Amazon Echo have changed the game in e-commerce. To support all these touch points, their interfaces need to be reactive. In US e-commerce projects we use Elastic Path Commerce to build a single coherent API to simplify and improve the customer journey for 100 million end users.
Architecturally, the customer is striving for a goal which makes a lot of sense and I saw many opportunities where I could support our teams to achieve that. The focus on high levels of automation and quality was also very appealing. The customer communication is very open and honest, regardless of multiple stakeholders.”
