💻Our Stack

We’re building our Web Frontend with the latest version of EmberJS. The framework’s proven stability and strong conventions help us focus on what matters most: shipping stunning features and value to our customers.

However, not mastering Ember is not an issue at all! A lot of Qontoers have learned since they joined us.
As long as you are willing to learn, it doesn't matter if you've been using React, Angular or Vue, we have everything you will need to get you onboarded very quickly 😉

We’re building our own Design System and UI Kit from scratch. We ❤️ Open Source projects and have released several JavaScript libraries. We use many industry-leading tools such as Prettier, ESlint, Mirage, Percy, Storybook, Lokalize, Sentry... and we maintain a state-of-the-art container-based CI/CD.

Our backend is running on Golang and Ruby, and we use Kotlin and Swift for our Mobile applications. Our platform runs on a Kubernetes cluster hosted on AWS, with PostgreSQL as our database of choice, using Kafka for our event-driven architecture and ELK for logging and auditing, among many other tools, services, and applications.
