We are a polyglot company and try to use the right tool for the job. We find team diversity helps bring alternate ideas and approaches to light.

Our current stack is a blend of PHP, NodeJS, AngularJS, Docker and various supplementary languages. We know that parts of our system are legacy, but we have open conversations about how we plan to replace them and move forward. For example: The team has been discussing the benefits of rewriting parts of our stack in Golang or a similar language.

Over the last year we have been making a transition to a “Service Oriented Architecture” which has allowed us to consider solutions we previously had not considered. A wide new range of ideas our platform can support are opening up to us, it is truly an exciting time at Picatic.
