At Upgrade Pack we are building a next generation technology platform to transform the way upgrades are attained by the most valued customers and employees of the world’s most innovative companies.
Using a single language across the technology stack is important to us; it enables front and back end developers to seamlessly work together and if a developer wants to move full-stack they can with our support and guidance.
The back end will be focused on microservices; we initially develop the API spec using OpenAPI with testing on Postman. Once we're happy with the API; we'll develop the code using Node.js. The framework and database we choose will be the optimal solution for the microservice being developed, right now we are using Express and Loopback deployed to App Engine, with Cloud SQL and Cloud Datastore. As with front end development, automation and continuous delivery are important to us.
Technology at Upgrade Pack isn't just about writing code; we work in collaboration with user experience, visual design, and product management. It is a true partnership between the teams to create the best product possible and we manage that relationship using Jira, and Confluence to fully document the solution.
If you want to join the Technology team at Upgrade Pack we are hiring, and will continue to do so throughout the next six to nine months.
