Our Technology Stack
We work with all the latest software and work with it at scale.
The core of our systems is actually virtual - it's Amazon Web Services. We use S3 for storage, CloudFront for static content delivery, EBS for core storage, ec2 for instance hosting, ELB for load balancing, Route53 for DNS, ElastiCache (memcached) for caching, and SQS for message queueing.
Our favorite language is Python (2.7) because it allows us to leverage so many great libraries like Celery for queuing, boto for working with AWS, and requests for moving around the web. Of course, we also need a web framework in order to make Python developer friendly (and safe), so we use Django to organize all of our models, views, and controllers.
On the front-end we use jQuery just like everybody else and backbone.js for keeping it all sane. And last but not least, we couldn't do any of this unless we were on the fantastic Ubuntu Linux operating system (well, we could, but Ubuntu is the best). We like staying on the bleeding edge so we're on Ubuntu 12.04 right now.
