Our core backend is written in PHP, and we build our code on top of Symfony 5 and Doctrine ORM. This part is complemented by Python components covering workload control and decision logic for several warehouse processes, with plans to extend even further. In addition, Python completely controls our warehouse automatic conveyor! We store our data in MySQL (AWS Aurora with MySQL compatibility) and use RESTful APIs to communicate with the client-side. We run the entire system in Kubernetes in the AWS cloud, where we run hundreds of Docker containers. Finally, Datadog handles monitoring and centralized logging. Besides the fast development cycle and frequent production deployments, we also care about the quality and performance of our code; we do two-round code reviews and support" the solutions. This all helps us to write better solutions and understand our customers better.
