Our Tech Stack
Our products run on a stack that ranges from guest and restaurant-facing Android tablets to
backend services in Java to internal, guest-facing and restaurant-facing web apps. Our backend
services follow a microservice architecture written using Java and DropWizard; we use AWS
extensively, ranging from DynamoDB to RDS to Lambda. We have our own platform for dealing
with user management, canary deployments, and robust load balancing. We store data in a set
of sharded Postgres databases and utilize Apache Spark for large scale data workloads

including query and batch processing. The web front-end is built using React and ES6. Our
main point of sale application is an Android application written in Java and Kotlin. For data
between tablets and our cloud platform, we rely on Pulsar event driven architecture along with
some RabbitMQ clusters as well as direct tablet communication to the back end.
