About the team

The platform team at EverTrue is staffed with folks who take pride in their work and approach programming as a craft. We take our crunch times seriously but also know when to step away and have fun.

We strive for building systems in such a way that lends credence to sustainability and resiliency. Part of our model is that backend developers own virtually everything including but not limited to, testing and operations. They run their own EC2 instances, monitoring, alerting, and testing. We believe this produces a natural incentive to do quality work and lends itself to good judgement on when to ship. And yes, developers get their own deploy button.

The team is responsible for seven REST APIs, some engineers own two but most own and concentrate on one. Along with that are several backend data processing components and jobs built on top of Hadoop and Storm. These are shared amongst various members of the team.
