About the Product
Our web front-end platform was relaunched in 2020. The platform was completely rebuilt on a modern tech stack, leveraging TypeScript, React, and the open source Next.js framework for a seamless single-page application experience. Server-side rendering provides a fast initial load and excellent SEO optimization. We handle a sustained load of 150'000 requests/min, with peaks regularly exceeding 300'000.

In order to iterate rapidly and have new features reach users' hands as quickly as possible, we have a modern CI/CD workflow where we deploy to production multiple times per day.

Now, we want to bring this same rapid iteration cycle to our native app. To that end, we're looking into integrating parts of the web front-end into our native apps. However, it's very important that the native app delivers a premium user experience, so some things will certainly remain native. Help us find the best mix of both worlds!
