Tech Stack

The main tools we use in our backend include Typescript, Go, Ruby, Twirp, GraphQL, RabbitMQ, and many AWS services (Aurora, Lambda, DynamoDB, etc). Some of the projects that engineers at Remind have worked on this year: Moved a significant amount of traffic to a GraphQL proxy to make it easy to write consistent and performant client code across web, iOS and android. Improved and scaled a messaging system that's sent over 10 billion messages to teachers, parents, and students Built a graph service to power the relationships of 31 million monthly active users Built out standardized tooling for increasing the fault tolerance of our distributed services, including tiered load shedding, circuit breakers, and back pressure mechanisms Created a declarative permissions system to make authorization code easy to read and write Increased the stability of our chats database by introducing a write-through buffer using Redis
