November 22, 2016 by

Unless you’ve been in a cave for the last year, you may have noticed how “Serverless” is the new sticky word in the dev community and it’s like we’ve not had time to get used to the “Microservices” buzz. But don’t go crazy just yet, it’s not the time throw away your “still hot” blueprint of your architecture because a new trending topic has arrived. We decided to keep it cool and just experiment a little bit.

What does QA mean for Ebury?

August 31, 2016

Our teams are cross functional and fully responsible for the quality of the product they produce. We apply an end-to-end philosophy to our daily work, that is, we are responsible from user story creation through to ensuring that story is delivered, working and supported in production.
