We use hardware we love
and software we build upon

All who care about their craft take pride in their tools. Using best-in-class technologies helps us to do our best work.

Absence

absence.io is the vacation management tool of choice for K15t Software, allowing us to simplify the coordination of our valuable vacation time across teams and departments without tedious spreadsheets and confusing communication threads.

Adobe Creative Suite

Our marketing, design, and UX folks use Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign, and other Creative Suite programs to produce visuals that keep our brand and products looking spiffy.

Amazon Web Services

Our cloud infrastructure is completely based on Amazon Web Services. We run as much code as possible on AWS Lamda. More complex code is run behind load-balancers on EC2 instances for better scalability.

Angular JS

After having built a lot of UIs with jQuery spaghetti code, using AngularJS was a major step forward in building attractive, maintainable and usable user interfaces. However, we are now moving to React instead of Angular 2.

Bamboo

Continuous integration is important if you want to maintain developing at a fast pace and high-quality level. With Bamboo, we can easily scale across servers and even spin up AWS instances, should we require a bit more power.

Bitbucket

We love Bitbucket. It is tightly integrated with JIRA and works well for us. We use the hosted version of Bitbucket because this eliminates a lot of potential headaches caused by updates for example. We use Github for our open-source projects.

Confluence

We use Atlassian Confluence to organize our work, create documents, and discuss projects of all sizes and colors. It's the beating heart of our collaborative approach.

Hazelcast

We use a cluster of EC2 nodes to scale our export infrastructure. Hazelcast provides a stable and reliable mechanism for these nodes to communicate and synchronize.

HipChat

We use Atlassian HipChat to share ideas and files quickly, stay connected with group chat rooms and video chats, and get friendly bot reminders about lunch orders.

HubSpot

Our marketing team uses HubSpot among other technologies to manage our contacts and give them a high-quality, personalized communication experience.

IntelliJ IDEA

We have been using IntelliJ for years and have fallen in love with it. The license fee is worth every penny. Of course our developers can choose their own IDE, but most new developers quickly switch to IntelliJ or WebStorm (for front-end development).

JIRA

We use Atlassian JIRA to plan, track, release, and report on software development projects following agile methodology, and to manage projects and tasks across our business teams as well.

Laptops & Monitors

All team members work on the high-end laptop of their choice, with 1–2 large external monitors as preferred. Most use Macbook Pro 15" models with lots of RAM, big SSD drives, and stickers aplenty. Windows and Linux machines are options too.

Less

We use Less to develop our user interfaces, website and the Scroll PDF Exporter template. There are other alternatives available but Less has been working well for us.

Maven

To be honest, we love and hate Maven. However, we have known each other for a long time and still get along well enough – even when facing multi-module projects, complex dependencies etc.

Nexus

We decided on using Nexus pretty early on and we have been happy with it ever since. Especially the local proxy in our office speeds things up once "Maven starts downloading the internet".

ReactJS

We decided to utilize React quite late. Most existing add-on user interfaces are based on Angular 1, but our front-end team decided to use React and Redux in 2016 as they much preferred this option.

Sketch & Marvel

We think Sketch is the best tool to design websites and web applications with. We even integrated it with JIRA (let us know if you are interested). Marvel lets us turn our designs into prototypes which we use for demos and user testing.

Spring & Spring Boot

Some of our developers have been using Spring since before its 1.0 release and Atlassian server add-ons are based on Spring. We use Spring Boot for our cloud add-ons if AWS Lambdas doesn't work.

Visual Paradigm

If we need to model in UML, we use Visual Paradigm. It helps us stay organised when starting a big project and it’s very helpful to have diagrams when new developers join the team.

Webpack

Webpack is our favorite tool to set up new projects with. We especially like the webpack dev server for fast turn-around times. We no longer use GulpJS as much but it’s still in use for some projects.
