We started this company in 2009 as engineers hailing from Berlin & Amsterdam.
Five years later we've released a ton of open source software, are dept-free, profitable, and still privately owned.
Thousands of automated unit tests, system tests, integration tests, visual diffs allows to do two steps forward, and none back.
Our scaling algorithm and Amazon EC2 agreements allow us to spin up 500 machines in 5 minutes sharp in datacenters in the US and Europe. You can set a continental preference, or let us decide what performs best based on the location of your end users.
We often blog about all of this, too.
