What we do

Helping our customers find what they are looking for easily, quickly and unambiguously is the sole most important factor that influences what we do in Engineering at Xrysi Eukairia. Areas of focus of our engineers are developing high traffic and always-on web applications specialized in classifieds, optimizing code to run faster and adding features that make the journey of our customers easier. We've recently completed the first part of our migration to the cloud and we're continuing strongly to complete our migration journey.

We do not believe that working overtime is more productive. We keep a sustainable, normal working hours schedule. We also don't want our team to be constrained by h/w, so our workstations are typically top notch (powerful i7s, lots of RAM, M.2 disks and dual 24'' monitors).

A big part of our web stack is Java mixed in with some Python. Apart from the application servers where one finds Tomcat and Apache, we also use RabbitMQ, MySql, Memcached and MongoDB. During our daily life we make heavy use of JetBrains and Atlassian tools. When we push releases to staging or production, we use Jenkins for our CI/CD pipeline but very recently we also pushed our first serverless application to production directly from IntelliJ.

We've been coding for the last 15 years so bumping on the occasional piece of legacy code is unavoidable - however, we've been working diligently towards making our systems work in a loosely coupled manner and breaking up pieces of functionality to micro services that are easier to understand and maintain. Most of our services are for internal use but some are public and accessible from our customers as you can see in our developers page.
