Requirements

Stack

We currently use AWS Fargate to host our main Django powered website, where we use the Django Templating engine to drive the majority of pages.

Alongside our main website we also use Elastic, Lambdas and a Headless Content Management System to provide extra services. Where we believe that using the right tool and language for the job is critical.
