More about PKC
Our vision is to create new ways in the wilderness for the weak to know truth and live free. Our mission to get there is to solve impossible problems for visionaries.
We are a developer-heavy software consultancy that builds best-in-industry software and provides best-in-industry engineers for our clients. PKC is now entering its fifth year of operation. We are structured a bit like a law firm - flat, with several partners. We have a growing set of clients and projects, each with its own project lead and team of engineers. We love breaking new ground with our clients.
We're polyglots! We've transitioned from using Clojure exclusively previously to using more Node.js and React.js for our upcoming projects, but are always open to new technologies that are aligned with the task at hand.
Frontend: primarily React.js. We do mobile apps with React Native, but have used Dart + Flutter as well. We use InVision/Sketch/Zeplin for wireframing + design.
Backend: formerly Clojure and have now transitioned to Node.js. Other things we hack in: Go/Rust/Python/Bash/Haskell.
Database/Persistence: PostgreSQL, Cassandra, Redis, Elasticsearch, Neo4j
Infrastructure: AWS, Azure, GCP, Heroku for infrastructure. CircleCI, Ansible, Terraform for CI. ZeroTier, ZeroMQ, Nginx, Lambdas/Azure Functions for miscellaneous tasks.
PM/Collaboration: As an architect, you'll get input here, in conjunction with the Project manager. Current we use GitHub projects, Trello, G-Suite and Slack.
