We’re all full-stack engineers who believe in end-to-end ownership of products, as we manage anything from rows in databases to pixels on the screen. We believe in testing everything from code to design and aspire to create the best experience for all of Watsi’s users. Our stack is Rails, Backbone.js, SCSS, Postgres, Redis, Sidekiq, Heroku, RSpec, and Jasmine.
