Here are some of the tools we use:

- React Native (iOS & Android) with custom native extensions where necessary
- Detox Testing for end-to-end testing
- Flow for static type checking
- Apollo Client for managing API communications
- Redux for state management

Backend / API
- Ruby on Rails
- GraphQL
- RSpec for unit testing
- PostgreSQL
- Amazon S3 for CDN
- CircleCI for continuous integration
