Stack Builders is one of the leading software consultancies that specializes in functional programming languages. They focus on digging deep to understand their clients’ needs, business models, opportunities, risks, etc, and work to build quality, pragmatic solutions to help them grow. The team is based in the US and has offices in Ecuador and now a new office in Spain.
We asked the wonderful team at Stack Builders about their work, tech stack, interviewing process, and more.
Due to non disclosure agreements, we are unable to share specific client information. However, we can share some general information about the projects and industries we’ve worked on:
We’ve helped scale an EdTech platform in 23 different languages with thousands of users for a multinational financial corporation. We used Haskell and React with TypeScript to improve concurrency and parallelism.
We worked to integrate thousands of third-party APIs using Elixir between Asian, European, and American platforms. The real-time application was able to grow with high fault tolerance, reliability, and tidy modern syntax.
We aided in bridging a Haskell backend with a ReasonML frontend on a control monitoring system for oil wells in the United States. We ensured type safety in the interaction, reducing errors and mismatches at the integration level.
We used Haskell and PureScript to scale an EdTech platform that links mentors with aspiring Ivy League university students. Our team eliminated certain classes of errors in the platform by combining a strongly typed purely functional programming paradigm in both the backend and the frontend.
We rebuilt a British global risk platform made to display multiple risk metrics in predefined worldwide locations. We used Python across infrastructure and TypeScript with D3.js to create interactive data visualizations.
If you consider one of the most important parts of your professional life to be the workplace culture, then you’ve arrived at the right place. Stack Builders has a clear mission and values that help to manifest an open, welcoming company culture. We’re an employee-first company that focuses on clear communication, curiosity, collaboration, and giving back to the community together.
