I work with a team of excellent engineers on this loyalty platform called Perk. We are into developing high performance and concurrent system serving more than 85, 000 million requests per day.
I am directly involved in developing user facing API and CMS for product managers and customer support team. My day to day task involves developing, testing and maintaining Perk's backend API, documenting APIs and ensuring that they are built according to the specification agreed upon by over 15 mobile and web clients.
The tech stack is mainly PHP(Laravel and Lumen), MySql, Google Big Query, Redis, Memcache. ELK stack (Elasticsearch, Logstash, and Kibana) along with Sentry for backend application monitoring and error reporting. We use CircleCI for Continuous Integration, testing and building and custom vagrant machine for local development.
