Fintech launch. DevOps revelations

DevOps? – administrators, responsible for everything, IT architects, understand security, understand business, know how to code, their own among the developers, save costs and, just pleasant interlocutors. Add to it … we at Vivid Money can go on with this list for a very long time ..

In our cozy, fast-growing and endlessly ambitious startup, DevOps these are their guys on the board, thanks to whom:

  • products and services are released several times a day;

  • infrastructure without failures and downtime is able to withstand repeated loads;

  • customer data and money are reliably protected,

  • the business is stable and growth-oriented;

We are over a year old. Of course, at first everything was not so rosy and smooth, and even now there are surprises from time to time, but we are balanced, our approaches and practices are sustainable, which allows us to guarantee the reliability of our infrastructure, and business to develop in an extremely aggressive competitive Fintech environment.

In the summer of 2020, Fintech startup Vivid Money launched in Europe. At the moment, our services cover the TOP countries of continental Europe, we have hundreds of thousands of active customers, we offer several dozen high-tech products that are available through a single interface of the mobile application.

Are we proud of this? – Yes!

Do we want to stop there? – Not!

At one of the recent DevOps daily, we summed up the outgoing year, analyzed mistakes and analyzed achievements, and planned activities for the coming year. And, looking back, we realized that a huge (from scratch!), Systematic work had been done, the results of which we would like to share with the outside world.

In short:

With this introductory article, we commit ourselves to release once a month on a technical article (without any lyrics) over the next year. In the articles we will talk about our DevOps practices and victorious days.

Next year:
