We are a tech company in hearts and minds, but understand that technology is just a means to serve our partners and travellers. Passion, teamwork, and informal communication are the basis to create a successful experience that allows every traveller to enjoy peace of mind. With true global coverage, transferz is a multilingual and multinational company and believes in fostering diversity.

Our platform

The transferz microservice platform consists of 25+ independent microservices built on Spring Boot (2.6+). The platform utilizes JPA to interact with a PostgreSQL based data store and all database schemas are managed using Flyway. We utilize GitHub for version control and have completely set up our CI/CI pipeline using GitHub Actions. Our strict quality control gateways enforced during pull requests (peer review, code styling, static code analysis, unit & integration test coverage) ensure our applications stay healthy - all services have >90% code coverage on automated tests. Our platform runs on Google Cloud Platform using Kubernetes and we use DataDog for log management and application monitoring. Our frontends are built on React and interact with the microservice platform through GraphQL.
