Elinvar enables asset & wealth managers to digitalize their business models by providing the required Platform as a Service.

With this comprehensive approach, we create the unique opportunity for our partners to go digital in one step and to utilize state of the art analytics to create individualized solutions to the benefit of their clients.

About the technical stack: The platform consists of 100+ microservices which are mainly based on Java and Spring Boot. Backend services communicate through Kafka. The backend communicates with frontend through Rest API. Data is stored in Postgres. Services run in Docker containers on three AWS data centers in high availability mode, managed by Kubernetes. The frontend is based on React.JS. We use GitLab for source control and continuous integration. In our agile development processes we are following either Scrum or KANBAN methodology.
