It's a much more positive, open, and collaborative culture.”

Our tech stack

"What does your tech stack look like?" is one of the most common questions we get from engineering applicants. It's not exactly simple to answer, but our vice president of engineering loves laying out the different possibilities!

Rather than having enterprise architects make these decisions, our teams are empowered to come up with their own ideas about which tools or technologies best fit a particular problem. Click below to learn more about the six "worlds" in our tech stack, along with how we utilize different platforms in our day-to-day operations.

How ExpressVPN does engineering

Here's a general sense of how we approach engineering:

  • TDD by default.

  • Always CI/CD: Test suites should pass in CI within five minutes. Deployments should be fully automated, such that the time-delta between a release and the timestamp of the most recent commit should be measured in minutes.

  • Let data speak the truth—rely less on opinions. Therefore, lots of split-testing and metrics, of course within privacy constraints.

  • Security: "Be very difficult to hack" as described in our Trust Center.

  • Automate as much as possible. It's rare that anyone here needs convincing that something is worth automating.
