The Tech Stack
Instant Teams delivers a unique platform to match, build, and manage remote employees for customer companies. The platform itself consists of three components – a talent facing portal to help talent grow their careers and find unique opportunities, a customer facing portal that helps companies request carefully sourced teams and manage their teams; and finally a sophisticated data platform that uses search algorithms and eventually machine learning to build teams that match client’s needs.
Web Application: The web Application is built using the React front-end framework. Use of this technology improves the componentization of the front end and thereby increases the flexibility of the display of records and other content. The same technology is in use for all the components of the platform – Talent Portal, the Customer Portal, and the Admin Portal.
Webserver: The back-end servers are AWS EC2 instances running Node.js. The servers are implemented in a multi-node cluster running behind an AWS high-availability load balancer. All communication from the internet with the webservers requires SSL encryption over HTTPS, and only traffic on HTTPS port is allowed. While not yet turned on, the load balancer can be configured with a firewall and a service to prevent denial of service attack (DDoS shield). Furthermore, all access can be logged and stored in AWS CloudWatch. The disk storage for webservers can also be encrypted.
Database Layer: The system uses the AWS RDS (postgres) database cluster. The database can be encrypted. All data access to this database is via HTTPS, and the database itself can only be accessed from within the virtual private network by specific servers. RDS data will be backed up daily. The database general log, which contains all database connections and complete query history can be sent and stored in AWS CloudWatch. The encryption and logging features are not yet turned on to save on AWS costs.
