Technology

Our engineering process includes:

  • Code reviews
  • Continuous integration
  • Multiple daily automated deployments to production
  • Automated testing with >85% code coverage

Some of the technical challenges we face are:

  • Lots of data — billions of data points to track transactions and market pair prices.
  • Data structures & algorithms — automated transfer detection, cost basis tracking, tax optimization, and more. Your CS fundamentals finally come in handy!
  • Scalability — some cryptocurrency users, such as algorithmic traders, accumulate millions of transactions per year. CoinTracker needs to work seamlessly for those power crypto traders.
  • Blockchain — whether it's running our own nodes, implementing xPub address generation and traversal, or parsing smart contracts to seamlessly support decentralized trading, we get our hands dirty with core blockchain technology.
  • Technical complexity — integrating with hundreds of exchanges and blockchains, and supporting thousands of cryptocurrencies means we have to methodically architect our software and build critical monitoring systems to deliver a robust and accurate platform.

Our tech stack is:

  • Web: HTML, Javascript, React, CSS, Sass
  • Mobile: React Native, Expo, GraphQL
  • Backend: Python, Flask, GraphQL, Postgres, Redis, Python RQ
  • Infrastructure: GCP, AWS
