    About Us

    Virool's Engineering Culture

    We're a small, efficient team that believes in high alignment and high autonomy. We have a well-defined company and product vision that allows our engineers to be SELF-managed and work in teams to determine the best solutions to solve our goals.

    We take pride in developing scalable systems capable of handling over 1MM requests per minute. Our system has grown from 1 to over 100 servers in the last two years and we’ve expanded our multi-application stack to include multiple technologies working cohesively ( Ruby, Scala, Clojure, RabbitMQ, Postgres, Redis, Aerospike, ElasticSearch, Angular ) with fully automated deployment and infrastructure management using Chef.
