Technical information:

The application comprises a PHP (7.4) app that communicates with a number of internal (Scala) and third-party services via HTTP. The UI is a mixture of jQuery and React (using Typescript).

The app and all services are deployed in Docker containers running in a Kubernetes cluster on AWS.

All data is persisted in a MYSQL (AWS Aurora) database.
