  • A dynamic JavaScript front-end leveraging Backbone.js, Bootstrap, and RequireJS.
  • A small but powerful C# .NET Excel add-in that treats spreadsheets as the window to a client’s data, using VSTO, Excel Interop/VBA, and LINQ technologies.
  • A RESTful API built from a Java-based DropWizard framework of Jetty, Jersey, Jackson and Google Guice to support both the web client and Excel add-in.
  • RabbitMQ, MongoDB, MySQL and a variety of caching technologies are leveraged in the application server to support the demanding data analytics provided by the API.
  • A highly available operations platform currently supported by Amazon AWS cloud infrastructure that provides a variety of services including monitoring, scalability and dynamic controls.

Our technology stack is constantly evolving because we help foster a creative environment where there are many opportunities to take ownership and grow Vena’s product ecosystem.
