What is Data-acquisition Tribe about?
We code and deploy every day, not work with Excel and Google sheets – no need to worry. More precisely we’re a developers tribe inside Kiwi.com in charge of building the pillars of everything that’s directly related to incoming and required data. Because of that we’ve built a specific set of characters including those that are common, however, even more of those that are unique. There are moments we can fail, but we fix things asap even in streaks of high and unexpected demand.
What are we doing?
Just because we are working with data, don’t think we just work with csv files all day long – we are passionate about new technologies and we like our stack to be modern. With that mindset, we develop services and applications that are directly or indirectly related to data collection, and that are highly available, with little to no room for errors, huge space for improvements and new ideas:
- Caching correct data is much better than asking for the same data
- Bot detection and ways for minimization
- Tools for QA (eg. automation of manual tasks) and CS departments (you can imagine status change recognition before landing)
- We are even building a fortune teller service – not a joke
