All of the software used at YourSurprise was built in-house. From online personalisation software and automatically placed purchase orders (based on an in-house developed machine learning model) to our own webshop (active in 29 countries) and controlling the machines and printers in our Production department.
Our IT team consists of 30 passionate software engineers, divided into smaller autonomous teams led by Nick and Yola. Each team is responsible for a specific domain with YourSurprise. We feel it’s important to learn from each other, so get together to do so on a weekly basis. We use a wide range of techniques and programming languages, including PHP (Symfony), TypeScript (React, Vue), NodeJS and Python, so there’s something for everyone. When starting a project, we determine which programming language and frameworks are most suitable.
