The site features stack profiles of serious heavy hitters in the SaaS game. Fair warning: browsing company stacks is addictive. Visit at the risk your daily workflow.

  • Google has a reputation of playing it close to the chest with their DevOps, but you’ll find what they have in their stack.
  • You might be surprised at the simplicity of Dropbox’s toolset.
  • Find out what Yelp uses for password management for its millions of users.

This is actually a clever tool for talent recruitment   

Why would a company tip its hand, so to speak, to competitors? The incentive is that it’s a tool for onboarding talent, another way to attract developers to a growing company. Programmers are understandably finicky about the tools they use and want to see what they’re getting into with prospective employers.

Also, this kind of collaborative, open-source attitude is standard practice for this generation of tech creatives. It has come to be expected with this set.

Companies list the apps they have in their stack; a running list of job openings is found at the bottom of their page.

See for yourself. The site is worth a bookmark for anyone working in technology and interested in new apps for business.
