About us:

Our Stack

Our tech team has built a robust, service-oriented architecture that powers 10s of thousands of devices. We’re primarily a Ruby/Elixir/Ember.js shop with some services in Node.js. Our custom hardware devices (mostly tablets) are powered by a suite of Android (Java/Kotlin) apps, which serve our Ember.js apps.


Our infrastructure runs on AWS. We are in the process of migrating to k8s on EKS. Our datastores are PostgreSQL and Redis. We use AMQP as a message bus to tie things together. 


We use GitHub, CircleCI, CodeClimate to help us get things done.


How We Work:

  • We are a team of light-hearted and international Frontend, Backend and Android Engineers.
  • We encourage teammates to bring in well-reasoned opinions, productively disagree with us and to make decisions based on technical merits – we make evidence-based decisions as a team.
  • Our leadership believes in leadership as a service, enabling our team to be performant/productive and continuously improving.  
  • We respect each other's work-life balance.
  • We strive to reduce “total cost of ownership” by upholding high code quality standards that are enforced via CI, static analysis and code reviews. 
  • We practice agile methodologies that fit our team size - a Kanban-light approach. 


We offer:

  • A team of excellent international engineers to work with
  • A product with global traction
  • A modern office, right in central Berlin
  • Swift decision making and flat hierarchies
  • A high degree of freedom in your work and full responsibility for our server infrastructure


Who we are:

As a Berlin start-up we re-defined the way hotels connect with guests. In the hotel room of the future, you’ll find guest directory, telephone, remote control, newspapers, and room service menu, all united on a single device: the SuitePad.


Use the SuitePad to make your stay just that much more special – order breakfast to your bed, make a restaurant reservation, book spa treatments, control lights and AC, or explore tourist activities around town. It’s all here on the SuitePad, at the touch of a finger.
