We are Visual Meta, an innovative Berlin-based internet company, which has grown to over 200 employees since its foundation in 2009. And we’re still growing at relentless pace. We run online shopping portals in 19 countries across three continents under the brands LadenZeile.de, umsolugar.com.br, Shoppala.com and ShopAlike.in.
Our fast growth also challenged our IT department in scaling the IT operations. Marco, our Head of Backend Engineering, and Wesley, one of our Backend Engineers, will describe what kind of challenges we have been facing at Visual Meta and how using git flow and Hadoop helped to solve them.
