Backend and API Development

Strategic helps take the guesswork out of building your technology stack – providing solid recommendations on the tools and resources you need to achieve your goals. Through it's curated network of partners, Strategic has access to a deep bench of back-end developers located all over the world. Once your requirements are identified and analyzed, while taking into consideration many different factors and variables related to your specific needs, Strategic will deliver a tailored software architecture design and present options and solutions based upon that foundation.

Our Back-end, or server-side, developers are expereinced in using these poplular technologies and coding languages to create a wide range of applications:

 

  • Java, .Net/C#, Node.js, Python, Ruby on Rails, Golang, Magneto

  • Spring, Hibernate, Maven, Tomcat, Jetty

  • Spring Boot, DropWizard and ExpressJ2EE, Jersey, JPA

  • Docker, Kubernetes, Docker Swarm and Amazon Elastic Container Service

  • MySQL, Oracle, PostgreSQL, SQL Server, MariaDB and Amazon Aurora

  • Hadoop, HQL, Oracle Exadata, and Amazon Elastic MapReduce

  • Spark, Microsoft SSIS and AWS Gloo

  • Model-View-Controller, .Net Core

  • JavaScript, Node, Express, PHP

  • SQL, MySQL, PostgreSQL, Oracle, SQL Server, Redshift

  • NoSQL, MongoDB, DynamoDB, Cassandra

  • Caching, Redis, Memcached

  • Commerce, Oracle Commerce (ATG), Shopify

 

Before writing code, they will collaborate with business stakeholders to understand their particular needs, then translate those into technical requirements and come up with the most effective and efficient solution for architecting the technology and building the appropriate tech stack for the mission.

Back-end developers make the front-end of a website possible and manage where the data is stored. The back end of a website consists of a server, an application, and a database. A back-end developer builds and maintains the technology that powers those components which, together, enable the user-facing side of the website. Back-end developers also build the Application Programming Interface (API) that allows the application to integrate, or communicate, with different parts of the application, or with other external systems or platforms.

 

Some backend developers are Full Stack developers. Full stack developers, like back-end devs, do server side coding, but they are also familiar and comfortable working with front-end languages that control how content looks on a site’s user-facing side. They’re jacks-of-all-trades.

 Regardless of the specific tools, dependent on the project or client at hand, full stack developers should be knowledgeable in every level of how the web works: setting up and configuring Linux servers, writing server-side APIs, diving into the client-side JavaScript powering an application, and turning a “design eye” to the CSS.
