Rails-inspired tech -- Turbolinks (for web an iOS), StimulusJS, Postgres as a primary datastore, and Redis to store sessions
For Go specific tech, we have our own partially complete internal web framework. We use go-pg as our ORM-ish library and have a fork of HTTPTreeMux as a router. We also have a fork of unrolled/render that we use as a view library.
For frontend tech, we use plain HTML and CSS -- no preprocessor. Our CSS codebase started with bass.css, and we've added extra functionality from there. Our only JS dependencies are Turbolinks, Stimulus, and the Google Maps API. We use webpack.
For external dependencies, we rely on ERP's API for pulling our customer's product data. ERP APIs are normally painful to work with, so any experience working with a less-than-perfect API is great to have
