About ottonova’s tech stack transparency

Hi everybody!

Aleks Dahlberg

At ottonova, we believe in being transparent about the technology stack we use. We see no reason to keep it a secret.

Possible concerns we sometimes hear are about the following two domains:

  • Security: We believe that security cannot be improved by keeping our tech stack a secret.
    In fact, discussing our tech stack openly allows us to identify and address any weaknesses or vulnerabilities. Operations and data security should always be a top priority.
  • Competition: We don’t believe that hiding our tech stack gives us any competitive advantage. Building a successful business involves much more than just assembling technology components – it’s about the team, the culture, and the experience, which cannot be easily replicated.

Our approach is to use mature technology stacks, follow best practices, and incorporate new technology components as needed. This approach is based on our years of experience building scalable web-based platforms and services.

Sharing our tech stack also helps us attract talented individuals to join our team. Which is a major motivations for us.

Welcome to our ottonova.tech blog!

Hello everybody,

with this post we want to kick off the ottonova.tech blog and also explain what it’s for.

With this blog we sincerely want to give you insights on how we create the software and platform behind ottonova. The first newly founded private health insurance in a long time.

We are assembling a strong and experienced IT team and are still growing. With a focus on everything it needs to create and run a fully digital health insurance: Multi platform software engineering, cloud infrastructure, quality assurance, data science, data security, and office IT.

Our idea is to regularly publish interesting articles about our work and how we organise.

Hopefully our content is an inspiration in one or the other way to someone.

All the best and see you soon,
Jan 🚀
