We are Rentman!
In short, Rentman is a leading software provider for professionals in the event industry. Working under the same roof in the heart of Utrecht (NL), our international team aims to make the lives of event rental companies across the globe as easy as can be.
We aspire to make our everyday hustle a growing opportunity, and our workplace exciting to work at. Visit our careers page to learn more about what we stand for.
Founded and managed by developers, Rentman puts technology first. Our engineers are given all the tools needed to get the job done and be happy doing so. We focus on one product and believe in long-term solutions instead of temporary workarounds.
Our young and interdisciplinary development team of developers work agile on various bigger and smaller challenging and rewarding projects. Our workflow is developer-first, aiming to get things built as efficiently as possible. To keep yawns at bay, we keep admin tasks to a minimum and create tools to eradicate boring and repetitive jobs. Plus, we don’t work with deadlines, because we believe in the intrinsic motivation of developers.
We come from a traditional monolithic PHP background. We have spend a fair amount of effort on decoupling our services and building the leanest and fastest data gateway we could think of. Along the way we embraced microservices, a serverless architecture (AWS Lambda & Fargate) for some of our services, came up with our own query language and designed a modern build- and deployment process that fits our organisation.
modern OO PHP 7 framework
websockets (NodeJS and SocketIO) to sync data between clients
AWS services are the backbone of our stack (ECS, Fargate, RDS, SQS, S3, Lambda). We design for high-availability and we deploy our services in multiple regions. We utilize docker containers a lot and have a CI/CD pipeline for most of the microservices we deploy.
SPA build upon AngularJS, written in Typescript.
our long term vision is to fully migrate to Angular. Characteristic for our frontend is that it has an advanced caching layer that is kept in sync between clients through websocket triggers.
SCSS using BEM methodology
compilation and bundling done by Webpack
we work based on "Continuous integration" so our systems can be separately run on different versions
