For tech companies, this means not only picking the best languages and frameworks to build a product, but also communication and project management platforms to keep the business running. These allow employees to be efficient and effective, focusing on the tasks most essential to the organization’s mission without distractions and roadblocks. And if you’re looking for a new tech job, knowing what a company uses can provide a glimpse inside a company’s structure and culture, and help you decide if they’re a good fit for you.
