About WebinarGeek

WebinarGeek was founded in 2015 in Zoetermeer, Netherlands.

We do webinar hosting for organisations. In other words, WebinarGeek is webinar software you can use to host interactive online presentations to provide groups of people with information.

We work hard to design intuitive and easy-to-use solutions for online marketing and communication challenges.

Software should never be a barrier for someone to start hosting webinars. Which is what actually makes software that important for us. We spend as much time as we need to make sure that what we build is good, that it solves someone's problem, that is makes the product better or helps us to reach new markets. Quality is embedded into every process, and it starts with people. We want people on our team who feel this philosophy and to write code that works and is maintainable in every possible aspect.

We work with Ruby on Rails as our core framework, we always use one of the most recent versions.

As for the front-end, we work with Javascript, jQuery, CSS/Sass. We are slowly making our way to front-end frameworks such as React and Vue.

Other tools, protocols or languages that make our stack are MySQL, Redis, websockets and Git. We also have tools written in or build upon Java, PHP, WebRTC, AWS Lambda, Phoenix and Elixir.
