We are excited to announce that since the beginning of July we have been working closely together with our newest partner – Hopper. Hopper is a Montreal-based company, providing a smart way to book travel on a mobile phone. They were founded in 2007 and since then have opened offices in three more locations – Greater Boston, USA, New York, USA and Sofia, Bulgaria. Their application combines massive amounts of data and advanced machine learning algorithms to predict and analyze airfare and accommodation to save users money and enable them to travel more often.
With over 42 million app downloads Hopper is currently in the process of expanding its services, involving DataStork engineers in the core team, based at Sofia. For the project at hand our specialists will be utilising Scala to help build the backend to support the new service.
