Summitto is an award-winning startup building the largest invoice registration network of the world. The purpose? Helping EU tax authorities to eliminate 50 billion EUR in annual invoicing fraud.

We are a fully technology focused company. Summitto wishes to make truly privacy-by-design technology available for the masses, through an open-source effort. We believe governments should use the tools which are in taxpayers best interest.

By working closely as a team, we get the chance to make our engineering principles a reality. And maybe you have some great ideas to improve them! The founders of summitto set out to build a great company which respects people from all backgrounds. Some aspects which make us unique compared to other companies: We over-communicate internally, we share beyond our walls, we respect humans, not just code, and we always keep learning.

About our software

You will get to work on bleeding-edge technology, with new groundbreaking challenges to solve every day. Think of:

  • Keeping our P2P networking infrastructure secure
  • Inventing fraud-identification algorithms and making existing ones more efficient
  • Getting into the nitty-gritty of scalable signature creation and verification
  • Refining the testing infrastructure of our distributed database

You'll be delighted to find that the software we write is all about elegant and modern C++. We have a clear set of principles to handle this versatile language. We mostly adhere to the Google C++ style guide, but adjust or replace this when it makes sense for us.

We also use the occasional Golang and Python for certain web services and for our testing suite, but these are relatively minor parts of our infrastructure. We use the best tools for the job, and when those involve different languages and frameworks, we don't shy away from the challenge.

When it comes to libraries, we make use of a modest set of well-vetted names. Boost is essential to us, and we use e.g., Boost.asio for networking. Libsodium is our essential cryptographic toolkit. And even though we have an extensive self-built testing infrastructure, we see the strengths of the GTest testsuite for our unit tests, which run after every build.
