Tinloof helped us build a new version of our website that is completely customisable from a Headless CMS called Sanity.
This saved us months of engineering work and helped us rank number 1 on Google for certain terms.
We were also able to benefit from their web development expertise to launch a referral program and a live chat.
They are true experts in their field and more importantly kind human beings that are great to work with.

Working with Tinloof has been an absolute pleasure. We needed to localize our entire e-commerce site and they have done an outstanding job from start to finish. The final product is very easy to use and our whole team can utilize the backend with very little training. I would like to give a shout-out to Seif, who was incredible through the whole process. He was very professional and he has a huge amount of knowledge. I would 100% recommend and I look forward to working with them again in the future.

About Tinloof

We're a backend development company that consists of 10 experienced software engineers and designers that are proud of the work they deliver.

We care about the scalability, security, and speed of the backend services we implement. This is reflected in our choice of programming languages, frameworks, and deployment platforms.

How Tinloof develops backend services

Research

This is the first step of any backend development project we handle.

From the first contact with us, we try to paint a picture of your requirements and do research to come up with a high-level architecture of a solution and the tech stack required before we have a proposal ready.

Our backends are strictly typed

We use TypeScript, a programming language built on top of JavaScript, to implement backend services that are strictly typed.

Using TypeScript with a strict configuration makes it possible for us to ship reliable code that is easy to understand and hand over.

It also makes it easy to reliably scale, refactor and share information about how the data is structured with the frontend.

Backend for web applications

We build web applications using full stack React frameworks such as Remix or Next.js.

The frameworks we use are designed to build modern backend architectures that are divided into microservices that can be hosted on any deployment framework such as Vercel, Netlify, or AWS.

Using a full stack framework is a huge advantage because we jump into the development of the backend services in no time without having to worry on how to run or host them.

Backend for mobile and TV applications

Backend services don't have to be necessarily tied to web applications.

We also build backend structures for mobile and TV apps and use Vercel or your favorite deployment platform to host them as a scalable microservices architecture.

The advantage of using Vercel is that we can deploy these microservices on the Edge, making them as close as possible to your users, which is a huge performance advantage.

Authentication and database management

We use Supabase to rapidly implement authentication without reinventing the wheel.

From a traditional email-password login to magic links, we've implemented any login/signup flow you can think of.

We use PostgreSQL as a Database Management System and Supabase makes it possible to create and host a Prostges database instantly.

It also provides a UI to browse the database data, manage users, and even run SQL queries.

Frequently asked questions

What is backend development?

Web and mobile applications provide features to their users. There are 2 sides to these features: the interface users interact with, and a program behind the scenes that does all the work for the feature to operate.

The program that does all the work behind the scenes is a backend service, which is what a backend developer works on.

Modern backend systems are composed of microservices, programs that each take care of 1 specific feature or function, and backend developers create them and make sure they are scalable enough to handle any traffic.

How much does it cost to hire a backend development company?

The cost of hiring a backend web development company depends on the number of and complexity of features to build.

We're able to provide a fixed price when we have a clear picture of everything to build, otherwise we're flexible enough to help you figure it out through a research phase or an ongoing agreement based on a daily rate.

How long does backend development take?

This is also very tied to the scope of the work to be done and a research phase is crucial to estimate a timeline.
