    • Split up the monolith into different microservices that enabled us to move deployments from a 2-week cycle to a couple of times a week, allowing faster pushes to production.
    • Introduced Jenkins CI build, leading to more consistent and zero downtime deployments. As a result, the migration moved from Bitbucket pipelines to Jenkins.
