Microservices at Brex

This talk provides a high-level overview of Brex and the business domain constraints of the fintech ecosystem that shaped our decision to build out the microservice architecture in Elixir. In particular, it details how we use Elixir in conjunction with our choice of gRPC and Events as core primitives to scale our communication infrastructure.


The objective of the talk is to provide an overview of Brex and illustrate the benefits of Elixir in facilitating resilient synchronous and asynchronous communication between microservices.
