InstaMotion Retail GmbH is an associated company of Allianz with the aim of revolutionizing the purchase of used vehicles. We are not a car dealer in the traditional sense, but an online transaction platform for the purchase of used cars with an end-to-end service approach. And because this still sounds too complicated: You can order your new used car directly online, get it delivered to your front door and drive off right away.

For the last couple of months, our development teams have been working on slicing up our legacy monolith PHP application into microservices at the same time moving all infrastructure into AWS. Therefore we are currently building in between two worlds.

Our current tech stack: React, TypeScript, Node.js, GraphQL, Jest, AWS, Docker, Terraform, microservices; We are migrating from: PHP, Laravel, Vue.js, PostgreSQL.
