A third project for Rundit
We're working back with Rundita Finnish company we worked for between 2015 and 2017. In 2017, they decided to migrate their Ruby on Rails codebase to Node.js, so we had to stop working for them because we didn't do Node.js at the time. That's no longer the case, and they hired us for a Javascript project last year. Now, we're back to doing full development for them.
