We run on a Rails backend with mostly vanilla JavaScript on the front end, and some Preact sprinkled in. One of our goals is to move to mostly Preact for our front end.

Additional technologies and services are listed on our docs.

Yup, pretty much. The web site performance is no accident. The DEV Team strives to make the site as fast as possible.
