If you’re an engineer with a good cloud infrastructure background, and you’re eager to elevate your experience with systems, tooling, and libraries, this could be the role for you. As a team, we’re responsible for designing, building, and operating the services we consume from AWS, along with the software we run on top like Kubernetes, Kafka, Redis, PostgreSQL, and more. We’re also responsible for operating our network and being on-call for the things we own and run.

To achieve this, we’re organised into three teams within the Platform Universe; Platform Engineering, Data Engineering, and Operations. Each squad is responsible for solving a specific set of problems for our customers and our engineers. We’re looking for engineers who are interested in joining our platform engineering universe, to help ensure that our systems and applications perform optimally, meeting the highest standards of reliability and efficiency.
