Job Scope

A cloud-native application platform automates infrastructure provisioning and configuration, dynamically allocating and reallocating resources at deploy time based on the needs of the application. Building on a cloud-native runtime optimizes application life-cycle management, including scaling to meet demand, resource utilization, orchestration across available resources, and recovery from failures with minimum downtime.

This approach reduces the cognitive load on teams (they have less to think about) and it creates a standard way of building software. This brings additional benefits with onboarding new developers or adding additional development teams. The platform team also has a role to play in developer mentoring and support; helping development teams understand how good cloud-native software operates. 

In successful software organizations, development teams can consume core services in a self-service manner from a central platform team. Examples of such services include:

  • Infrastructure provisioning (Compute, Network, Storage)
  • CI/CD pipelines and underlying tooling
  • Standardised mechanisms to log, monitor and troubleshoot their services in all environments
  • Codified templates to create new services in line with agreed architectural patterns

This is a new function at the company and we are looking for a Senior Platform Engineer to join this growing and exciting role.

You can become a Lead in a short period of time.
