We are focused on improving the productivity of the engineering squads via tooling (such as CI pipelines) and core shared capabilities (AWS, Networks, DNS, Etc).

A bit about you

You can mentor and coach the wider engineering team using your knowledge and experience to drive improvements across the platform. 
You’re passionate about automation and demonstrate a curious mindset, you help identify and avoid performance bottlenecks. 
You’re able to communicate complex issues to someone with less knowledge on the subject than you.
