The Microservices Platform produces shared libraries & tools built on the best available technologies to increase the throughput of 400+ engineers & accelerate product release cycles.
Our internal products include a Spring Boot microservices framework that simplifies their interactions with our Kubernetes infrastructure & makes it easy to follow best practices. As the organization grows, the engineering needs have diversified. We are in the middle of reimagining how our tooling can best serve engineers three years from now! This includes integration with cloud native technologies & replacing our internal RPC system. If you are a server-side engineer who enjoys taking ownership of projects & carrying them from concept to adoption, we want to hear from you! You will report to the engineering manager in our New York City headquarters.
