Your Team
To prepare for the company’s upcoming acceleration, a new team named “Platform & Services” is created to support our needs for transformation. This team will provide Engineering services (such as Hardware, VM, Database, LB, Queuing, Orchestrator, etc) to all product teams in order to help them focus on their true mission, i.e. bringing value to their products and to our customers.

As efficient startups use now PaaS solutions to create their products, our product teams will use our internal platform to build high-end products as well.

The Platform team is organized into “Engineering Verticals”, each vertical delivering one or more infrastructure products in a specific field of Software Engineering. This team is also responsible for securing and guaranteeing the day-to-day execution of these services and keeping them up & running.

Our team culture is all about
- Being absolute experts in each of the Engineering verticals
- Bringing amazing services & infrastructure products to our technical teams
- Sharing our best practices & knowledge
- Acting as a “true companion” for our technical teams when building new product infrastructures
- Feeling responsible for the day-to-day execution of our platform
- Working as a team - we all share the same objective of serving our customers which are, in our case, our colleagues.
