What are we building?

We've built out a cutting-edge in-house platform for powering the Plenti machine, and we're not done yet.
Our engineering team is key to powering Plenti's big ambitions moving forward and we're looking for someone to help reinforce reliability engineering within our technology teams. This person would be contributing a combination of hands-on engineering, as well as evangelism and teaching within the wider engineering teams.

Our platform is largely powered by event driven microservices, the majority of which runs on Linux containers. Our entire environment is cloud native, running on AWS. We utilise modern patterns, and tooling, and are always looking to improve.

Our engineers deploy to production many times a day via automated pipelines, and reliability is key to our ability to continuously deploy our workloads. We don't believe that releasing software requires downtime, and we embrace processes that allow our teams to move faster. This is why reliability engineering is important to us.
