What you’ll be doing

The platform team is at the core of engineering at WeTransfer. You'll accelerate innovation by providing developers with the tools they need, while ensuring that the platform is reliable, performant, and secure.

    • Build and maintain our infrastructure — compute, storage and networking — for all applications to be deployed onto
    • Build and maintain our observability stack to help engineers monitor and debug their applications
    • Build and maintain services for engineers to use said infrastructure. This ranges from onboarding, deployment, secrets management, authN/Z, to continuous integration, and more.
    • Work with other teams and engineers to understand their needs and make sure we're building the right services

What we are looking for:

    • Above all else we value open communication and good teamwork to achieve a shared vision. We are looking for proactivity in spotting problem areas and proposing ideas for improvements. You value good engineering principles and long-term design.
