Additionally, we design, implement and test services, APIs and Data Products. Altogether, the common Platform serves our feature teams and the larger organization. We work closely with the rest of engineering with guidelines and support to ensure that our platform is reliable, scalable, maintainable and easy to use.

  • Troubleshooting large scale systems from DNS to requests going through the stack
  • Reliability engineering and testing
