Senior Platform Engineer

Boston, MA

The Team:

The Services Platform and our Management Interface (TMI) team empowers other engineering teams to focus less on boilerplate and infrastructure and more on building business value.  We build and support tools and patterns that are considered best practices.  We own the  Management Interface platform, the foundation of user-facing internal tooling.  We operate like a product team where our platform is the product we offer to our customers, other engineering teams. Our mission is to provide an easy-to-use and delightful developer experience for our customers to let them focus on building software products.


What we do:

  • Engage with other engineering teams to understand their challenges and pain points, and participate in turning that into an actionable roadmap

  • Be an evangelist and educator about opportunities to leverage platform functionality to help free up otherwise wasted development time

  • Build, maintain and evolve a reference implementation of the platform for others to copy, tweak and build upon

  • Create and maintain a high standard for platform "golden path" documentation

  • Work with teams to extend the platform with cutting edge or new technologies in a way that future teams can then leverage

  • Scope out, build, maintain, own and operate services that provide functionality to other services (e.g. notification management, proxies to common 3rd party data sources, etc)


What you bring to the party:

  • Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science or equivalent experience and 2+ years of experience in Software Engineering, DevOps or similar role

  • Strong programming skills in Python or an equivalent language

  • Working knowledge of Python frameworks, such as Django, Flask, etc

  • Experience working with relational databases (MySQL, Postgres) and designing data models

  • Experience in microservice architecture design and best practices

  • Experience with CI/CD, observability, automated testing, monitoring and alerting

  • Exposure to modern frontend development languages and frameworks (e.g. TypeScript/JavaScript, React, Vue)

  • You’re either a software engineer who loves devops and automating infrastructure or you’re a devops expert with some software engineering background


Nice to haves:

  • 5+ years of experience in Software Engineering, DevOps or a mixture of the two

  • Expert level programming skills with Python

  • Knowledge of Docker, Kubernetes, Amazon Web Services, and the concepts of GitOps

  • Experience developing within a distributed GraphQL ecosystem or Federated GraphQL

  • Experience architecting client-side Single Page Applications using frameworks like Next.js
