    We’re looking for a Platform Engineer / Software Developer (m / f / d) with several years of experience who will help us fulfill our mission to enable product teams focus on delivering value.

    You will join a multidisciplinary team with different nationalities, backgrounds and experience levels. The agile team is distributed across a couple of our locations, oa Berlin and London.

    The job is based in our new location in Lisbon where you will join with other Software Developers and Engineerings as part of Springer Nature’s digital product development team.

    You’ll be part of our big community of developers and engineers located in Germany, UK and India, to name a few.

    About us :

    Engineering Enablement

    We enable product teams to focus on delivering value to the business. By partnering with the product teams we create scalable and reusable building blocks, to continuously increase autonomy.

    Platform as a Service

    We have built a platform serving hundreds of developers around the world. We provide centralised services like logging, metrics, CI / CD and caching to developers who deploy hundreds of times per day.

    We continually improve our platform and work with them to solve their problems before they become ours. We are a distributed team but sometimes we travel to work with each other in person.

    We’re currently based in London, Dordrecht, Berlin, Wiesbaden and Vienna; we come from diverse backgrounds and countries.

    We have tons of room for innovation. Our platform is stable and the future is wide open so there is plenty of opportunity to execute your ideas at work.

    Every other Friday is Hack Day when we can spend the day doing anything. We like to go to conferences and present at them too.

    We experiment with new ways of working and like to try things out before saying no .

    We run infrastructure at scale :

    Cloud Foundry 6000 requests / second

    Cloud Foundry 1200 apps (microservices)

    4000 deployments to our platform per week

    Some of the services that compliment the platform are :

    CDN global caching (Fastly)

    Varnish for local caching

    CI / CD

    RabbitMQ as a service

    Prometheus as a service

    CI / CD

    We offer Concourse as our CI / CD solution together with a tool to make the creation of a concourse pipeline easier. The work involves monitoring the platform, helping developers with problems and continuously looking to contribute to the Concourse project.

    Some of our plans

    We are leveraging Google’s Cloud Platform to make our platform more scalable, reliable and available.

    To keep up with rapid developments in the CF community we are reviewing our deployment strategy, making sure we can quickly (re)deploy Cloud Foundry and upgrade continuously using CI.

    We are making more and more use of Kubernetes as a backend container platform and looking for ways to integrate this into our platform.

    We also aim to improve the user experience of our services, by making it more apparent what we offer, why we offer it and how to use it.

    Making onboarding easier and focus on making things self service wherever we see fit.

    About you :

    You are a friendly team member who is modest and humble, open to learn from anyone regardless of age, gender, race, role or experience.

    You value social interactions and are able to self-reflect by asking questions. You are self-conscious and smart, but never a smart-ass.

    You favour building relationships over building systems. Continuously looking for improvement, but not chasing perfection and accepting failure.

    You have a strong preference of working together and sharing knowledge as opposed to quickly getting things done alone. We care more about these qualities than technical knowledge, however technically we’re like the following ideas and concepts :

    DevOps principles like infrastructure as code, continuous delivery

    Platform as a Service (currently open source Cloud Foundry)

    Implementing solutions for cloud services, focusing on high availability, disaster recovery, scaling and performance

    Programming - we mainly use Golang, but we are free to pick the language that fits best to the solution.

    We highly value potential not just experience, so don't feel you have to tick all the boxes we’re looking forward to your application!

    After reviewing your CV we will contact you to schedule a short initial phone / video call. After getting this first impression we'll have a brief written assessment, followed by an on-site interview consisting of two parts, one technical and one cultural.
