About the Team
We're the Reliability team who focus on Platform under the Mobility Marketplace group. We're a small family of 12 engineers who are split into 3 sub-teams specializing in back-end, front-end & ML. Our team’s objectives include platformization, reliability concerns of systems within the marketplace, and moving towards a composable architecture where new features can be shipped for experimentation by businesses in a matter of days.
The team is actively working on key projects, like one that'll give us the ability to propagate domain schema definitions to the dependent micro-services automatically without depending on engineering bandwidth, and another about coming up with a unified gateway for marketplace services to have control over client access patterns. We act as a central binding agent for the Pricing, Supply and Matchmaking teams. It’s our job to ensure the overall architecture and infrastructure is flexible, scalable, and able to withstand hard punches.
As a team, we are concerned with not only the growth of the company, but each other’s personal growth and well being too. Along with our desire to utilize smart technology and innovative engineering strategies to make people’s lives easier (tech nerds, unite!), our team also bonds over our shared love for tea, movies & TV shows. With WFH becoming more normalized, you best believe we have been sharing our favorite ways to prioritize a healthy work-life balance at home (Netflix marathons, anyone?).
