Platform Engineer

Киев, Черкассы, удаленно

SPD-Ukraine is looking for a Platform Engineer to join our team.

As the Platform Engineer in PitchBook’s engineering team, you will work to optimize the utilization of every asset (human or machine) that PitchBook employs to build software. Your target will be to consistently delight PitchBook customers through the reliability, quality, and delivery speed of our products, and to measurably improve the lives of our engineers by automating away all manual processes required from code to delivery.

You will utilize your extensive background in building, deploying, and delivering products end-to-end. You will be both hands-on (identifying delivery technologies, building pipelines, digging deep into our infrastructure and cloud deployments) and broad (leading, mentoring, supporting, strategizing).

Your ability to collaborate with colleagues, level up engineers and development through automation, reliability services, support, and enable efficient usage of our cloud platform across hundreds of engineers globally will be critical to your success. You will solicit feedback, engage others with empathy, and help create a culture of belonging, teamwork, and purpose.

If you love building customer-centric solutions, strive for excellence every day, are adaptable and focused, and believe work should be fun, come join us!
