Find your next role today.

A Platform Engineer plays a crucial role in organisations, focusing on the design and maintenance of the foundational technology platforms that are the foundation of software applications. Their responsibilities involve creating and managing the infrastructure, whether it involves hardware, virtualisation, or cloud resources, with an emphasis on ensuring scalability, reliability, and efficiency. Through the development and implementation of automation scripts, Platform Engineers streamline processes like deployment, scaling, and monitoring. They play a vital role in establishing and maintaining Continuous Integration/Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) pipelines, facilitating the automated and efficient delivery of software from development to production.

Another key aspect of a Platform Engineer's role involves working with cutting-edge technologies such as containerisation (e.g., Docker) and orchestration tools (e.g., Kubernetes). By using these tools, Platform Engineer's enhance the implementation, scalability, and management of applications within the organisation. Through collaborating with development and operations teams, Platform Engineers bridge the gap between these different departments, ensuring seamless coordination for deploying and operating applications. Additionally, they contribute to the establishment and maintenance of robust security practices, safeguarding data and system integrity within the platform.

A Platform Engineer also monitors and optimises system performance. Platform Engineers implement solutions to track the health of applications and infrastructure. This includes addressing issues promptly and optimising systems for efficiency and reliability. Through thorough documentation and training initiatives, Platform Engineer’s ensure that their expertise is shared across the organisation, giving other team members the knowledge of best practices. Ultimately, Platform Engineers play a crucial role in developing teams to focus on creating innovative software by providing a stable, scalable, and automated platform for their applications.
