We are a digital transformation agency that works with a range of startups and global brands to strategize, design, develop, and grow uniquely innovative products that provide long-term value for end users and our clients. Instead of just churning out whatever we’re asked to build, we strive to truly understand and solve our clients’ problems, ultimately building the right product the right way.
We’re selective with our clients: their values must align with ours, their concepts must excite us, and their demands must require new learnings & challenges.
At our core, we define success as running an organization that makes meaningful contributions to the clients, users, and communities that we serve, and that nurtures healthy and balanced lives for its team members.

As a Platforms Engineer, you’ll work in a cross-functional and collaborative environment with highly skilled and passionate team members across the globe.

You have a drive to continuously expand your personal and professional growth, both under the guidance and direction of your supervisor and under the continued mentorship of the lead and principal engineers you work with on projects. You will also help advance the continued growth of your team by guiding best practices and evaluating available frameworks and toolchains that help establish the technical direction for the development practices.
