Your Team
To prepare for the company’s upcoming acceleration, a new team named “Platform & Services” is created to support our needs for transformation.

Our team culture is all about
- Being absolute experts in each of the Engineering verticals
- Bringing amazing services & infrastructure products to our technical teams
- Sharing our best practices & knowledge
- Acting as a “true companion” for our technical teams when building new product infrastructures
- Feeling responsible for the day-to-day execution of our platform
- Working as a team - we all share the same objective of serving our customers which are, in our case, our colleagues.
