Role Description

The Role:

The platform team is responsible for the core abstractions and infrastructure that powers our product, data, and operations teams. This also includes continuously improving reliability, performance, observability, and efficiency of our platform. We’re looking for people with a strong background or interest in building distributed systems, data-intensive applications, and product and ML infrastructure. You have a growth mindset and are comfortable learning new technologies.


  • Architecting, building, and training other teams on high performance cloud infrastructure.
  • Working closely with supply, growth, and other engineering teams to deliver data-intensive platform solutions.
  • Create abstractions of our core infrastructure that can scale to tens of thousands of users and 100s of millions of square kilometers across time.
  • Building auditable and observable systems that can robustly handle millions of frames and billions of vertices every day.
  • Help foster engineering excellence across backend development.
