Expires at: 2020-03-04

Platform Services is the technology division within Adevinta, with offices in many cities around the world, including in Barcelona and Paris. One of the missions of Platform Services is to develop the global product platforms and technology infrastructure necessary to create developer pipelines, big data processing, media management, payment, security and identity systems. With over 250 million monthly active users under our belt, we are able to harness huge amounts data to provide insights on a global scale.

At Platform Services we face a massive scale in highly critical production environments on a daily basis, a huge amount and diversity of users, large systems, lots of great teams and employees, etc. This massive scale comes with unique challenges both from technical and operational perspectives. If you want exposure to large scale environments as well as exposure to best of breed technologies (AWS, Mesos, Spinnaker, Docker, ?) this role is for you.

We are currently looking for an experienced software engineer to join our small team of engineers in Barcelona. As a member of our team you will be part of developing and implementing systems using the best development practices and tools at scale for Adevinta sites around the world, for a variety of purposes, such as content delivery close to users, network abstraction or distributed caching systems implementation.

Our systems are global scale deployments of different services such as developer productivity tools, image and message processing systems, big data and map-reduce clusters, database and NoSQL Back-ends and many more. At all times you will be just a git clone away from real code to contribute to. We specifically have to support hundreds of services and hundreds of instances for 200M+ external users, using dynamic service discovery systems, leveraging dynamic load balancing and routing. Service to service interaction is done using circuit breaker frameworks and techniques. Near 100% uptime is done using deployment techniques such as blue/green or canary releasing. For internal services (like delivery pipelines and build systems), we support more than a thousand developers.
