What we do
Our platform team is all about creating a fast, consistent and reliable environment for developers to test and deploy their applications quickly and often. We’re using cloud technology to achieve a highly scalable infrastructure, which is pretty important to us – in 2013 we celebrated 5,000 concurrent users, but as of 2016, our peak is almost 16,000 – an increase of about 137 a day!
By automating server configuration management and software build/deployment processes, we aim to deliver immutable infrastructure and ensure fault tolerant systems that can handle over 90TB of internet traffic every 30 days. We’re adding an average of 500 new clients a day, with over 140TB of storage (that’s equal to about 350 million songs), adding 2.5TB a week. We get to play around with Windows Servers, Linux, SQL, Active Directory, IIS, Akamai, load balancers, firewalls and network security, and SANs. You will also use Chef, Puppet, Teamcity, and Splunk, to name a few. At last count we had around 708 servers in testing, fail over and production.
