Our mission

We believe software should run.

That infrastructure can and should be abstracted way so that developers can move fast without breaking things. Help them focus on features and code quality, not servers and tooling. We believe we know we can do this. To make software just run. On every cloud. On-premise. Everywhere.

Our ethos

First and foremost: be happy.

Being happy means more than just building a great product that makes our clients happy. It’s not just making our stuff robust and automated so no one gets woken up at night. It also means you’re not strapped to your desk. People here have friends, families, and other interests. That’s a good thing.

Who we hire

You. There is no mold. We are a very varied bunch. People from all over the planet from different cultures and venues of life. Some come from top engineering schools. Some are self-taught hackers. Some are in their early twenties, a bunch have passed fifty.

The common thread is a thirst for knowledge, and a willingness to push yourself, experiment, and accept failure (on the path to glorious success, of course.)

How we work

Just do it
We align our vision and agree on a common path, but after that you choose what is important in collaboration with your colleagues. Nobody assigns work. Find clever solutions to hard problems and make a pull request.
Get off the beaten track
Platform.sh will never point the finger at you if you try something that does not work. Trying endlessly is the basis of innovation and of being part of something unique. Try again, and again...
Work from anywhere
Are you a globetrotter or located in a quiet place? Maybe your family schedule needs you to be home. Live the life you want and still get interesting and challenging work that grows your career. Unfailing internet access is your only limit.

Our Values

We aim for the stars; we get there one step at a time.
We want to tackle and solve hard problems, with a sense of urgency and bias toward action. We promote radical change through incremental steps. We are balanced: Thinking small is a self-fulfilling prophecy, betting the house is for cowboys.
We care for each other.
We are good colleagues. We are focused on accessibility, not hierarchy. We jump in to help one another whenever we can. We double down on solidarity when we are under pressure.
We are here to help our customers thrive.
We live and breathe because we make software run, and nothing matters as much as keeping our customers’ applications running. But our goal is bigger. We measure our success on how we improve our customer’s lives, and their digital businesses.
We never sacrifice quality.
We appreciate and value quality in everything we do: code, design and communication. Our product is written with good, sustainable, explicit code and accessible, user-centric design. We automate everything that we can automate, and always design for resilience and high-availability. We know how to refactor, let go, and change when we have to. We stay aware of the world around us.
We are diverse, curious, passionate and courageous.
Our work is not assigned to us, we grab it. Our work goes way beyond what’s immediately expected from us. Structures and roles are there to help guide us, not limit and contain us. We want people who are passionate, open, multicultural, friendly, and smart. We are demanding of ourselves and expect a lot from our colleagues but stay driven by our sense of common purpose and solidarity.
We are fair, and we don’t bullshit.
We are fair to our team members, fair to our clients, fair to our partners, and we care about doing the right thing. We are fair when people join us, as team members, clients or partners, and we are fair when they leave. We owe the truth to our teams, partners and clients. Our marketing and sales only communicate facts (and plausible fairy tales).
