Our Engineering team handles billions of transactions each day in an extremely latency-sensitive environment. The tools and use-cases are diverse, and our challenge is to increase the development velocity by optimizing various parts of the delivery pipeline, while emphasizing reliability, uptime, capacity, and performance.
