Here you are! Taking care of such a high number of database machines and related services means that we heavily rely on tooling, which is built mainly on Python. However, we don’t write some basic scripts, we build complex operators which can control our infrastructure.

We are eight engineers, each of us focusing on his/her expertise but we understand the work of each other and we can help each other or even do the work if needed. We love challenges. Did you know that the best retrospectives are with beer or wine?
