About Platform
Platform Experience at Rackspace Technology has two main areas of product & delivery responsibility
· Customer facing surfaces, such as auth, ticketing, billing and account management experiences
·  A set of innovative enablement services that help other engineering teams get products to market faster
We are the interaction point between customers, and the products and services that Rackspace Technology provides.
How We Work
 Our customer and internal-facing platforms are powered by microservices, including event-driven and HTTP APIs. Our services are fronted with a suite of modern JavaScript applications. We own the full stack of each service from application logic to infrastructure and we are operationally responsible for the services we run. We practice continuous integration and delivery, deploying our services to production hundreds of times a day.
We continuously evaluate new technologies to assess their fit within our solutions, so a strong desire to learn is a must. Experience with the technologies we work with today is a plus but not essential. We are committed to delivering excellence and every team member has to be comfortable taking ownership of the quality of their applications through testing to production.
