Delivery Platform Team @Heetch

The Delivery Platform team’s mission is to provide a fast, reliable and scalable continuous delivery platform to support the growth of all Heetch engineering teams.

Our platform and tools are used by developers every day and, empower them by reducing the time to market of a feature, from the time we have an idea, to the time a feature is available to all our passengers and drivers.

The platform is written in Golang, built with Drone.io and powers hundreds of Go/Elixir microservices on top of Docker.

Our Values

• Move smart: We measure everything, and employ tools and standards to ship code quickly and safely (continuous integration, code review, automated testing).

• Distribute knowledge: We want to scale our team to a point where our contributions do not stop at the company code base. We believe in the Open Source culture and communication with the outside world.

• Unity makes strength: Moving people from A to B is not as easy as it sounds but, we always keep calm and support each other.

• Always improve: we value personal progress and want you to look back proudly on what you’ve done.

• Ship small but often: We consistently deliver value to developers to avoid building up frustration caused by long development cycle

• Automate all the things: We think that most maintenance and manual actions can be automated to reduce friction, mistakes and offers a better scaling of the delivery pipeline.

• Strong ownership: Our team has a broad scope of responsibilities and internal customers whom we want to serve to the best of our ability.
