The Opportunity

Platform at Peloton is a force-multiplier that enables Peloton to move faster and scale safely, with minimal effort. Core to this mission is creation of the best developer experience in the tech industry--for the entire spectrum of Peloton's technology: IoT, firmware, web, apps, backend, messaging, content, data, and machine learning.

This not only includes developer tooling, CI/CD/gitops, discovery and documentation-as-code, and tech learning; it also includes custodianship of our frameworks for development across our entire tech stack. Imagine a world where discovery of services and up-to-date documentation is instantaneous as Google Search; where rate-limiting, observability, tracing, cost tagging and more are "batteries included". Where infrastructure is declared and deployment is not only push-button, but includes automated canary analysis, auto-sizing, and auto-scaling. Imagine the enjoyment of building this in partnership with others in the open source community (including the CNCF) as well as with engineering stakeholders across all of Peloton.
