You love shipping features, but know that well factored code is what lets you keep shipping features in the long run. Maybe you get antsy writing code without tests, or perhaps you’re a large-scale system operator interested in leveling-up your coding skills.
Either way, you measure your success by the success of your team; you are dedicated to learning about distributed systems, and you are excited to work on open source and be connected to the open source community.
At Pivotal Cloud Foundry we transform how the world deploys and scales software, and we are opinionated about how software should be built. We work hard to deliver platform capabilities so customers can accelerate their time to market for software solutions.

They also work in small teams, and rotate between them frequently so that they are able to meet everyone in the organization.
