A day in the life of a Data Platform Engineer
As a Data Platform Engineer you are a very crucial part of the team. Without your work, the platform is stagnant. You build components of the platform that enables the users to build scalable pipelines, deploy models in production, perform data discovery and metadata management. You are the one that is always finding new and innovative ways to improve storage performance, resource management for data processing frameworks. CEO’s rely on you to ensure that the entire organization has a secure and scalable data platform at their disposal. Other products are praising you for all the time you save that would have been required to build and maintain a secure infrastructure to host and process data.

When you arrive at work and finish your morning coffee, you sit with your team to understand what new features make the lives of the platform users easier. You brainstorm ideas on how to create airflow as a service so several product teams can orchestrate their workflows in a standardized way.
You talk to other business users about what kind of additional features would help them in the secure development environment provided within the platform.After a lunch break with colleagues you think of a new way to improve resource provisioning for the applications running in kubernetes. As a platform engineer at WBAA, you will never get bored with many experienced and skilled engineers around you, the freedom to innovate and to not only use open source tooling, but also contribute and teach about them.
