Build, run and maintain the critical infrastructure that powers our FPS Gateway!
ABOUT THE TEAM
The Platform Bare Metal team are responsible for building the infrastructure serving our on-premise Kubernetes clusters. As part of that, the team is also responsible for operating and maintaining our UK data centres.
Form3 bare metal infrastructure underpins the FPS gateway, which is the largest payment gateway by volume that we operate. As we grow as a company and take on larger customers, the team have a key role to play to ensure our real-time payments platform can continue to scale to meet the demands of our new customers and projects.
The team’s mission is to ensure the seamless operation and maintenance of more than 60 hypervisors, as well as the software / infrastructure as code used to provision hypervisors & virtual machines (VMs). We provide reliable and efficient VM compute services through our expertise in managing hypervisors, running a few hundred VMs across multiple environments today.
We’re proud to be a self-sufficient, distributed team that is empowered to make their own decisions. As part of a larger Platform Engineering organisation, we’re happy to share our wisdom and help each other where we can. We collaborate with neighbouring teams to enable secure & highly available private connectivity to FPS scheme & our customers, and also between our data centres.
