About the project

How we hire:
At Pentalog, excellence is what you'll do. We're guided by a mission to positively impact the software development world.

Pentalog has an exciting job opening for one of the largest online car dealerships in the UK, who want to revolutionize the car buying process. You'll be working with an existing team as a Platform Engineer focused on observability approaches and tools.

Specifically, you'll be working with the AWS services, serverless and event-driven, as part of the Platform team. The team in charge gives advice and support to other teams who are looking to improve their observability.

They currently use several observability tools, such as Honeycomb, Sentry, CloudWatch, and Datadog. The preferred tool is now Datadog, and the goal is to gradually shift everyone towards it. This role will primarily involve planning and implementing this vision.

Job requirements

  • Previous experience with event driven architectures, limitations, patterns;

  • In-depth knowledge of AWS Lambda: writing, deploying, and monitoring Lambda functions, as well as DynamoDB and S3;
  • Familiarity with best practices for Terraform code structure and module creation;
  • Proficient in developing and debugging applications using TypeScript and Node.js;
  • Hands-on experience with Datadog for performance monitoring, log management, and application performance management (APM);
  • Affinity for solving complex problems and collaborative development;
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills in English.


  • Provide technical support for observability tools (Datadog, Honeycomb, Sentry);
  • Guide teams through migration to Datadog from other tools;
  • Develop and maintain common packages for logging and monitoring;
  • Manage the infrastructure used to send data from AWS to SaaS tools (CloudWatch logs, Kinesis Firehose, etc);
  • Provide expertise on AWS cloud services to product development teams;
  • Participate in production incident response (during working hours).

Extra skills

  • English and French language classes;
  • Competitive salary and bonuses;
  • Free pass to learning platforms;
  • A multicultural, friendly work environment;
  • Working in a company with an Agile mindset: continuous knowledge sharing and validated learning;
  • The possibility to bring your own creative and innovative ideas to life;
  • Mentorship programs that encourage and enable your professional development;
  • Private Health Insurance and meal tickets;
