The mission for this role

Attest’s platform squad exists to empower other engineers to deliver value with high efficiency, security and reliability, by empowering them with platforms, tooling and infrastructure.

We take a two-pronged approach: running, maintaining, and supporting platforms and tools that are used on a daily basis by other engineers, whilst simultaneously identifying and implementing improvements to Developer Experience more broadly.

As a Platform Engineer, you share responsibility for the stability, scalability, security and efficiency of Attest’s platform infrastructure. You work in collaboration with both platform team members and other people from across the organisation to scope out, prioritise and deliver technical enhancements to the Attest platform, ensuring that the wider Attest engineering team can work efficiently.

Your focus will be...

  • Growing and maturing our existing data analytics platform and data product offerings.
  • Maintaining our data analytics infrastructure and data architectures to enable data-driven decision making across Attest.
  • Building tooling to support and optimise the ML model development lifecycle, including experimentation, logging, deployment, and monitoring capabilities.
  • Architecting infrastructure to effectively manage data assets, models, and codebase.
  • Designing and implementing ETL pipelines to ingest and process data from various sources.
  • Proactively recommending strategies and implementations to improve data reliability, efficiency, and quality standards

We’d love to hear from you if…

  • You think ahead and bring ideas to the table, identifying data engineering opportunities and presenting well-thought-out solutions.
  • You have hands-on experience in Data Engineering using modern languages like Python and have experience with relational SQL and NoSQL databases.
  • You have architected, maintained, and owned infrastructure for data processing and reporting.
  • You understand the ML model development lifecycle and have experience with MLOps tools and methodologies to streamline and optimise those processes.
  • You have strong data pipelining knowledge and experience working with data engineering tools ( i.e. MLFlow, Kubernetes, dbt, Terraform, Redshift)


The salary range for this role is £85,000 to £105,000.

At Attest our engineering roles are levelled. For this particular role we are open to hiring candidates across 2 different levels which is why the range is so broad. If you expectations align at either end of the band (or somewhere in between!) please do apply and we can share more about our internal levelling during the interview process.

In-person and remote working balance ...

We are a collaborative bunch and know the value of solving problems together. We’ve adopted a hybrid working approach, where employees split their time between the office and their home / alternative place of work. Typically Attesters are in the office 2 days per week with the days and times in the office being agreed with the employee and the line manager based on the employee's preferences, workload and calendar which may vary week to week. Some Attesters come in more than twice a week and some come in less, it is about working autonomously to be at your best!

Across Engineering Tuesdays and Thursdays are the most popular days in the office so if an Engineer is working in the office, they will probably come in on those days rather than other days of the week so they can collaborate with their peers. However, we’re mindful that flexible working arrangements can make a big difference for a variety of reasons and encourage Attesters to let us know the best balance for them.

Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

The world’s best companies mirror the world around them. We are building an Attest that brings together, and actively celebrates, diversity in race, age, physical and mental ability, sexuality, gender identity and perspectives. Every Attester should feel they belong as their complete selves. We make an active choice to acknowledge and remove systematic inequality from our people and talent processes. We don't claim to have this all figured out yet, but it’s a journey we are fully accountable to.

With this in mind, data shows that individuals from minority groups typically only apply if they meet every criteria listed. Based upon this insight, we wanted to take this opportunity to encourage individuals who meet some, but not all criteria to still apply as you may be the right person for the role!

We want you to bring the best of you to the hiring process. Please contact us at talent@askattest.com if you’d like to discuss any adjustments to our process which might help you demonstrate your strengths and capabilities.
