About our Application & Platform Infrastructure Team:
Enova’s Application & Platform Infrastructure team is responsible for building and managing shared infrastructure and platforms used to run internal applications. These platforms are built in a manner that enables teams to provision and run applications without depending on our team. The bulk of this provisioning leverages Terraform as that interface to provision services as containers, lambdas, or VMs. Custom tooling is leveraged to smooth out any gaps for managing these services after provisioning. We typically leverage Go, Ruby, or Bash for our tooling, but believe in the right tool for the right job. The domain of our team resides between the application layer and the virtualization layer. As a result, we are only responsible and on-call for the provisioning interface, tooling and the underlying Kubernetes infrastructure.
We balance internal customer feedback and our team’s vision when setting the roadmap and features for these platforms. Our daily work is driven by an agile process owned by our team and improved as needed. We leverage GitHub at the core of this workflow via Issues, Pull Requests, and Project boards. Our work is usually large project based but we try to segment the work into smaller tasks that multiple team members can work on. We leverage slack, video chat, or screen sharing when swarming and pairing on work or incidents. Along with code reviews, this helps ensure that knowledge gets distributed across our team.
