Platform Engineer

  • Edinburgh, United Kingdom
  • Full-time

Company Description

Buildit @ Wipro Digital is a global technology consultancy and part of Wipro Digital and the wider Wipro Organisation. As consultants, we are technology agnostic, we advise, we don’t advocate. We love demanding challenges and getting to the root of the problem, whatever it may be. “Digital” can be both ambiguous and all encompassing with aspects of Engineering, Design, and Delivery. Technology centric but much more than just technologists, our agenda is delivering success for our customers.


Doing things differently requires strength of character, empathy for those around you, good judgement, as well as being able to explain why to do something differently in the customer's language and at the right time.  This requires not just being able to do what good looks like but to stand in the middle of something not good and influence the outcome incrementally day to day to make it better.


Our people are at the core of this process. Trust in our people underpins everything we do. Talented, passionate, hard-working, and some of the sharpest people you will ever meet.  The best thing about working here is the people you get to work with while solving hard problems.


Why us?


We challenge the way companies approach problem solving and share a passion for solving difficult ones. We understand that success comes from a combination of changes in technology, ways of working and a customer centric approach. We love technology and understand that real change comes from showing people what is possible rather than telling them. We treat our people like adults and foster an environment where they feel empowered to succeed.

In our Edinburgh studio we are growing a unique offering and fostering a working environment that encourages collaboration, learning and delivering a product suite that both ourselves and our customer can be proud of. BuildIT @ Wipro Digital have been chosen to work in partnership with our customer to help them shape, deliver and innovate their Digital Transformation Strategy over the next three years.
