How do world-class software engineering teams deliver every day, at scale? Meet the unsung heroes of your engineering organization: platform teams. This discipline is still emerging, but great platform teams share a focus on powering developer productivity, building paved roads for team success, and automating solutions. Platform teams empower developers to focus on what matters, and create massive leverage for R+D team success.

At CircleCI, we work with platform team leaders everyday and we know how significant their work is to the success of scaling engineering organizations. We want to honor that work.

The list below includes ‌engineering trailblazers making a big impact in the platform space right now. Please join us in celebrating them today.
