Engineering and DevOps

← Back to About us

We are a community of practitioners excited by the possibilities of great technology

We are motivated by delivering solutions that add value, achieve outcomes and delight. We work within multi-disciplinary teams formed of digital strategists, designers, researchers and delivery managers.

From mission-critical platform engineering to global website builds, from enterprise API delivery to secure mobile applications, we have deep full-stack development expertise across multiple technologies. We have specialists in Architecture, Quality Assurance and DevOps – as well as colleagues with deep expertise in Cloud, Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things and Technology Innovation.

We work with the most innovative technologies and hold partnerships with the world’s most recognised technology companies, including Amazon, Google, Microsoft and Salesforce.

Our core engineering capabilities include these listed below.

Agile application and product development

We architect, build, scale and maintain business-critical software for our clients – including CMS, CRM, eCommerce and automation – often with complex integrations into regulated back-office systems. Our core stacks are Java, .NET and JavaScript/Node, but we pick the right tool the job.

Cloud-native modernisation

We plan, architect and migrate applications, services and data to the cloud, using infrastructure-as-code and platform-as-a-service as core principles. We maintain partnerships with AWS, Google Cloud and Microsoft Azure.

Native and hybrid mobile apps

We build native mobile and hybrid apps using widely adopted technologies such as React Native and Flutter. We provide full support for mobile development pipelines and release to the major app stores and marketplaces.

Quality Assurance and release management

Test strategy, test execution and specification by example activities are married with manual and automation testing throughout development – ensuring code quality and extremely reliable delivery.

DevSecOps as a culture and a practice

We’re experts in performance and security, infrastructure-as-code, continuous deployment, and automation, ensuring the right code is deployed at the right time, to the right environments, in the right way. We use tools such as Terraform, Docker, Kubernetes, Jenkins, Octopus and many more. We ensure the services that we implement not only work now, but can grow and evolve – equipping our clients with the operational capability needed for the future.

Training

We’re always looking at emerging technologies (e.g. serverless, GraphQL) and processes (e.g.GitOps, DesignOps) and assessing how we can use them for ourselves and our clients. We’re committed to our engineers’ development, providing world-class training and an ongoing commitment to continuous learning, communities of practice and personal growth. We are coached and mentored by leading experts within PA and have access to subject matter expertise across all industries.

We have also built deep alliances with market-leading technology providers – giving us valuable insights into the best products so that we can tailor the ideal solutions for our clients’ needs. Our engineers all have the opportunity to train for and get certified with our partners.
