Available September 5th.
I'm a senior/lead DevOps with 15 years experience tuning & hosting web applications and I'm on the lookout for the next adventure.
I work closely with developers throughout the application lifecycle to build scalable and long-term robust architectures. Load testing, CI, deploy systems, monitoring, config management, security audits, dev projects of my own - you name it I've done it. For larger organisations I've even led whole infrastructure teams.
Recent work includes:
+ AWS/Docker platform to securely host a large public-sector microservice-based web app taking millions of pounds per month in payments.
+ Chef-managed deployment of large microservice stack across varied configurations on cloud and physical servers
+ Large multithreaded Python 3 application for automated cryptocurrency trading. Didn't get rich, still posting on HN.
+ Jenkins + docker-compose platform for efficient builds of microservice-based projects
+ Lots, lots more.
