What I'm looking for
I am an engineering lead active in software development, web architecture, and infrastructure automation. I enjoy helping teams realize the value of their work by improving the reliability and speed of software delivery. I have a strong background in DevOps practices and have been actively developing my software leadership skills over the last six years.
Nov 2021 - Present (1 year 10 months)
I increased observability across applications by integrating Datadog for log, metric, and trace aggregation. I also helped establish a process to prioritize and address technical debt alongside existing work streams. Finally, I forged relationships with external teams (e.g., Cybersecurity, Data Analytics, upstream and downstream consumers) to better negotiate cross-team dependencies.
Senior Site Reliability Engineer
Opentrons Labworks, Inc.
Apr 2021 - Oct 2021 (6 months)
I helped scale cloud-based lab operations software from a single instance, to multiple instances, each supporting distinct geographic locations. I also developed tooling to repeatably apply database schema changes across all lab software instances. Finally, I built Amazon Lambda-based processes to automate the aggregation of application data into a centralized data lake.
Vice President of Engineering
Jan 2017 - Jan 2021 (4 years)
I instituted an organization-wide system for making architecturally significant decisions. I also iteratively improved the engineering hiring process by introducing an apprenticeship program, standardized application assessment, and on-site interview loop. Finally, I instituted an engineering growth ladder to improve clarity in our growing engineering organization.
Senior DevOps Engineer
Jul 2014 - Jan 2017 (2 years 6 months)
I founded the organization’s first web application infrastructure team. I also assembled software delivery pipelines with reproducible development environments, immutable deployment artifacts, and infrastructure as code (IaC). Finally, I defined an incident response procedure to catalog production issues blamelessly.
Jan 2013 - Jul 2014 (1 year 6 months)
I participated in technical pre-sales engagements with companies across the country. I also maintained the official Chef cookbooks for Riak and Riak CS. Finally, built tooling around Docker, Datomic, Omnibus, and Vagrant for the Riak ecosystem.
