DevOps Birth Assistant

I work as a DevOps Birth Assistant with ThoughtWorks, a shepherd for clients and their hardware and software projects, consulting on infrastructural and operational challenges in distributed computing environments, using the power and the values behind the idea of DevOps with the help of focused collaboration, cross-functional teams and pair programming.

I love building things on Linux, especially in clouds, I like reliable infrastructure as code, descriptive provisioning tools and statically typed programming languages. I see it as his destiny to help people achieve serenity through DevOps.

My purpose in life seems to be trying to outsmart computers. I'm really bad at it most of the time.

The Interview

I came to find ThoughtWorks by

Meeting two (now) colleagues at a speaker's dinner. We connected pretty much instantaneously and didn't drop our conversation for a couple of hours.

The best advice I can give a current or future ThoughtWorker is

Be yourself. ThoughtWorks prides itself in supporting people of all shapes and sizes. Diversity as a key focus is what keeps ThoughtWorks and its community alive, creative, curious and disruptive.
