About Me

I am what we now call a Site Reliability Engineer with over 20 years of industry experience, ranging from small single system environments to large scale systems involving thousands of servers.

I have extensive development experience, mostly in an operational automation context, as well as systems administration and maintenance. I've been on-call for most of my career and have experience managing incidents and drafting blameless post-mortem analyses.

I have lots of experience in architecture and design, including gathering stakeholder requirements, drafting requirements documents, and carrying them through implementation and production deployment.

In any job, I am looking for the usual challenging work and good diverse people to work with. I need remote-only work with a highly communicative team that is willing to use text chat and video conferencing.

I am not interested in management roles.
