About MeAbout

I'm a DevOps Specialist

A hard-working, motivated self-starter, persuasive and motivator leader, with a ‘Can-Do’ attitude.

Always trying to automate anything that requires doing more than three times (yeah! I’m that lazy…).

    Since June... 2016 - current
    Deployment Manager (DevOps) @ Worldpay UK (UK)

    As a Team Leader and a DevOps Manager for a team of several resources, I had the responsibility of guiding the successful go-live of Worldpay’s New Acquiring Platform from an infrastructure delivery as well as application deployment and release perspective.
    Working alongside with Software Configuration and Build Management, Release Management, Development and Operations teams, ensuring that a fully automated CI/CD pipeline is accomplished with minimal to no human intervention, across Test/Dev, Pre-Production and Production environments.

    Jan2016 - Jun2016 2016
    Senior DevOps Engineer @ Dixons Carphone (UK)

    Responsible for systems automated provisioning, security, scalability, hardening and monitoring, making sure that both industry and company standards and requirements were met.
    Working alongside other DevOps Engineers and Developers, had to develop a set of scripts and tools that were able to automate the AWS hosted infrastructure provisioning and delivery for a new E-Commerce Platform project, across Testing, Pre-Production and Production environments.

    May2014 - Dec2015 2014 - 2015
    Deployment Manager (DevOps) @ Worldpay UK (UK)

    As a Team Leader and Deployment Manager (DevOps), I have created an automation suite and orchestration tool to assist myself and the rest of the deployment team in our day-to-day tasks of infrastructure delivery as well as software and application deployment across Test/Dev, Pre-Production and Production environments. The tools have also been integrated with Atlassian Jira for the purpose of fulfilling self-service requests on a 24/7 hands-off basis. The concepts around the orchestration tool proved so easy to pick up that what was first a technical solution for just the application deployment team, has become a more strategic proposition across more teams in different parts of the business and had become an enterprise tool by choice.

    Middleware E-Commerce Specialist @ Salmon Ltd. UK (UK)

    As a Middleware E-Commerce Specialist at Salmon I was part of the new Sainsburys Online Store project, responsible for the delivery of Infrastructure, Middleware and Applications within different phases, for Test/Dev, Pre-Production and Production environments. With the goal of making not only my own but other team members day-to-day smoother and easier, I have developed a set of scripts and tools that allowed fully Middleware and Application delivery with very little human intervention.
