Timeline

Professional experience for Hendrik Meyer

  • Current 2 years and 9 months, since Nov 2018

    Site Reliability Engineer

    GitLab Inc.

    An option to work for GitLab showed up and I did not think about it twice. Keeping the lights of GitLab.com on is a huge responsibility, but very rewarding, too! I do my daily work by utilizing Terraform, Chef, etc. and of course GitLab itself. Later the infrastructure's reliability team in GitLab shifted towards specialized teams. Since May of 2020 I am part of the Core Infra team, whose main responsibility is network in-/egress, as well as infra tooling, CDNs, DNS, and secrets management

  • 7 months, Apr 2018 - Oct 2018

    Operations Engineer

    PARSHIP ELITE Group

    Combing everything I have learned in the previous 4.5 years, it was time for me to enter uncertain territories. PARSHIP ELITE Group presents me with a much smaller scale operation, forcing me to rethink some of my approaches, yet being able to provide insight to enable growth and scalability in operations.

  • 1 year and 2 months, Feb 2017 - Mar 2018

    Junior Full Stack Engineer

    Bigpoint GmbH

    These operations tasks have formed into a role that combines my passion for software development with the challenges of operations. Although the title has 'full stack' in the name it is not quite the 'full stack' you might expect, as the focus is shifted towards the low-level, e.g. consists of operations/DevOps (incl. on-call) and backend development instead of front- and backend development.
