Angestellt, Senior DevOps Engineer, Kubevisor
Cape Town, South Africa
I am a Cape Town-based Senior DevOps Engineer where I specialise in containerising clients’ monolithic applications with Kubernetes and Helm, converting them to microservices architecture using the GitOps model on the AWS platform. My role also includes proof of concept; assessing and advising on application design and database architecture; diagramming new proposed architectures; cloud migration; and using Terraform to deploy cloud services. Upon successful migration, I train client application teams. I am passionate about future developments in GitOps and believe the next shift will be towards event-driven architectures using tools such as Keptn. At Ortelius, the open-source microservices project I contribute to, we built a platform-agnostic event-driven architecture and I diagrammed this complex process. Ortelius has given me the opportunity to both collaborate with pioneers in this field and serve the next generation through mentoring.
