Cloud Architect

Crayon AS APRIL 2020 - Present

Primarily focusing on cloud infrastructure and automation, mostly towards Microsoft Azure. DevOps and cloud native technology have been the priority from this point on.

At clients, I have had roles like cloud engineer, DevOps consultant, cloud consultant, and architect. Been designing and implementing Infrastructure-as-Code (Terraform), CI/CD pipelines (Azure DevOps, Github Actions), Kubernetes deployments, and other cloud-native technologies. I have been a trusted advisor to companies from all over the world, helping customers getting started with Cloud Adoption Framework and automation.

At the company I have been working on creating a global codebase, which include Terraform and PowerShell modules. I have done a lot of internal speaking about new technology and operational models.
