I am an infrastructure SRE at GitLab with backend development background and hands-on experience running large-scale 24x7 systems.


Apprentice Computer Science Expert

Learning to use my preexisting skills in a professional environment as well as adopting new technologies such as node.js into my repertoire. This time ended with the development of a automated test framework based on Selenium as my thesis project.

August 2013 - June 2015

Junior IT Specialist

Deepening my focus on backend technologies after my apprenticeship. Including but not limited to maintaining and handing-over my thesis project.

July 2015 - September 2015

Junior Software Engineer

Working in a integration team, that does whitelabel integration of Bigpoints games and general game server environment maintenance. During my time there I went into the direction of doing Operations as part of my daily business.

October 2015 - January 2017

Junior Full Stack Engineer

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.

Febuary 2017 - March 2018

Operations Engineer

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.

April 2018 - October 2018

Site Reliability Engineer

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.

November 2018 - April 2020

Site Reliability Engineer, Core Infra

The infrastructure's reliability team in GitLab shifted away from unified ownership to specialized teams. Since May of 2020 I am part of the Core Infra team, whose main responsibility is network ingress and egress, as well as infrastructure tooling, CDNs, DNS and secrets management.

May 2020 - present
