Dec 2017 - Feb 2021

Lead WebOps Engineer, Kainos

As a Lead WebOps Engineer as was responsible for delivering Kubernetes-on-AWS platform for big project for one of our customers (Department for London, UK GOV department).

I was involved in designing and deploying infrastructure, IaaC pipelines and security boundaries around AWS and Kubernetes areas. I was leading team of few WebOps Engineers, for which I have planned work. As a team we were also supporting two developer teams within their daily work - this included container deployments, pipelines, solving problems with application. Project went live after 3 years of development.

Later on I have joined another project (HM Revenue & Customs, UK GOV department), where I was involved into building kubernetes platform on AWS MVP for application to handle new tax system which went live after Brexit has happened. I was responsible for supervising kubernetes layer and planned further work to improve platform security.

Infrastructure Engineer / WebOps Engineer, Kainos

Similar to previous job, started on junior position and later on moved to delivery. My responsibilities were changing between projects, from simple MS Sharepoint / AD support to designing and developing infrastructure and various development processes (incl.
