  • Building out processes, tooling, and culture around well-behaved and resilient systems across our product teams
  • Building out an effective, modular, platform leveraging modern infrastructure-as-code and GitOps patterns
  • Ensuring that identity and access management deliver a secure platform without inhibiting innovation
  • Enabling product teams to own and run their own services, backed by solid provision around observability, alerting, and operability
