  • Evaluating, and architecting solutions used to build Infrastructure with Terraform or other infrastructure as Code (IaC) Framework.
  • Creating sustainable systems and services through automation and uplifts
  • Implementing best practices for our cloud-based systems including logging, monitoring, deployment & data management
  • Identifying and recommending new solutions for research and participate in proof-of-concept activities to continually optimize our cloud strategy.
