DevOps engineer, coding tools to make tasks easier for others, with a bit of managing what my team deploys, how we deploy it, updating it and making sure that it’s working as expected. e.g. developed a tool in Python to generate reports with data from various DB’s for our Customers and setup scaling of these Python jobs with Celery workers.

~90% Coding, ~10% Ops.

Summer Intern
Flow
Jul 2019 – Sep 2019 London

Setting up the business’ software using AWS services. They are a new company, aiming to provide sensors to companies along with a free app that anyone could download so that they can see whether a place that is subscribed to Flow is busy, in real time.

I was involved in:

  • Setting up the database to store all of the data
  • Creating the backend API that the app talks to when it wants to retrieve data
  • Setting up authentication on this so that each user can only see and edit what they need to.

The business is still very early in development, so there isn’t much publicly available about this company.
