90 percent of tech is tribalism and fashion. Andrew Clay Shafer

Hi there!

I’m Josh. I’m an experienced technical leader in the areas of software development, cloud operations, and platform engineering. I have a proven track record of building and leading high‐performing teams, and have a strong focus on continuous improvement and knowledge sharing. I’m passionate about helping others to learn and grow, and am proud of the work I have done in mentoring and supporting others. With over a decade of experience, I have extensive knowledge of a range of technologies within the infrastructure and software engineering spaces, including:

  • Kubernetes & containers
  • AWS cloud administration
  • Go, TypeScript, Python, and C# programming languages
  • Infrastructure as Code, with extensive Terraform experience
  • Continuous integration & delivery systems (GitHub Actions, CircleCI, ConcourseCI, TeamCity)
  • Agile development methodologies (Scrum, Kanban)

I’m currently a Principal Software Engineer at Dataminr working on developer tooling and deploying & managing Kubernetes at scale. Previously I have worked at Weaveworks on the Weave GitOps Enterprise and Liquid Metal teams, Snyk solving Kubernetes and container security challenges, and Condé Nast building a large scale global Kubernetes platform.

Occasionally I speak at tech events and meetups, you can see my various slide decks on Speaker Deck.

Originally from Perth Australia 🇦🇺, I now live in Cambridge UK 🇬🇧.

I love cycling, photography, and walking my adorable Shiba Inu #doge (see below for pics)! 🐕❤️

My adorable orange Shiba Inu!

Thanks for Visiting!
