Interview Notes: In the past years he’s expanded his role and now he’s a Lead. Working on coordination and flow of the CI/CD pipeline. Design and implementation of new applications, enhancing existing and taking care of the production side with monitoring and automation scripting for deployments and operational items. Working mostly with PowerShell in-house. The application he’s supporting is .NET/C#/Java based so sometimes scripting in those languages or Python… he’s like the bridge between business needs and requirements to development / technology… working with the teams come together to make sure the right solution is in place. Automate everything (deployment, continuous improvement, operational stability)… new services, new buildout from scratch to launch. Wants a collaborative environment with a sense of community where he can learn from others. Would prefer a more automation architecture role. Would love to innovate. Currently working with an automation orchestration tool called IBM Deploy. Transitioning over to Visual Studio Team Services to provide the deployment automation. On the configuration management side, he’s working with Chef but minimally at this point. He can come up to speed quickly. Currently, primarily in a Windows environment with some Linux. Windows Servers, yes, and Active Directory he’s working with daily. He’s not the admin on AD but a heavy consumer of it. SAN for storage currently, has also worked with NAS in prior roles. On the DB side they’re working with relational databases, he used to be the go-to person for anything that was data related, so he can really work with a lot, SQL, Oracle primarily. Some NoSQL training but not too much hands-on. On the cloud side, mostly working with a private cloud based off of Azure, starting to move into the public cloud for both Azure and AWS. Familiar with HyperV. Application monitoring they use AlertSite and SCOM which was a Microsoft monitoring tool, New Relic for availability and performance. He’s also developed his own custom reliability scripts that can go in and pull services and run tests by node and perform actions in event of a failure. Infrastructure as Code, he’s heard of it but they don’t really use that terminology where they are, he is currently not doing much of that but he understands the concept and what needs to be done to get it working, it’s something that he feels is in line with the automation work that he’s currently doing, manning hardware and software, thinks it makes sense, just not something that they are currently doing, it’s not just in line with the application code but it’s to expand/shrink the systems based on demand and the ability to automatically do that for you, everything is so virtual these days that it really is the way to go. Deals with applications that are very heavy, high demand, contains a lot of users, one of the platforms he’s supporting is for e-learning which supports over 200K users, demand ebb, and flows but it was an essential system for them that had to be up 24/7, keep the credentials up to date, it was the core of their business. Crucial to be up and running 24/7, high revenue, reliability, and predictability were very important.
