What does a DevOps engineer do?
I work with Infrastructure on Cloud and DevOps Engineering Tools to make sure that the services and solutions hosted on cloud for QuickBit are highly available, secure and scalable. I help developers make their day to day life easier by providing the solutions and tools so they can develop solutions and services efficiently with shorter release cycles.
Why did you choose to work at QuickBit?
I believe it´s a young, dynamic, creative, fast-paced working place where every working day is a productive day. That’s why I like to work with startups.
What about hobbies? Do you have any?
Yes, quite a few actually. I like photography, watching movies and reading about leadership and latest technologies. I also love gardening, during summertime I grow vegetables in a small piece of land (Swedish Kolonilott).
Tell us something few people know about you.
In 2016, I drove from Legoland, Denmark to Stockholm, Sweden in less than 12 hours with only two breaks for a quick lunch and coffee. I covered a distance of more than 1000 km during these hours.
