What is your greatest challenge as a Sr. Principal DevOps Engineer?

This question is not only related to technologies. A challenge is not always building the most resilient infrastructures, I think a great challenge is to know people and build resilient teams.

What do you love the most about what you do at intive?

The people. I had the chance to work with different people from different cultures and when you realize they have the same vision and same goals to success in what they are best, that's priceless. Cooperation and knowledge transfer/sharing is what I think the key to achieve them.

What’s your smartest work-related shortcut or productivity hack?

I can say my productivity hack is to keep my agenda well organized. Find the correct time for necessary meetings (trying to avoid non-necessary ones), focus (90%) in between meetings to solve issues and make progress on ongoing work tasks; and rest the mind, the other 10%.

At what point in your life did you decide to become a Sofware Engineer? Why?

I think this was something completely natural. I got my first computer when I was 4 y/o (it was a Texas Instrument TI-99/4A ❤️), but I think the main factor to become an Engineer was to solve problems, issues and situations with different (and sometimes few) tools. I always considered myself a kind of nerd for that.

Which technologies would you like to learn in the near future?

The future is now, so ML and IA I think are the next steps to learn something "new". About the future's future, we will see what's next.
