Freelance, 201 Created (April 2009–February 2018)

I did 16 months of ops work at the Money Advice Service, including improving their monitoring, replacing their CI system with Jenkins, updating old puppet code, and preparing their infrastructure to make use of docker and kubernetes.

Previous work includes helping dstl (a part of the Ministry of Defence) develop a django application for collaborating on finding and using links to tools (internal and external); helping relaunch Pando (a web publication covering technology, Silicon Valley, startups) onto django from Wordpress; and working at Linden Lab on refactoring to use microservices, and helping implement their international billing system.
