Devops Consulting

I’m available to:

  • Reduce the costs of your CI infrastructure so that you can free up your infrastructure budget.

  • Help you migrate from Jenkins to a more modern CI platform, like GitHub Actions, to reduce operational overhead and iterate faster.

  • Help your team evaluate emerging technologies and processes. CircleCI or GitHub Actions? Kubernetes or Nomad? GitOps or ChatOps? How do you know what’s likely going to be a fad and what’s not? I can help your team avoid costly mistakes when adopting new tools and processes.

  • Scale your DevOps processes. Should your company adopt full-stack teams that own the entire delivery pipeline, or should a specialized team of internal experts own the pipelines? These are the questions I can help you answer so that you can decide on the right trade-offs that make sense for your company as it scales to avoid future expensive migrations.

  • Do implementation work. Maybe you’re a small team that doesn’t have enough DevOps resources. I can augment your team, dive in, and start delivering fast. I’m well-versed in terraform, Kubernetes, docker, etc. I can help you build repeatable pipelines, documentation and provide a smooth hand-off to your internal team.

  • Need something else? Please don’t hesitate to reach out.

In the past, I’ve:

  • Saved a company $500k a year in CI infrastructure costs.

  • Worked with several hundred engineer organizations to migrate from Jenkins to GitHub Actions.

  • Introduced configuration as code and GitOps best practices to teams.

  • Built dynamic review environments triggered on a pull request.
