Software DevOps

Nathan
Software DevOps Developer

Nathan sees himself as a Software Build Engineer but recently his role has been taking on a web operations focus too. With IT embracing Software DevOps, Nathan is striving to make his experience relevant and is working to streamline interactions between development and operations. He sees that his development team is constantly asking the operations team for access to environments to work on which can take days. Due to this delay, many of his team spin up their own environments in cloud to try and be more efficient with their time.

Searching for ways to better manage this process, Nathan is keen to change the way his team manage infrastructure both in the public and private clouds.
