I've always been drawn to tools that help teams collaborate. I love the feeling of knowing that I made a team's day-to-day work easier, more enjoyable and gave them more time to spend building great products. In almost all my jobs, I became an admin for our DevOps tools, spent time working with teams to optimize the configuration, and was part of rolling out standards. I sought out a career in the DevOps tooling space so that I could pursue my passion and have a bigger impact.
