About Manuel

Over 10 years experience in managing and automating applications and the underlying infrastructure as a part of product and operations teams enable Manuel to quickly grok complex enterprise systems and underlying requirements and constraints. Being directly integrated into development teams allowed him to gain a unique perspective that integrates development workflows with infrastructure constraints and organisational dynamics.

In the last 6 years work slowly shifted from infrastructure and software development to enterprise architecture, consulting on platform engineering and cloud-native technologies, and enabling peers through trainings and consulting in the cloud-native space.

Core technologies of platforms developed and maintained over the years revolve mainly around cloud, Go, Kubernetes and large parts of the CNCF ecosystem, but also include classic linux system administration, datacenter hardware automation, Python, Bash and various configuration management systems.

Excellent communication skills, being able to integrate quickly and smoothly into teams with diverse backgrounds, taking initiative on hard topics and being focused on finding solutions are core competencies of Manuel.

In his free time he likes to get on his motorcycle, plays around with amateur radios (ham radio) as DO2MAZ or dives deep into the latest and greatest of cloud-native technologies and products.
