I’m a software engineer based in London, but originally from the Netherlands.
In the last couple of years I have mostly focused on version control, software
distribution and networking (L3 and up).
As of April 2021, I work as a Site Reliability Engineer at Cognite.
Between February 2013 and March 2021, I worked as a Site Reliability Engineer

other kinds of frontend infrastructure.
Between 2009 and 2012 I worked at Canonical Ltd., on Launchpad, Ubuntu, Bazaar and various cloud-related projects.
