    Zume, Inc

    September 2019 - January 2020
    DevOps Engineer (Software Engineer I) Working at Zume before the Seattle office was laid off, I was able to get hands on experience with the full Devops pipeline of code deployment from a local environment to the production clusters. I created Kubernetes clusters from scratch in Google Cloud Platform (GCP), and installed Helm as well as ingress load balancers. I also wrote my own Helm charts and Dockerfiles, as well as created webhooks to trigger the Docker image build process in Jenkins. This process of installing services to different cluster environments (dev / perf / staging / prod) was automated by Spinnaker pipelines that I also wrote. I carried a security mindset throughout all my work, setting up alert monitoring and handling cluster authorization. place Seattle, WA | Zume, Inc
