TL;DR systems development and developer empowerment

The client delivers video, phone, payment and real-time systems for their clients. I complemented their development team.
Worked directly on all the various subsystems. Complemented their Wowza implementation with custom video based on MPEG, JPEG solutions built with WebSockets using Go and C. Added payment providers. Worked on and improved their metrics collection, including adding Prometheus w/ Grafana backends. Re-designed and implemented their development set-up to have isolated environments for each developer and proper environments for production and staging. Broke up their mono-repository into smaller more manageable repositories with defined requirements.

Duration: 2+ years.
Technology includes Symfony, Go, C, Wowza, Salt, HAProxy, NGINX.

Net Ground, later part of KPN Internedservices

TL;DR secure systems development

The client was delivering managed hosting, mail, domain, VPN and other related solutions to its clients.
I created a new layered platform for managing these resources in a uniform way. From the high-level solution they sold to their clients to the sub-resources they required to operate. The platform was ISO-certified and also scrutinised by their own security standards.

Duration: 2 years.
Technology includes Symfony/Silex, Go, OpenSSL, Ansible.
