Amos Kyler


As a DevOps engineer I strive to develop time-saving CI/CD systems and infrastructure as code platforms that people love with cutting edge containerization technology. The future of DevOps & production environments is in platform agnostic containerization and the industry is just getting started!

My aim is to empower engineering teams with the tooling they need to understand their stack from top to bottom, development through production. I am passionate about automation, process, people, AND uptime!
