Site Reliability Engineer

2017 - 2019

  • Worked as a member of a very new growing team in the company, the Site Reliability Engineering Team. This is a cross-area team that helps developers and infrastructure teams to automate operations.
  • Faced, as a team, different types of problems and helped to fix them including the automation of processes, the automation of infrastructure provisioning, automation of deployments, redesigns of APIs, analyses of performance, and so on.
  • Led a project to redesign and automate the Amazon Machine Images (AMIs) creation and deployment process for the company's "red zone", which is the group of VMs/containers running on a special Amazon VPC handling the processing of credit card information.

Platform Architect

2014 - 2017
BBVA Francés S.A.
  • Worked in a team that designed, installed, configured, and maintained the infrastructure of BBVA's subsidiaries, especially crucial to keep them running during business hours.
  • Investigated a great deal about new technologies and how to incorporate them into our current business processes.
  • Designed and implemented a process to remotely migrate all the NAS devices of the subsidiaries from Ubuntu 8.04 to Ubuntu 14.04. This project included the creation of a very little initrd (initial ramdisk) file that allows me to connect via SSH and then automates the migration process.
  • Researched and analyzed how to incorporate Linux containers, specifically Docker containers, into production to solve problems with different versions of application libraries.
  • Worked on the creation of new methodologies to generate images of the operating system with Ansible as provisioning tools.
  • Developed a RESTful web service in Java that allows a web application to interact with an NCR printer. The web application makes calls to my RESTful API every time I need to print a ticket for the clients that enter the subsidiary. This development allowed BBVA to reduce the money spent licenses by a large amount.
  • Researched and tested pilots of CoreOS, Kubernetes, Etcd, Flannel, and more.
