I have excellent communication skills, written and verbal, acquired over a number of years. I am a competent report writer and I am capable of producing succinct presentations and compelling business cases. I am experienced in difficult vendor negotiations, in both securing discounts for supply and handling post sales disputes. I am aware of the importance of good communications during critical incidents. Apart from driving incidents to a resolution I was responsible for communication between technical departments and business. I have briefed and presented to an audience at the highest level and to large audiences.
Over the last several years I have architected number of different web environments integrating various technologies. The most significant experience I have gained by working for Lastminute.com, where I was involved in architectural design of an environment which consists of over 1600 servers and it is prepared for over 100 applications.
I have extensive experience designing, implementing and supporting web solutions, and managing their integration with a multitude of backend systems including relational databases and legacy systems. My experience spans from systems with hugely complex dependencies (lastminute.com), those with extreme and unpredictable load (IPC Media) and migration projects of entire environments to a new platform (Fish4, Gamesys). I am skilled in the design, implementation and maintenance of highly available systems that will deliver despite hardware or network failures, or under exceptional demand.
Over the last ten years, I have gained an in-depth experience in variety of UNIX/Linux operating systems. While I am competent in several types of UNIX/Linux operating systems, my areas of expertise are Redhat Linux and Solaris 10 including most of the related technologies (RH clustering, GFS1/2, Xen, Lvm, Zfs, zones). In August 2008 I have acquired a RHCE certification level.
I am an expert in network design, implementation and troubleshooting. I have exposure to products from Cisco, Foundry, Citrix and Juniper. I have a very good understanding of TCP/IP and I am familiar with the all components required to build and maintain a secure, scalable Local or Wide Area Network. My experience and knowledge is supported by Cisco Certificates.
