Intro

Hello, my name is Sander. I’m passionate about technology, eager to create and learn, diligent and always looking to get the job done.

Love to deepen my experience with container orchestration such as kubernetes or do data engineering. Like it when my work incorporates infrastructure, data science, security and writing code.

Availability

Willing to relocate for a project outside of the Netherlands. Anything from DevOps (CI/CD, containers, k8s etc.) to data engineering (python, ELK etc.).

Vision

Paradigms that make me tick are;

  • Don’t create technology but solutions
  • Clear separation of state[less|ful], e.g. through (docker) containers
  • Diagrams or documentation, begin with the end in mind
  • Infrastructure as Code (IaC)
  • Security by design
  • Data driven decisioning

Security

Your company’s IT security is important to me, security is not optional.

Ever company has a different history/legacy and attack surface, but the most import aspect is the company culture. Employees should be thanked if they report an incident, punishment leads to deleting logs/evidence and fear or reporting.

Security is not achieved through special measures alone, but by creating awareness. For me this results in creating tools such as a password generator, a docker based firewall (not using iptables on host) and 2FA backup tool, not for the sole purpose of using it, but to create awareness and show alternative possibilities to existing challenges.
