Linux System Administrator - Cloud and Automation oriented


I'm a multi-skilled system administrator, with a strong background on automation (with puppet, chef and my home made bash and python scripts).

Full stack profile, from the infrastructure (SAN, Hypervisors, datacenter management) to the app level (python, php) with a lot of experience of building and managing high traffic application middleware (web servers, caching, load balancers...) 

I'm a new technology fan and a technical challenge oriented person, I've got a strong experience in technical support and IT problem analysis and resolution.
