Yes, it happened, in the past week… I have moved to a new company!
After 2 months of challenges, interviews and so (that’s one of the main reasons that I haven’t published anything), I started in a new place that is completely different from where I’ve been in the past.
Instead of a consultancy, I am working in an end company, meaning, not working for different customers but for the same one, the company itself!
A new environment
This new place is called…Kodify!
Which produces video content and builds, developing and managing a number of high-traffic websites. That means that they not only create media but also manage high-traffic websites where to host this media content!
From a technologies perspective I’ll be using many already known technologies:
- AWS as the main cloud provider with services like Cloudfront, RDS, EC2, etc.
- Kubernetes (self-hosted), Docker, and Helm 3.
- Cloudformation and Terraform from an IaC perspective.
- EFK with Grafana and Thanos for observability.
- MongoDB, MySQL and PostgreSQL.
- GH actions and Jenkins.
- (OS) Linux : Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora, etc.
So you know, technical stuff : )
Why this movement?
It was time for me to move on from NTT, I already felt stuck in the same place with not much movement and a bit limited in terms of growth (I know I moved this year to a new role but it was almost the same).
The opportunity to move to an end company with high-traffic websites, see another different kind of culture was appealing and I took it.
Or sometimes, you just feel it!
I am embracing this new change and I already like the welcome I have received, not only the people but the provided material which exceeded my expectations. In fact, I am now a Mac user (M1 Pro 2021).
Can be scary sometimes to move from a huge place to a smaller one but time will say, for now, I expect to know more about the company itself, how to provide value on it, and help in the growth and maintenance of it!
That’s all, happy holidays to everyone!
