About Me

Greetings, I am Diego, a skilled DevOps and Full-Stack Engineer with expertise in helping businesses ranging from startups to corporates to deploy their ideas into production. My proficiency lies in utilizing advanced technologies such as Kubernetes, AWS services and GitOps to optimize the development, delivery, and deployment processes.

My professional journey began as a back-end developer in the financial industry, where I gained knowledge of agile methodologies and software quality standards. I have since honed my skills, incorporating principles of the lean startup method into my work across diverse projects.

My unwavering commitment to collaboration and sharing knowledge make me an approachable team player. I am always eager to connect with individuals and businesses to explore ideas and discuss opportunities for collaboration.
