How’s your coding and writing automation at scale? As in using AWS CloudFormation, Terraform, Vault, CircleCI, shell scripting, containers, Kubernetes? How are you with securing systems, automated patching, security compliance and monitoring, etc? I’m in a hardcore place where my team is managing thousands of hosts performing all of the above as the only ones with hands on keyboard separate from our infrastructure dev teams… and we’re a team of <5.

@Amazon 1 wow great to know. Might need to start exploring down that line…

Where have you tried to apply to?

Why do you want to work for big tech so much? Are you unhappy where you are now? Are you underpaid? It's not all rainbows and unicorns at big tech you know...
