  • Develop internal automation - monitoring, setup, statistics

  • Have the ability to foresee potential problems and prevent them from happening. Apply first-aid reaction to infrastructure failures when necessary

  • Help developers with deployment and integration

  • Make well-reasoned technical choices and take responsibility for it

  • Approach problems with a practical mindset and suppress perfectionism when time is a priority

  • Setup automatic systems to control infrastructure
