Position: Systems Engineer, R&D
Started at Episerver: Spring 2016
I'm from London, UK and eventually ended up in Sweden because my girlfriend got a job here. I was looking for Azure roles in Sweden since I had been working with Azure earlier. And then I discovered Episerver. I actually had an opportunity with another company. However, I chose Episerver instead based on the technology choices: Azure over traditional infrastructure. The Episerver Digital Experience Cloud Service seemed very interesting.
I work in Web Operations and manage the Azure environment to ensure clients meet their SLA. I also work with automation and act as the escalation point for our Worldwide Managed Services team.
I really like the fact that we use new technology on Azure such as Azure Web apps. Using Microsoft services on a large scale allows us to encounter bugs that even Microsoft hasn’t discovered yet. Helping them resolve those bugs is something I really enjoy. Episerver embraces the new cloud technology. We are also given a lot of freedom to work on projects to fix issues, and there’s plenty of variation in the job.
I’m quite into computer games. I spend far too much time playing! Other things I like do are go to the gym, play “Magic: The Gathering” (the card game), and a lot of board games. I also watch football, which I used to play.
