CV of James Hebden



Summary


I enjoy working remotely, and am a huge proponent of flexible work options. I'm interested in how technology enables us all to live better lives. I work well in teams, and I value being friendly, polite, patient, and I enjoy sharing knowledge and skills.

My skillset and interests are around web/cloud infrastructure - especially virtualisation, configuration management/automation, and embedded technology (e.g. IoT). I specialise in, and really enjoy working with - Linux, BSD, Open Source (Libre) Software, Security, Monitoring & Automation, Virtualisation, Networking & Web Development, and embedded system development and integration.



I enjoy working in DevOps & Generalist teams, where everyone can get their hands dirty, with emerging technologies and platforms, and finding new and smarter ways to get things done through automation, monitoring/metrics and open communication.

In my spare time, I enjoy hacking, coding, brewing, baking, electronics, woodworking, blacksmithing, gardening, hiking, swimming and surfing (badly).
