Could you share more about your history in IT?

My passion for IT started just after the college period. I had my first learning web development lessons and I saw things change when I modified some variables. But what interested me the most in small lessons about containers after that It became clear that when I saw this that I would like to work in this industry. 

In 2018, I embarked on my professional journey in the IT industry, with a keen interest in cloud-native platforms and automation. I was particularly captivated by RedHat‘s OpenShift and the magical power of Ansible to automate everything. This passion drove me to delve deeper into cloud-native solutions and other automation tools, setting the foundation for my future career.

How did you career at Devoteam look like so far?

I joined Devoteam right after finishing school. Starting as a junior consultant, I had the opportunity to work on various projects across different companies. These experiences broadened my technical expertise and allowed me to apply my knowledge of RedHat products, especially OpenShift, in diverse environments. 

My dedication and continuous learning paid off as I progressed through the ranks. Being firstly a senior consultant and a Team coach to guide and help consultants in their journey at Devoteam. 

Today, I lead a team of more than 25 talented individuals, all specialising in cloud-native platforms with a strong focus on RedHat technologies. Together, we have tackled complex challenges and delivered innovative solutions to our clients, making significant contributions to their digital transformation journeys.

What’s your greatest achievement?

Choosing a single greatest achievement is challenging, given the numerous rewarding projects I’ve been part of. However, the consistent thread throughout my career has been my deep involvement with OpenShift. My passion for this platform has not only helped me grow personally. 

The ability to lead a team dedicated to cloud-native solutions and seeing the tangible impact of our work on clients’ success stories is incredibly fulfilling. Each project, whether with Proximus, MLOZ IT or EU-LISA, has its unique highlights and has contributed significantly to my professional growth.

Any other thoughts you’d like to share?

Reflecting on my journey, I am grateful to Devoteam for the opportunities and experiences that have shaped my career. Starting as a school leaver in 2018 to leading a specialised team in a few short years is a testament to my dedication, the support of my colleagues, and the exciting world of IT consultancy.

I look forward to continuing this journey, embracing new challenges, and contributing to the ever-evolving landscape of cloud-native platforms and automation.

Thanks, Killian!
