Welcome! Remote work is awesome, I love it and I want to be approachable. So this README happens so you can get to know me a bit.
This is not a substitue for chit chat, in fact I encourage you to contact me not only for work-related questions, but just to talk.
What´s my position?
I work as a Senior Site Reliability Engineer in the Cloud Operations department. I monitor, search ways to improve platform stability and reliability, automate to eliminate toil and help with change and incident management.
When I´m online?
My regular working hours cover a 9 hour shift where I am reachable.

How to contact me
You can find me in Slack and at my corporate email, I attend those daily. Outside of work you can also find me in LinkedIn, lets connect!
You can (and should) page me
If its urgent and I´m not responding to instant messaging please page me. Its the only way to reliabily contact me if I´m on deep work or in a meeting. Just please do not page me outside my working hours, as if I´m not on call I am not supposed to attend to it.
My work style
I like planning, I organize my time publicly so others can see what I am hoping to work on. I have a bias towards async work, so I´ll always prefer a collaborative document over a syncronous meeting. But I understand that meetings are useful and need to happen. I will happily join if I can, and if I must I´ll ask you to schedule it.
I embrace deep work, that means focusing for as long as possible on a task until its completed. For that I cannot be paying attention to instant messaging and petitions, as the burden of contex switching usually makes me terribly inneficient.
What I assume about others
I will always assume positive intent. I will assume that I can question your ideas and suggestions if they fail to convince me, and I´d like for you to do the same. If I ask for something and you cannot do it, or do not feel comfortable doing it, please just openly say no. I will do the same.
