Back in September last year I flew over to the US for PuppetConf 2011, and more recently took a trip to Edinburgh for PuppetCamp. Both times when I returned my wife asked me how it went, and both times my answer was simple; “I’ve gotta work for these guys!” I said. So after recently returning from a short excursion to Portland, Oregon I am very thrilled and honoured to announce that I’ve accepted a full time position with Puppet Labs.
I’ve been an IT contractor for many years now, and started working with Puppet in 2008. Since then I’ve worked more and more with Puppet at numerous companies including most recently at the BBC. I’ve also become increasingly more involved in the Puppet user community at large over the past 4 years. I have a real passion for working with the product, I love the Puppet community and now I’m really looking forward to joining the company that made it all happen and being a part of all the awesome things to come.
I’ll be joining Puppet Labs later this month as a Professional Services Engineer and look forward to maintaining and building upon the many relationships I have with various Puppet users as well as engaging with a wider section of the user community in my new professional capacity too. I would like to thank the various people at Puppet Labs involved in my interviews for the opportunity, with special thanks extended to Aimee Fahey (@PuppetRecruiter) for all her assistance during the hiring process.
