Life at Cloudibility (VI): Plus 3!

logo_cloudibility_rgb_transparent_square_small

At Cloudibility, we are currently growing enormously – by mindset, by knowledge, and by headcount.

Last week, our team was expanded by three bright minds (in no particular order:

Sandra
Sandra was a Developer once (and a very good one!) and decided to opt for DevOps. She has very strong development skills and is able to transfer this into DevOps-territory. She likes working with CI/CD-components, ELK / EFK and Kubernetes. And from time to time she will be giving presentations and trainings and speeches. She joined our team as Senior DevOps Engineer.

Ronny
Ronny has a profound knowledge in DevOps-technologies as well as Kubernetes. He is doing deep dives with technologies such as Linux, Docker, Ansible, Teraform, Vagrant, Virtualization (VMware, etc.) and many more. He has joined our team as Senior DevOps Engineer.

Emilie
Emilie is part of our sales team. She as an impressive track record of sales even in difficult environments, can handle customers and partners and is a very positive person. She has joined our team as Sales Manager.

Guys, it is so great to have you with us!

Life at Cloudibility (IV): Best. Team. In. The. World.

Cloudibility-Logo-SquareWe have the best team in the world. Period.

I’ve never seen a team being that committed. That focused. That inquisitive. That eager to learn. That funny. That great.

Team, I am so proud of working with you! 

Next week, we will start our expansion. I mean: We will really start it. Three new Team-Members at the beginning of the month. Two more in the middle. One more beginning of August. One more at mid of August. One, two, three perhaps beginning of September.

But: I am not afraid. I know, that we already have a great team and we will continue to be one. We looked carefully at the new colleagues‘ character and found them to match the team in culture and commitment.

Sandra, Ronny, Emily: Welcome!

You will be part of Cloudibility, you will shape us and you will grow with us. And I am very confident to count you in next time when I write about the:

Best. Team. In. The.World.

Life at Cloudibility (II): We need an organizational diagram

Cloudibility-Logo-SquareCloudibility is not even a year of age, but we already need an organizational diagram, since we are already close to 20 persons (17 beginning of September) working with and for us – and this is only the number of employees which have already signed their contracts, not to be spoken of the ones we are currently having conversations with!

We take this very seriously since Michael and I have experiences in enterprise environments as well as a startup history. For us, one very deciding aspect for the success of a company is the organizational structure – if you don’t have it, you are very likely to fail. And having a structure and an internal organization frees the „creatives“ from having to care about everything, ultimately allowing them to focus on their work and the excellence in their doing.

One final note: The importance of a working organization and a working back-office cannot be overemphasized. That’s why I am so happy with our COO Claudia, Linda, the whole team and their invaluable work.

Thank you, team!

Life at Cloudibility (I): Additional vacation days for everyone

Cloudibility-Logo-SquareToday, we decided to grant every employee of Cloudibility up to five additional vacation days in two years. Only condition: The management needs to agree on this and in order to agree, the employee needs to agree to produce some output within these additional vacation days which we (Cloudibility) can use in our marketing or publications.

Such an output could be some photos containing the employee wearing some Cloudibility Shirt and – say – the Colosseum in Rome or some employees running atop the Great Chinese Wall or a Publication. We don’t impose any limits here, as long as we can use it in the end.

So, Cloudibility Employees: Surprise us! Get creative! Go, have some fun!

And, besides: If you want to be a part of Cloudibility, just contact me.

Slides: #CloudNative #Applications – The Big Picture

Below are the slides of my presentation at #ContainerDays 2018 in Hamburg. I spoke about the bigger picture regarding CloudNative Applications – i.e. #DevOps, #Crossfunctional #Collaboration, #IaaS, #SaaS, #PaaS and the change of #Mindset required for utilizing all the advantages of #Cloud environments.

And, BTW: It was a cool event!
