Darwin Sanoy
Senior Solutions Architect - GitLab
At heart, I am a toolsmith – I thrill at the task of transforming a complex process into a reusable tool. I am a pragmatic innovator who likes to make things that people like to use (Adoption Driven Development). Before I came to GitLab, I worked at a large SaaS company with over 4000 developers and 100 SaaS solutions. As a working team lead, I and my team ran GitLab as a scaled, highly available service. Developers had the option to use the internal service or not, so we had to work hard at making it an attractive option. Automation has been a career long focus and I have specialized in build, deployment and provisioning automation for Windows, Linux and AWS.
