Welcome Vlad, Cloud Engineer

Hi! My name is Vlad, I'm 24 years old and from Kyiv, Ukraine. I am very excited to join Simacan as a Cloud Engineer, to participate and contribute to the automation, development and optimisation of Simacan's cloud infrastructure. I am looking forward to working on the platform in a large, talented team, using cool and cutting-edge technology.

I initially moved to the Netherlands to study, initially, because there were many English-language studies here and the standard of education is very high. But after graduating from Twente University, with a bachelor’s degree in Creative Technology, I  decided to stay because I fell in love with the Netherlands. Since then, I have started my career as a Backend/DevOps engineer in Amersfoort, working in production automation. Now I’ve just started at Simacan to contribute to the platform, as well as broaden my knowledge in everything related to Cloud.

The introduction to Simacan did feel different because of the timing of my start. But still, even through Zoom and Slack, I felt very welcome to join and be part of Simacan. I am grateful to all my new colleagues for helping me with onboarding, because so far it has been smooth and clear. I also quickly got to know many colleagues through frequent meetings!

In my spare time, I like to play the guitar and do sports. When I was a student, I used to compete a lot in sports, but now I just do it for fun and to keep in shape. I am also a big fan of films, especially those from the 80s and 90s, starring action icons such as Arnold and Stallone.
