IT is all about challenging your skills, learning new things, get your hands dirty implementing them with joy, then, become a master and finally, do it again. An endless quest for global efficiency with only one final goal: Customer Satisfaction.
As the Software Engineering Manager of a multicultural team of 10, my role is to provide enough comfort, visibility, and leadership (by example) to the product owners and individual contributors (DevOps/SREs) so they can fully enjoy accomplishing their mission, in a continuous improvement manner.
As a curious individual, it's mandatory for me to be involved in extra-professional activities such as:
Graduate from Coursera courses
Co-found startups for creating awesome services or search for Business Development activities
Play hard: a lot of sport and diet discipline for a good balance
Parenting :) With no surprise, it brings even more efficiency to my professional activities.
