About
I have spent most of the last decade working my way from the humble roots of support technician to experienced engineer, responsible for several aspects of the running of the IT operations of nationally recognized companies. I am also familiar with DevOps technologies and learning web development/software engineering in my free time.

Infrastructure Engineer

Accor UK all.accor.com

Dec 2013 to Oct 2016London

I started initially with Accor UK as an IT project coordinator, working in a less-technical role. At that stage, my duties were mainly around small to medium scale projects (refreshing hardware in hotels, network changes, or IT-management of a whole hotel opening). At the end of 2014, I have joined to the Infrastructure team, in a more technical role. In this capacity, I was mainly responsible for the IT administration of the users and assets. (Across 300+ hotels, with a user base of near 4000) I have also provided input and carried out work within various IT projects. I have also served as an escalation point for the 1st line support.

  • Infrastructure upgrade of an accounting center (replaced server 2008 file server with 2012 R2 and new hardware, upgraded switches, deployed new print server and introduced a new backup solution – in that case Symantec Backup Exec)
  • Provided material (or revised, if came from other IT teams) and training for the external company during the outsourcing of our 1st line

In my first IT-role (I have changed to IT profession after I moved to the UK, with near 10 years experience in financial/office-based roles), I have worked as a first point of contact for the private users of the company. (The company is a software house, providing financial analyst software for both companies and private investors). While I enjoyed working for Updata, I was more interested in work related to infrastructure, also 1st line support soon became unfulfilling, therefore upon receiving an offer, I moved on.
