Colin Walker

Full stack generalist with significant experience building AWS infrastructure and Kubernetes clusters.

I’ve worked to scale out a high throughput email delivery platform, built a Kubernetes cluster for an enterprise product, managed Cassandra databases and built production Ruby on Rails applications.

My GitHub is full of all my fun projects and is a good representation of the types of programming that I enjoy working on. I love to play with distributed systems, developer CI/CD tools, building databases and sometimes hacking my own fitbit.

I have been a sailing instructor for over 6 years and enjoy sailing whenever I can. I try and keep my passion for teaching throughout my work and enjoy working on productive and fun teams. I occasionally tutor at Lighthouse Labs.
