About Me

Justin O’Connor

Charlotte, NC

Somewhere strategizing, prototyping, designing, architecting, coding or traveling.

I am the Lead Azure Cloud Platform Automation Engineer for a Big 4 consulting firm in the US. I am responsible for directing our teams on how to build and automate our cloud platforms to help:

  • Business teams innovate and deliver better products faster to happier customers
  • Application developers have greater control over their environments
  • Engineers operate our platforms at scale with agility, reliability, and security

I am also responsible for our Agile and DevOps principals and practices as well as our telemetry strategy.

I love working with technology end-to-end, ideation to delivery and operations. I am as comfortable at the command line or in a code editor as I am sitting across the table from thought leaders and business executives discussing strategy.

I have worked directly with clients to sell and deliver work across a variety of industries and technology domains as well as with internal technology organizations.

As long as I am learning and growing and helping others to do the same I am happy. I’m driven by a sense of purpose and enjoy bringing people together to accomplish more as a team than as individuals.

I love my wife and kids and have other hobbies including woodworking and traveling.
