About Me

Justin O’Connor

Charlotte, NC

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

I am a leader in the Cloud and DevSecOps space at a major consulting firm in the US. I am responsible for helping our clients build and automate cloud platforms that enable:

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

I have helped teams implement Agile and DevOps principals and practices at scale and as well as modern cloud telemetry strategies.

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.
