more about Moovit
The Moovit infrastructure in Azure is actually part of the Azure Cloud and the service is known as Mobility.
The Azure Maps Mobility feature serves Moovit transit data to any developer on Microsoft's Azure Cloud.
In a few short months I brought the service from zero to Public Preview since May 2019.
I was also responsible for all aspects necessary to make Moovit's DevOps processes Multi-Cloud across both Azure and AWS. This included Python based Automation, Monitoring, CI/CD and general cloud architecture redesign.
As part of this project I redesigned the CI/CD workflow for the entire server side teams to be multi-cloud and identical across Azure and AWS.
A major part of the redesign was done working closely with Spot (Formerly Spotinst) R&D Team to develop a new software deployment tool from scratch that best met Moovit's tech stack and requirements.

More about Hometalk
My responsibilities have included ALM tools, server and database infrastructure and automation across the stack.
My major accomplishment at Hometalk was enhancing the Selenium test automation infrastructure by migrating it to Linux and enable multi-node parallel running of the Selenium functional tests.
The project improved reliability and speeded up the tests by a factor of 10.
This enabled the developers to have a much quicker feedback loop on features and as a result, software could be rolled out multiple times a day.
