Dave Konopka

Hi, I’m Dave. I’m interested in engineering leadership, DevOps practices, and distributed teams.

These days I am an engineering leader who coaches high performing teams to thrive through iterative improvement. I started my career in software development. Along the way I developed my skills in site reliability engineering by approaching the problems of web operations and cloud architectures with a software development mindset. I prefer working remotely after spending more than six years working with distributed teams.
