Dave Konopka

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

Let's work together!

Are you hiring for remote engineering leadership positions? I help teams thrive through iterative improvement. Here's my resume. Let's talk.

I'm also available for DevOps project work. Are you fighting fires instead of serving your customers? Hire me to identify the roadblocks and make improvements so you can get back to focusing on your customers.

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’ve worked with distributed teams for over six years and strongly prefer working remotely.
