Hey there! I'm JK Gunnink, a software and cloud engineer with a passion for bringing rigor and operational efficiency to engineering teams. I'm a serverless specialist and harbinger of DevOps, and I love to bake in security practices along the way.

I have a wealth of experience in cloud computing, DevOps, and application security. I'm a frequent speaker at conferences and meetups, and I'm always willing to share my knowledge with others.

In addition to my technical expertise, I'm also a strong communicator and collaborator. I'm able to work effectively with people at all levels, and I'm always willing to go the extra mile to help my team succeed.

I really love building things, be it software, cloud infrastructure, helping to augment software teams to be elite performers or build out scalable and secure platforms. As a technical leader, I enjoy helping and uplifting capabilities from all I interact with and keep my tools sharp by attending conferences and experimenting with numerous side projects. In my day to day I love helping my team and my customers build and operate reliable, scalable, and secure software and platforms.

I have seven industry certifications:

I have been named Google Developer Expert for Google Cloud.

Previously, I was an AWS APN Ambassador.
