Philipp Garbe, Lead Platform Engineer at Personio
Hero since 2018
Philipp works as a Lead Platform Engineer at Personio in Munich. As part of the Infrastructure Engineering team, he ensures that Personio is built and operated with excellence. Prior to that, he worked as product owner in the platform team of RIO, and has been involved in AutoScout24's journey to the cloud for many years.
He is driven by technologies and tools that allow him to deliver and release faster and more often. He expects that every commit automatically goes into production so it shouldn't be a surprise that he's excited about microservices, containers and cloud-native technologies. Affected by Pain Driven Development, he believes that things need to be changed whenever the pain is big enough.
Philipp had his first contact with AWS in 2013 and became addicted fast. He can be found talking at Meetups and Conferences mostly about topics like Docker, ECS, CDK, and CloudFormation and his findings are also then shared on his blog.
