About Jonas...

I'm technically a software engineer by trade but I'm also a generalist with background in operations and have been in the past one or more of the following: software engineer, site reliability engineer, devops generalist, database administrator, technical support analyst, technical writer, systems designer, amateur cook, and professional curmudgeon.

I'm currently working at Figure Technologies in Reno, NV as part of the Core Technology Software Engineering team helping them with their Kotlin code, REST Micro Services, Kubernetes, Databases, CI/CD, or anything else they can think of.

My technical knowledge is not limited to JVM technologies. I worked in cross-platform environments which used Windows, Linux and other Unix flavors. I am fluent in several scripting and programming languages, including Kotlin, Java, Python, C#, SQL, Bash Shell, and I'm always tinkering with the next shiny thing.
