My name is Jon Chiappetta and I am a Seneca@York college graduate with a bachelors degree in “Informatics and Security”.
I used to work at Seneca’s CDoT, which allowed me to maintain a build farm of 50+ ARM-based machines so that they can build the necessary packages that make up the Fedora Linux Operating System.
I then worked as a System Administrator for Afilias (Managed DNS for .org/.info) along with a mix of DevOps work for internal company services such as user management scripts and automation. This was my first step into the corporate world!
After a little a while I transitioned to Google California and did some work as a Technical Solutions Engineer which helped to troubleshoot, debug, and fix small bugs for our largest enterprise customers for Google Calendar, Drive, and Billing.
After a couple of years at Google I wanted to come back home to Canada and took an opportunity to work at a smaller bank (NBC) with a small DevOps engineering team. I helped to write a number of Bash shell scripts and manage the Java services we ran for the financial traders. I was working my way up to contributing small Java fixes in our frameworks too.
The bank went through re-structuring layoffs and since I was the newest member of the team I am now looking for new opportunities to contribute my best tech knowledge and experience!
