Development Operations, Systems Administration and Security Engineer

Marco’s background is in juggling and restoration. Through the years, this particular combination of studies gave him the chance to travel around Europe and work on some beautiful pieces of art of the Sicilian heritage, including a UNESCO World Heritage Site. During the same years, he became passionate about Linux and, more recently, he fell in love with containerisation, scripting and automation. In his work with Mydex, Marco uses his skills to streamline pipelines, create new tools to help the team and, of course, keep the Mydex platforms up and secure.
