Vyshnav is an energetic and enthusiastic Associate Engineer at CloudifyOps. Having joined us as a fresher, he has proven his mettle over the years, with his passion for learning and upskilling in Cloud and DevOps. Read on to hear Vyshnav’s thoughts on life at CloudifyOps.

About yourself

Tell us about your educational background and previous experiences.

I have a B.Sc. degree in Physics. I started my career with CloudifyOps.

How did you hear about us and what interested you in joining our team?

My cousin referred me for a role in CloudifyOps. He knew our CEO Vaitheeswaran and felt that it would be a good opportunity for me.

About your profession

What do you love most about the Cloud and DevOps field?

I love what I am doing. I am still learning about the field and like everything so far.

What is on your wish list for the next 12 months at CloudifyOps?

I would like to learn more about Cloud Security and obtain a certification.

How do you motivate yourself to do the best for yourself and the organization?

I had a gap between my graduation and getting a job. I was keen to make up for the time I lost and was focused on learning as much as I could and working on different projects. I was given a chance by the CloudifyOps leaders when other companies were rejecting me based on the gap in my resume. My strong motivation was to give this team my very best efforts in return for their confidence in me.

Journey with CloudifyOps

How have you grown professionally while on our team?

For the first two months, I was shadowing senior engineers. From there, I moved to projects on the AWS GovCloud, GitLab, and Jenkins, among others. I have gained the confidence to be a client point of contact and have handled many client interactions.

How has CloudifyOps helped you develop yourself personally (soft skills)?

I had immense opportunities to develop my communication and presentation skills. I have handled multiple demos for our clients, which has boosted my self-confidence. We do not get such opportunities in other large organizations for a person with my level of experience.

What kinds of resources have you taken advantage of while on our team?

I have built my knowledge of AWS through various resources. I have contributed to many proofs of concept and I like the freedom we have to create and build it on my own. I also took advantage of learning in real time while working on many projects.

What have been your biggest accomplishments on our team? Where have you made the biggest impact?

I worked on a project, with support from my manager, for an HR software provider involving Ansible, Terraform, and Jenkins. The solution we recommended to them was accepted. My happy moment was when the client gave us good feedback and how the solution is working well for them.

What was the most fun moment with the team?

The party we had in our previous office in March 2021 right before we moved to our current office premises was the most fun for me. I was new to the team and this helped me know others in the team better.

Upskilling and Certifications

What is the one thing you learned in the last month related to your work?

Always keep your work clean. Do not push cleaning up to the end of your priority list. The chances of making errors or missing out on something are higher if you do so.

What do you like about the learning/training initiatives at CloudifyOps?

I like how anyone in CloudifyOps can contribute to the learning/training initiatives at CloudifyOps. Someone new to Cloud and DevOps might need 2-3 months to learn the basics from the self-training resources provided in CloudifyOps. With the right aptitude, it can give them knowledge worth a year’s training that they may receive in another organization.

What certification are you preparing for now? Or what was the most recent certification you obtained?

I recently became a Certified Kubernetes Administrator (CKA) and completed my AWS DevOps Professional certification.

Culture at CloudifyOps

What are three words you would use to describe CloudifyOps?

Cool, comfort, opportunity (if you take those opportunities and grow).

What has your experience been with our company culture?

I appreciate the fact that they didn’t expect me to have a specific degree. If you have the skill set, you have the opportunity to work on interesting projects here. I remember the first day I reported to the office, there was an issue and our CEO Vaitheeswaran and  CTO/Founder Sushanth were involved in resolving it. There was no blame game and the sole objective was to get things back on track.

How would you describe your team?

The team here is good. Everyone is open to collaborating. The leadership team understands the workload each of us has. They make us feel comfortable and that boosts our productivity. I miss some of the initial team members who were very helpful to me.

What are some things you have noticed about our leadership team?

The leads here are approachable, open to any questions you may have, and are ready to listen to your ideas and suggestions. They do not differentiate between freshers and experienced people.

Words of advice

What advice would you give to someone who wants to enter this field?

Mastering the fundamentals or the basics of any tool or technology is extremely important. As you build your knowledge to advance levels, the fundamentals will always help you. If you don’t build a strong foundation, you will stay behind while others move ahead.
