My name is Tom Stewart and if you are viewing this then I have probably applied to work for you in some way whether that be a full-time position or a contract/freelance type of agreement. I prefer a work environment that keeps me learning at my edges and always pushing forward with technology. If I am not actively engaged in a project, I will be working on planning the next one. And when the work is done and there is nothing for me to do, I fill my remaining time with creative pursuits. I would like to apply this enthusiasm to focus on a project and work with your team to drive success for us all.
I enjoy challenges and a unique work experience. I am battle hardened with diving into complex environments and figuring out how they work and then finding ways to improve them for the company’s and customers satisfaction. My attitude towards getting great work accomplished in a speedy manor plus my background in large diverse (mostly Linux) system orchestration, scripting, automation, SRE best practices, make me a great asset to any team. I am a flexible worker that can work independently and achieve great results, but I also value and encourage a strong team focused environment for those times when things are not working well. It is paramount to have trust between colleagues that we can solve any problem together.
I am most interested in joining a highly-collaborative remote-work friendly culture and an organization that is committed to improving lives through some social initiative or core values. The single greatest objective qualifier that I am looking for in companies offering new opportunities, is for the value of my and my co-workers output to do more measurable good to this world than harm. If your company shows these values through action, then I would love to talk with you.
