CV of Tracy Mu Sung

Employment – Engineering

For the last 5 years I have been working as a ruby developer, and then team lead, for a remote first company.  So I have experience in successfully running a distributed team, which, to quote the CEO of my company is ‘simply the best run team I have ever worked with in my 20+ years of working with developers’.

As well as being able to lead tech teams, I’m also a self motivated, organised and productive engineer myself.

Over the last 2 years we have completed a project of migrating our application from a Ruby on Rails monolith to a set of microservices, and are using AWS for our ops with Kubernetes and Istio.
