Here’s Dmitrii, our Team Lead

“Hi! I am Dmitriy! I have been working for Catawiki for the third year, and I never stop being surprised that Catawiki constantly challenges our team to help businesses grow faster. Site Reliability is a young but solid team with open and passionate members. Together with the other developers, we’ve been on an exceptional journey scaling Catawiki Platform from just a few servers managed manually to a dozen Kubernetes clusters running in the Cloud powering tens of microservices. Cloud-Native technologies and automation are just a couple things that we employ on every step to take us further down the line with the greatest efficiency. We are proud of all projects we have completed and look forward to new people joining our team. “
