My name is Leonidas Spyropoulos (known as artafinde / inglor on many 
platforms) and I'm a Trusted User at Arch Linux [1]. I'm applying to 
become a Junior DevOps in the devops Arch Linux team. I've been running 
Arch Linux from circa 2007 daily with dual boot in the old days and VFIO 
now for gaming.

I've been contributing in open-source projects [2][3] and in Arch Linux 
for about a year or so (when I asked in #archlinux-devops for a gitlab 
account) with patches/MRs for infrastructure, work on keycloak, aurweb 
and more recently a tool for exporting gitlab metrics for prometheus [4][5].

I've been using ansible, terraform, vault and jenkins at work and 
recently changed to gitlab so I think I could apply some of this 
knowledge to Arch Linux infrastructure. Furthermore I got experience in 
Cloud infrastructure (AWS) and Kubernetes cluster along with private 
Docker registry (in AWS) from both devops and software development point 
of view.

My interest in DevOps team is the admin part and automation. I've been 
having personal server(s) [6] for years now and I was part of the admin 
team at my previous job. I think automation and infrastructure-as-code 
is the way to manage infrastructure now days and although we lacked the 
automation at my previous job I very well understand how crucial things 
could be for others and the responsibilities which come moderating 
public facing servers. Additionally I think I can assist on the mundane 
tasks the devops team is currently dealing with because for me it would 
be a new interesting challenge.
