As part of the Devops team I provided support to the developers and project stakeholders by managing a sophisticated multi layered infrastructure built on Microsoft Azure. Most of the codebase was written in Ruby, but other tools like Azure Cli and Bash scripts were used on a daily basis. 3rd party tools like Concourse CI, Splunk and Periscope Data were also part of the infrastructure.
