MIAX Exchange Group

Principal Technologist/SRE

My team was responsible for building out 3 options & 1 equity exchange over the past 9 years. I am responsible for the day today operations of all aspects of the exchange(s). The dev ops team is responsible for all aspects of the exchange(FrontOffice, BackOffice). I am responsible for production, simulation/DR & customer UAT environments. I have architected & developed automated solutions to deploy new software, monitor the systems in real time, and run pro-active checks before/after the exchange is up. Further, I run incident management during outage scenarios. I constantly evaluate and have further introduced new technologies in the operations team keeping in mind the pros/cons of disruptive changes. I designed & implemented an on-prem observability pipeline based on Cribl/Splunk and Kibana/Elasticsearch to gather events/metrics from the disparate stack of applications(C++, Java, Springboot etc), OS kernel events, Network Metrics keeping a close eye on robustness, scalability and cost without cutting any corners. Over the past 8+ years, I don't believe in change for the sake of change, but I am open to and constantly evaluate new technologies which I take great pride in not just implementing it in house but more importantly share my enthusiasm and knowledge with my entire team so we grow together as a team. I am dogged about solving difficult problems.
