Welcome Costin

20. Jan 2021

Hello, my name is Costin and I like Linux!

In the last 10 years or so I’ve been in various Linux engineering roles, from sysadmining to SREing and a couple in between, but the big reveal is they all require roughly the same set of skills. Since 2015 I was more involved in academia, first while working for CERN and then for EPFL.

Recently I joined VSHN as I find it to be a new breed of IT company, very modern and focused. It managed to shed old adages of the trade while still remaining competitive and performant. For me personally it’s also a window into best „container“ practices, making it a huge learning resource. My role here is that of System Engineer. There is a complicated definition for it for sure, but I find it’s best to explain in simple terms: when a computer is broken, I try to fix it. Most of the times I end up turning it off and on again.

Besides all things Linux, I also enjoy playing video games and reading comic books. When I’m not hunched in front of a computer I go out for bike rides and hikes. In terms of actual projects, I’m always working on various bits and pieces based on spur-of-the-moment inspiration, so it’s close to impossible to predict such things.

Looking forward to working and knowing you all,

Markus Speth

Markus is VSHN's CEO and one of the General Managers.
