U.S. Department of Homeland Security
Platform Engineer, Enterprise Infrastructure Division
 I currently lead the engineering team that manages enterprise build tools and platforms for all application development within USCIS OIT. Our development community consists of 150+ development teams on different contracts. We are in the process of migrating all development teams from their own small environments towards shared enterprise platforms, which has helped us achieve our goal of bringing standardization to development practices and procedures across multiple portfolios. We have been making an effort to modernize our development processes to focus more on containerized deployments while shifting security further left within our deployment pipelines, aka The DevSecOps Model.
