About You 
Deep experience running web apps at scale 
You're a coder, not an administrator. You don't manage one server at a time; you build frameworks for configuring and monitoring them 
You have opinions on what makes a good DevOps tech stack, but you know that tech is dynamic so you don't limit yourself to just one approach 
You're a thoughtful communicator, positive, with a bias for action
