About Joris Roovers

I’m an engineering leader working @ Cisco, focussed on infrastructure automation and Cloud Native technology. I’ve held both management and technical roles, and am passionate about leading globally distributed software engineering teams and building a culture of trust, purpose and engineering excellence.

I currently work full-time remote from my home near Breda, The Netherlands where I live with my family, although I tend to travel frequently for work. I was originally born and raised near Antwerp, Belgium.

Outside of work, I enjoy programming, and learning about software, technology and science. When away from the computer, I enjoy travelling, cooking, hiking, doing home improvement, and the occasional scuba dive.
