Hello, I'm

Jeff Kloythanomsup

A DevOps Engineer turned digital nomad


Who is Jeff K.?

I'm an expert in infrastructure engineering. Currently, I am at Rackspace as a Senior Cloud/DevOps Engineer, working remotely as I travel the world, though my home base is the western United States. Before this role, I worked at Rcktshp, X-Team, Upside Business Travel, Red Ventures, Onica, and QuadraNet. I hold a BA in Sociology from San Francisco State University and have done PG studies in Global Justice at The University of Sheffield.

I consider myself a computer enthusiast, a human/social rights activist, a dog lover and carer, an observer of cities, an audience member of standup comedy and poetry slam, and a seasoned traveler. I have been working with computers since childhood and have developed extensive skills in all things digital. When away from the desk, I enjoy e-skating around town, trying out new restaurants, doing landscape photography, and traveling abroad. So far, I have been to 38 countries and am not stopping any time soon. My current goal is to experience 60 countries across 5 continents by age 40.

I am a proud political-economic progressive interested in human rights and am inspired by the topics of: anti-repression, anti-racism, anti-war, feminism, socialism, drug policy reform, and immigration reform. On the streets, I have livestreamed various protests & rallies from various locations, such as: Oakland, Occupy Wall Street, and London.

I have completed courses in JavaScript, Node.js, and Python 3. I'm currently helping organizations migrate their stacks toward more current technologies, such as by utilizing platforms like AWS and Kubernetes. Additionally, I am studying for the Certified Cloud Security Professional certification.
