Curriculum Vitae

May 1, 2016

I run Liebach Consulting, doing mostly DevOps consulting.

So, check the CV below, perhaps connect with me on LinkedIn, and lets see if I could fit into your business plans. I have experience working remote, and would love to do that again. Currently I work a fulltime onsite gig.

I’d be happy to accept small’ish remote jobs that can be done outside normal work hours.

Personal

I live with my wife out in the east Jutland boondocks, about 10 km south-west of Randers, Denmark, and I have two kids aged 9 & 11 that stay with us every second weekend. Personality wise I am an Enneagram Type 5 with a 6 Wing, “The Investigator” & “The Loyalist”, respectively, a Myers-Briggs INTJ. I feel both descriptions fit me quite well.

Skills

Operating Systems: FreeBSD, OpenBSD, Linux (Ubuntu, Debian, CentOS, RedHat and others), macOS

Networking Equipment: HP ProCurve switches, Vyatta Network OS firewall, Cisco ASA 5500 series, Linux-HA/heartbeat and ldirectord.

Webservers: Apache httpd, OpenBSD httpd, thttpd, Tomcat

Mailservers: Postfix, OpenBSD smtpd, Courier IMAPd & POP3d, Sendmail.

Databases: MySQL (and friends: MariaDB, Percona), PostgreSQL, MS-SQL.

Protocols: HTTP, TCP/IP, SMTP, DNS, TLS, SSL etc. I know what I need, and if I don’t, I learn, it really isn’t that hard in my experience.

I have basically worked with the full stack involved in running internet services, including backup, firewalls, managing server rooms, upstream internet providers etc.

Got the triathlon bug as a 21 year old, and have been a triathlete ever since. I did forget to train for 8 years (1997–2005) but otherwise I’ve kept myself reasonably fit, doing 6 Ironman distance races in the process, plus a lot of shorter races.

In april 2018 I realized that trail and ultra running was what I wanted to do, so I did.

Can’t imagine not training at least half-seriously, it’s my relaxation, and an important part of my social life too.
