Curriculum Vitae

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.

1992–2018 Triathlon, Trail and Ultra Running

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.
