In my overall journey,
1. I started the Platform team (Infrastructure), groomed devs to the DevOps role and later expanded to Engineering Experience & Security.
2. Introduced CI/CD process for the organization and built tooling around it, which improved the CD process by 50%.
3. Built Cost Management tool that reduced infra cost per product by ~25%.
4. Led security initiatives for 200+ apps and services, achieving 75% in security score in 6 months.
5. Heavily contributed to open source products like Bahmni, DHIS2 & OpenMRS.
