“Kiel is fantastic!” —Pierre Lebeau, Google
Kiel has superb skills in gathering business requirements, extracting key needs, organizing and making a plan, and turning that plan into reality. He has led major projects in networking, security, scalability, and systems architecture.
Systems Engineer for Oregon Coast Aquarium in Newport, Oregon. Alongside more traditional duties such as installing new spam filters, maintaining desktop computer security, and updating physical networking and power infrastructure, Kiel had the opportunity to bring live video from underwater cameras to local hospital waiting rooms.
Systems and Network Administrator for Backcountry.com in Park City, Utah. During a period of rapid growth, Kiel was critical in building out hardware, network, and infrastructure software capacity for much improved scalability. He enhanced network stability and security, automated builds of new servers, and improved the infrastructure for code promotion from development areas to the complex production environment.
Systems Administrator and Network Security Officer for CaduRx in Salt Lake City, Utah. CaduRx was a brand-new prescription management company with very high security requirements; Kiel put in place key network security infrastructure including firewalls and intrusion detection systems.
Kiel enjoys snow/skate/wake-boarding, drawing, the learning process, reading interesting books, and using truly free software to solve problems and play.
