Jim Park: Principal Consultant

Jim is a veteran of the United States Marine Corps, where as an telephone and personal computer systems maintainer, he was able to design a system to analyze usage patterns and predict repair part demand for his battalion in Operation Iraqi Freedom II. In so doing, he was able to reduce turn around time for over half of repairs from 3-6 months to 1-2 days, completing over 1000 repairs in 7 months.

Since then, Jim has developed a career around building tools to maximally leverage engineering time and focus. The current preferred software delivery stack is GitHub Actions and Slack, which he uses to build Preview and Deploy systems for startups and enterprises alike.

Jim has worked with many Silicon Valley companies to improve their Software Delivery Performance and Site Reliability. When not in the office, Jim can be found at the park trying to train his cats to wear leashes.
