My name is Bartek (full: Bartłomiej) and I am from Poland and precisely from the city called Gdańsk.

I am some curious and (bit too) ambitious human that happened to dive very deep into software engineering waters. My first dev job started in 2012 and since then I enjoy delivering many challenging projects with many awesome people I met on my way.

My main focus was always building and running software in web/backend/distributed systems/infrastructure areas. Even though I have on-going experience as a global-scale SRE I love development the most: I love building pragmatic, scalable, high quality solutions.

I am always looking forward to hearing feedback (: If you feel angry that what I say is totally wrong, I would love to hear that. This way we all learn (:

I used to work at Improbable: Amazing Gaming UK Startup. With global scale Kubernetes infrastructure, we were using and developing technically impressive unique systems. At some point, a couple of years ago, with Fabian Reinartz, we created Thanos project, which got some popularity as a kind of default choice for scaling Prometheus. That started a shift to work fully on open source around the Prometheus ecosystem.

Currently, I live in London and I am really grateful to work on a daily basis with one of the best engineers in the world in both Red Hat and during my open source work in Prometheus ecosystem.

Rest of my time is reserved by my beloved wife & family, volleyball and sometimes cars (:
