Ben Kulbertis

Development and Operations Engineer

Salt Lake City, Utah, USA

Hey! I'm Ben.

I'm a dev/ops engineer living in Salt Lake City, Utah. I'm current working at Twitch in the Global Service Operations Center (GSOC) developing tooling for video operations and providing operational support to our video systems and networking infrastructure. At Twitch I've been able to further my knowledge of global infratructure best practices and operations demands as well as my programming prowess with Golang. Prior to Twitch I helped develop the SLATE research platform, a Kubernetes-based service layer with a multi-institutional federated edge deployment architecture. I developed MiniSLATE, a Docker Compose based development environment for creating Helm charts for SLATE that utilized a unique Kubernetes-in-Docker architecture. I'm very interested in the development to scalable deployment pipeline, with past experience in Puppet and CI/CD pipelines. I love the command line and quick and useful scripts. I'm proficient in Python, Golang, Javscript/Node, and (abeit probably a bit rusty) Java and PHP, whatever the project demands. I'm also interested in cryptocurrency, the gaming industry in general, and many types of music. If any of my interests interest you, drop me a line at ben@kulbertis.org. See you around!
