Lowrence Kurera has joined Solnet’s Wellington branch as an Infrastructure Engineer in the Platforms team.

Lowrence has many years of experience in infrastructure, having worked in Agile/SAFe environments and most recently, with DevOps-style automation technologies such as Ansible. He has an extensive background in troubleshooting infrastructure issues across virtual and physical (Linux/Windows) server environments and networks. He also brings strong scripting skills in Microsoft Powershell, Azure CLI, and Bash. While he’s worked with Azure, he also has extensive AWS credentials, and is an AWS certified solution architect (associate) and is currently working towards further certifications.

As an Infrastructure Engineer, Lowrence helps clients implement cloud solutions, and resolve support issues related to infrastructure and applications. He is also passionate about automation, “it saves time, and repetitive, manual steps, so that teams can focus on more important matters”, says Lowrence. “I love learning new things and I enjoy solving problems”.

He is committed to broaden his knowledge about cloud technologies including AWS, Azure, and DevOps, as these technologies are vital to modernising critical systems.

Lowrence started his career in Sri Lanka and has worked for multinational companies, providing support to European clients. He moved to New Zealand in 2019 to continue his education, and has earned a post graduate diploma in IT.
