He drove a broad microservice architecture, entirely hosted on AWS and written in Python, to enable quick delivery to production and a strong test strategy.
Wassaf previously worked as a Software Engineer at Hubspot, where he worked with engineering teams across the organization to enable a high level of quality through the development of test automation platforms, easy integration with CI/CD pipelines, and metrics to help the teams to evaluate their software development quality.
