Employment

  • IT Engineer - Master Thesis2016 (6 months)

    SecuTix - Lausanne, Switzerland

    Development of a new monitoring platform for the company private clouds based on machine learning as methods based on thresholds or simple trends have come to their limits. We applied leading-edge machine learning techniques to detect abnormal operational conditions on technical and business data before they become incidents. The new platform is based on the existing monitoring/sensors infrastructure (RRDTool, Nagios, Cacti, CheckMK, ElasticSearch) and completely integrated into the alerting system. This platform reduced the running cost by greatly diminishing the number of alerts sent to the support team.

  • IT Engineer2016 (6 months)

    PSiDEO (Intership) - Geneva, Switzerland

    Improved an existing solution for easily software/update deployment on client platforms directly by the client himself using SCCM. The solution is web based and enable the client to manage his IT infrastructure : creating/updating local platforms for departments/offices, deploy software automatically on platforms/machines, monitor the update deployment or request support. The performance of this tool has been greatly improved by caching all the SCCM data in Microsoft SQL database.
