Armand Grillet


Hi there! I'm Armand, a French engineering manager who works in Germany. I love coaching people, pair-programming, and learning about how cloud computing works.

I currently work at Grafana Labs, in the Backend Databases team. I manage the Query squad, working on transforming Mimir from a Prometheus database to a metrics database, and the Alerting squad, focusing on the new alerting experience in Grafana.

I previously worked at D2iQ (formerly Mesosphere). I have been senior software engineer in the Kubernetes Platform team and engineering manager in the Cluster Ops team. I worked on Apache Mesos and as a SRE before that.

During my free time, I led until early 2021 the tech team at Volt Europa. I managed the contributors working on the tools needed to grow as a non-profit: the team, event, and newsletter management systems. The tools we developed supported more than 25000 members in 30 countries.

I have previously studied a European Master’s Programme in Cloud Computing with a minor in Innovation & Entrepreneurship. During this program, I have written a master thesis for the Service-centric Networking department of TU Berlin and done multiple internships, including one for the INRIA.

Feel free to contact me on LinkedIn. Last but not least, here is my resume.
