Armand Grillet


Hi there! I'm Armand, a French software engineer who works in Germany. I love mentoring people, pair-programming, and learning how cloud computing works.

I currently work as a senior software engineer at D2iQ (formerly Mesosphere) in the Kubernetes team. The two products I work on are Konvoy, a Kubernetes distribution, and Kommander, a tool to manage clusters across cloud providers and on-prem environments.

I previously managed the Cluster Ops team taking care of the DC/OS Command Line Interface and Go client. I worked on Apache Mesos and as a SRE before that.

During my free time, I lead the European tech team at Volt Europa. I manage the members working on the tools we need to grow as a non-profit: the team, event, and newsletter management systems. The tools we develop support more than 25000 members in 30 countries.

I have previously followed a Master’s Programme with a major in Cloud Computing and a minor in Innovation & Entrepreneurship. First year in Rennes (Université de Rennes 1) and second year in Berlin (Technische Universität Berlin). 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.

I have a blog and I previously wrote on Medium a Comparison of Container Schedulers and a short version of my thesis: Parallel Self-Tuning Spectral Clustering on Apache Spark.

Feel free to contact me by email or using LinkedIn. Last but not least, here is my resume.
