Portrait of Jérôme Barotin – Devops / SRE Engineer.
« With the S4E team, energy is under control »
Who are you ?
Jérôme Barotin, 38 years old a university graduated engineer (Nantes, Lorient and Le Mans Universities) I have been passionate about IT since I was a child.
After 15 years working mainly on supervision and mobile networks, I joined S4E three years ago to develop the Energysoft sotware and in particular to evolve the infrastructure towards the cloud.
Could you tell us about your job ?
As part of the S4E team, the editor of the SAAS software based in Lorient, I am a Devops/SRE engineer. My job consists of making sure the Energysoft software works correctly. This involves principally:
Supervising and ensuring the good operation of the Energysoft solution (communication with the developers, monitoring the system indicators and the identification of causes, update of third-party software)
Making sure that the Energysoft solution is adaptable to several European clouds
Planning the future evolutions of the infrastructure (Capaplanning)
Managing the interactions (API) with third parties
Managing the back ups
Respecting the norms in situ (Security and networks)
Developing the system and the lower level of the application (Java and Python)
Managing the numeric tools of the team (gitlab)
I am also responsible for the modelisation part of the irradiations on Energysoft (Python, Scikit Learn, numpy, PVlib).
What sort of colleague are you ?
A longterm Linuxian, I am passionate about Open Source, algorithms and state of the art IT science. I like understanding how things work and enjoy discussing my ideas in order to develop them.
What do you enjoy doing at the weekend?
At the weekend I like making the most of my region by going on a boatride or out into the nature with family and friends. I also like buying old vinyl records !
