Ben Buchwald

Head of Shop Operations, 1&1 Telecommunication SE

Ben Buchwald joined 1&1 in 2012 as Operations Engineer for Landline and Mobile provisioning processes. Responsible for running the 1&1 JBoss clusters, he led the company’s first steps into automated cluster provisioning.

In 2016 Ben joined Shop Operations as lead, where his team took automation steps further by adopting Ansible for all deployments. At this time NGINX became more important for the team, as it allowed them to quickly adapt to a fast changing software infrastructure.

1&1 is currently moving to Kubernetes as the platform for its applications.
