Contino Launches Australian Office Led by Experienced DevOps Leader Daniel Williams
Contino, the global enterprise DevOps and cloud transformation consultancy, is pleased to announce the launch of its new office in Melbourne, Australia.
Building on its bases in London and New York, Contino is expanding into Australia to meet the growing demand for software delivery innovation among large Australian enterprises.
Backed by a US$30m venture capital investment from Columbia Capital, Contino has the scale to support global projects and large enterprise transformation programs. With its new base in Melbourne, a thriving tech hub in its own right, Contino is ideally positioned to help leading Australian companies with strategic transformation projects and modernisation initiatives, as well as support the creation of a more vibrant engineering culture within those organisations.
Dan, originally from Australia, brings a wealth of digital transformation and automation experience to the Contino team, having spent over 17 years working internationally across the financial services, retail, e-commerce and telecommunications sectors.
He is passionate about all things DevOps and has gained deep technological and commercial expertise at leading global companies such as JP Morgan, HSBC, The Net-a-Porter Group and Sapient Global Markets, as well as at two of his own start-ups. Over the years, Dan has led a broad range of complex transformation projects and has honed his hands-on technical skills across electronic trading environments, fulfillment automation, network infrastructure and enterprise transformation consulting.
Dan commented: “We are looking forward to partnering with Australian enterprises across all sectors and sharing our extensive expertise and unique dual delivery and upskilling approach, which not only helps our customers deliver on strategic projects with more agility and cost effectiveness, but crucially supports them in building their own DevOps capabilities”.
Matt Farmer, Contino Co-founder and President (EMEA) remarked: “With the current global surge in cloud uptake and digital transformation, these are very exciting times and we are looking forward to working with the biggest brands in Australia and the Asia Pacific region and to building on our existing partnerships with Amazon Web Services, Docker and HashiCorp in a new market that’s full of potential”.
