My name is Javier Ruiz Jiménez, I am an entrepreneur and an adventurer.
I had been providing IT services to companies since I was 18. I studied a MSE, Master in Computer Science Engineering at Universidad Autónoma de Madrid. During those years I helped many small companies set up their first networks, hardware and software, web presence and e-mail.
A few years later I funded a company to provide IT services to companies, the company was born with 3000 Euro and growth without any external funding to a head count of more than 40 software engineers.
Bootstrapping my company without investors was challenging and had an impact in every decision made. Low budget was replaced with hard work, creativity and optimization of every resource.
After 16 years the company was providing SaaS for production planning and metering of electricity (+2 Billion Euro/year) and impacting electricity prices for millions of customers across Europe and America for some of the biggest energy producers of the world.
Designing, building and supporting all those systems with very limited resources was an amazing endeavor accomplished by highly motivated team.
IT Wonder Lab was born with the mission to create and share best practices for building and maintaining complex cloud infrastructures.
I also write about the software that I love to use and share small recipes for automation of Cloud Infrastructure.
I am available for challenging IT projects involving go to cloud strategy, on-premises to cloud migration, infrastructure automation, project management and IT operations.
