With expertise in both front-end and back-end development, Philip aims to design and implement scalable and responsive web applications. He is highly experienced in software development, and DevOps, and proficient in popular front-end frameworks.

Philip's career started as a Junior DevOps Engineer at Qhala Limited from August 2022 to May 2023. During this role, he successfully automated the deployment pipelines using Ansible, Terraform, and AWS, resulting in a 40% reduction in deployment time. He also played a key role in designing and maintaining a highly available and scalable infrastructure on AWS, including EC2 instances, S3 buckets, and VPCs. Philip implemented monitoring and logging solutions using ELK stack and CloudWatch, which enhanced the reliability and security of the company's infrastructure.

He contributed to designing and developing scalable backend solutions using Node.js and Express.js, significantly reducing the processing time for large datasets. Philip also excelled in implementing a CI/CD pipeline using Jenkins and Docker, improving deployment efficiency. Additionally, he worked on developing a data ingestion and processing system using Apache Kafka and Apache Spark. Philip's versatility was showcased when he developed a web application using React.js and Node.js, enhancing the user interface and experience of an existing application.

Philip's journey in software development began with an internship at the National Hospital Insurance Fund (NHIF) from June 2019 to August 2019. During this time, he gained experience in developing internal applications using Java and MySQL, as well as web applications using AngularJS and Node.js.

Beyond his professional achievements, Philip is an active volunteer with the Red Cross, providing disaster relief efforts and promoting disaster preparedness and safety within communities.

Philip holds a Bachelor of Science in Information Technology from Kabarak University, which he completed in December 2020. His coursework covered Data Structures and Algorithms, Web Development, Operating Systems, Database Systems, and Software Engineering.
