My name is Karl Fischer and I am a Software Engineer from Germany.

I am currently working as an Information Security Engineer at the HPS Gesundheitscloud gGmbH in Berlin, but in the past besides Germany have also studied/worked in Finland, Spain and China.

Right now I am focusing on compliance topics, i.e., identifying and implementing modern security standards for IT companies (ISMS, specifically ISO27001/BSI).

Before that my main focus was on platform architecture and SRE/DevOps. I dealt with different kinds of automation in cloud and bare metal infrastructures (for both, micro service and monolith architectures). This included automating the rollout of cloud infrastructures, provisioning bare metal servers with configuration management tools and building continuous delivery pipelines for containerized or packaged applications.

In general I am always happy if I get the chance to experiment with new technologies and explore new fields.

Besides programming, I try my best learning Mandarin Chinese and Spanish. Also, I love playing classical guitar, especially Flamenco.
