Speaker: Sarah Wells

Technical Director for Operations and Reliability @FT (Financial Times)

Sarah Wells has been a developer for 20 years, leading delivery teams across consultancy, financial services, and media. Building the FT's content and metadata publishing platform using a microservices-based architecture led her to develop a deep interest in operability, observability, and DevOps, and at the beginning of 2018 she took over responsibility for Operations and Reliability at the Financial Times.  

More recently, Sarah moved to take over Engineering Enablement, adding platform and security engineering into the mix. She now leads a group of teams at the FT who build tools and services for other engineers.
