Introducing our new “Meet the Splunker” blog series. This entry highlights a Splunker who was recognized through the “Living Our Values Program,” a peer recognition program focused on recognizing employees who consistently demonstrate our values: Innovative, Passionate, Disruptive, Open and Fun. Nominations are considered role models to others in the organization.
In this edition, we’re happy to highlight Senior DevOps Engineer Ted Xiao. Based in Shanghai, Ted was recently recognized as being a Splunker who most represents our corporate value of “passion”.
Ted demonstrates genuine enthusiasm, commitment and interest in Splunk’s products and people, and has a contagious energy that inspires those around him. Here's some additional feedback from Ted’s team:
“It's often to see Ted work late to resolve urgent cases even if it's at mid-night. His passion at work is quite impressive. Ted is always willing to help others. When I was new to this area and had a lot of questions, Ted would patiently explain the details even when he was quite busy. I do get a lot of help from him. Ted always keeps an eye on the new techs, so he can quickly advise when it comes to our work.”
“Ted Xiao is the key expert in CI/CD area, regarding Jenkins, UCP, Docker technologies. He has provided enormous support to my team members as well as other members, both inside and outside the infra team, helping to resolve critical issues and setting up the CI pipeline.
