Hi there! My name is Pete Cheslock. Sometimes I talk about Boats.

I enjoy improving companies organizational structures, providing insight into building and growing autonomous high functioning, high performing technical teams. I’m fascinated by the dynamics of high performance, and take great pride in building and supporting those teams. I also enjoy the intricacies of Systems Architecture, Design, and Implementation work. I like to use modern tools to solve difficult technology problems.
Some of the non-technical aspects of roles I’ve had in the past include:
Go-to-market strategy and bringing new products to market
Identifying users and working with Sales and Marketing to create use case and customer demonstrations
Process improvement and analyzing “how work gets done” for engineering or operations teams
Acting as a technical liaison to the executive team.
Acting as a technical consultant to engineering teams, helping them to design solutions to deploy their applications to production.
Recruiting new engineers to the team
Sharing knowledge with technical communities and being an advocate for the companies I work with
You can check out all the conference talks I’ve given here.
I’ve built and managed teams from 2 to 20. Both local and remote teams. I work to bridge the gap between Engineering, Operations, Product and Business Owners.
I’m passionate for anything related to Automation, Infrastructure as Code, Monitoring/Observability and scaling distributed applications. I equally enjoy working with Product, Sales, and Marketing teams to help them focus and frame their go-to-market efforts on the right audience.
