Thilo is an engineer-turned-manager with more than 20 years of experience in the Linux OS space. He started his professional life with tinkering in embedded Linux systems in the early 2000s. After many years working at the kernel and plumbing level, Thilo moved on from the embedded space to work for cloud companies as lead engineer, program manager, and now engineering manager. From 2019 onward he embraced The Container and took a deep dive into the world of Kubernetes. While he nowadays manages a team that focuses on maintaining Flatcar Container Linux, a community-focused container-optimised Linux distro based on CoreOS, he still enjoys tinkering with bits and pieces, and sometimes even gets to help with the OS - specialising on Flatcar's SDK.
