I love the Galapagos Islands. Absolutely incredible wildlife”
Nathan Deamer Principal Engineer
What is your biggest achievement at Go City so far?
Moving to a DEVOPs culture in all engineering teams with each team monitoring their code in production. When I started at Go City the main way the teams knew there were problems was because a ticket would come in along the lines of ‘xx is down’. I introduced observability best practices and tooling to alert engineers when there is a problem (hopefully) before any customers even notice. I also encouraged all engineers to think about the non functional requirements alongside every new feature they are building for customers.
If we go back a few years, why did you choose engineering as a career?
Where was your favourite holiday?
Easily the Galapagos Islands. Absolutely incredible wildlife and snorkelling with sharks was amazing!
What is your favourite music or band?
Blink 182 (Yes I am still 15)
Guilty pleasure or hobby?
My smart home - almost everything in my house can be controlled by my voice, ranging from lights, tv, curtains, blinds and washing machine. Scary right?!
What don’t we know about you?
I grew up with lots of animals, ask me about growing up with lizards and marmoset monkeys!
