It used to be bankers who were accused of jumping from job to job every few years. Nowadays, the same accusation might be levelled at senior technologists with data engineering skills.
Edoardo Scalafiotti has worked for three different companies in the past four years, each more illustrious than the next.
After spending three years at Monitor, the strategy consulting arm of Deloitte, where was latterly chief technologist, Scalafiotti has just joined Amazon Web Services (AWS) in London as a senior solutions engineer.
Prior to Deloitte, Scalafiotti worked at supermarket chain Sainsbury's for a year (as an innovation engineer, not a cashier) and before that he spent four years working for Daviom Data, a Belgian business intelligence company which no longer appears to be in existence.
A strong exponent of Rust and Go, Scalafiotti can be seen talking about his experiences at Sainbury's here, or you can see his Github page here.
Scalafiotti joins AWS at a time when the cloud service is being espoused by the likes of Goldman Sachs, whose co-CIO Marco Argenti came from AWS in October. Argenti wants to turn Goldman into a provider of finance-specific application programming interfaces (APIs). As a senior solutions engineer, Argenti will be working with AWS to develop cloud solutions tailored to the needs of particular clients.
