Hi, my name is Ben Bellekens and I’m looking for a Python developer.

Aside of being the CEO of CrowdScan, i’m a backend engineer and a devops engineer. My main focus is to create a distributed backend system that runs anywhere. The system proceses a lot of real-time IoT traffic (300k messages per day for a single installation). To develop and deploy our stack i used following technologies: Python, MQTT, MongoDb, Grafana, Docker, and Kubernetes. These tools allowed me to develop our backend stack, which contains 15 containers in production deployment. Furthermore, integrating efficiency in terms of automation (infrastructure as a code) is something i like the most. What do you think about this concept?

My challenges


  1. Make time for myself
  2. Manage my e-mail
  3. Write a README

What is my mojo


  1. Program code that doesn’t crash.
  2. Efficiency is the key to stability.
  3. Teamwork makes the dream work.
  4. Don’t stay in the comfort zone.

About last week


  1. Busy week as usual.
  2. Reading about security vulnerabilities in Docker images, containers, and kubernetes. deployments
  3. Implementing and testing the impact of these vulnerabilities.
  4. Deploy fixes to solve the security challenges.
  5. Data integration with a strategic partner.

I’m turned off by


  1. Lack of initiative
  2. I don’t know
  3. Complaining without suggestions
