Recruiters & Co

To Recruiters, Head Hunters, Talent Seekers, Hiring Managers, etc, wanting to contact me (Oliver Schoenborn) about current or potential work opportunities, please bear in mind that without setting boundaries, I would get too many connection and meeting requests, most of which would be a waste of both my time and yours.
For this reason, I recommend that you contact me ONLY if you can answer YES to all of the following regarding this or future opportunities:
  • Opportunity focuses on at least 2 of the following :
    • cloud infrastructure as code (terraform, pulumi)
    • kubernetes
    • python / Go
  • Opportunity involves mostly linux
  • Opportunity involves at least one of AWS, Azure, or GCP
  • Opportunity is mostly remote (once-in-a-while site visits are ok, like a day or 2 per month)
  • Opportunity can be c2c (corp to corp): contract is with my corporation (directly or via a contracting agency eg Toptal, Procom, etc)
Thank you for your understanding!

Relocation, On-Site work
I am happy to visit the workplace when necessary (a couple of times a month), but relocation is not possible.
Weeks, months, a year, open-ended, retainer, hourly, part-time, full time, anything goes.
You can end a contract on short notice for whatever reason (funding, change of direction, etc), as long as all work done before I got notice of the termination gets paid.
I am a Canadian citizen.
However I have worked for US companies through agencies like Toptal, EvolveSquads, and others.
Security Clearance
Significantly higher than Enhanced Reliability. Talk to me for details.
I have Professional Liability Insurance and I am a member of the APCC (Association of Professional Canadian Consultants).
