I have been the backend Chapter Lead of the Vodafone's Digital eXperience Layer, a Kubernetes-based middleware.
During my employment, I set up a team of 30 developers, and introduced radically new technologies and restructured the DXL in a way that would prove to be 60% more efficient in terms of resources and raw performance of Microservices. Using the DXL middleware, user operations from the mobile and web app that originally took 10+ seconds now only require a few milliseconds.
For this I had to lead the rewrite of the entire infrastructure with which the team developed Microservices, and set up new company processes and a new software architecture.
