Career Detail

2023 — present: Vice President & AWS Partnership Global Cloud Lead, Akkodis (formerly Modis)

In 2022-2023, Modis globally merged with Akka Technologies to become Akkodis.


My role within the Adecco Group has morphed fomr being a Principal architect in 2014, designing, implementing, operating and then training teams on the Land Registry in the Cloud (the official ownership resords of land for the state government of Western Australia), to national solution & practice lead, to global practice & partnership lead, and in 2023, providing leadership to the global partnership and practices across all technology providers.

While still maintaining 8+ AWS Certifications, I also provided the global Best Practice for the 400+ engineers worldwide, directly working with each of the global Practice leads in each geography to ensure technical delivery excellence, and working with sales and marketing to help enable our global team understand the value proposition of strong digital engineering across architecture, implementation and operation (eg, as a Managed Sevices Provider).

I also started the delivery focus on cybersecurity within Modis Australia, working with the Australian Signals Directorate's Joint Cyber Security Centre (JCSC) to enable the company to become a part of the Managed Service Provider Partner Program (MSP^3), and facilitating the internal disemmination of security alerts to our operational support teams (many of whom themselves look after our largest enterprise and public sector customers, including security services, law enforcement, education, lands industry, transport, mining, energy, etc).

CV.JamesBromberger.com Footnotes

This site is an example of using AWS to serve content in a serverless way. Components of this are:

  1. CodeCommit: all content is inside a Git repository.
  2. CodePipeline: upon commit to the above CodeCommit repository, a pipeline deploys this content to a non-production URL, and notifies me to validate it. After validation, the live site is deployed
  3. The static content files are extracted to a prefix with an S3 Bucket: /staging/$non-prod, and /production/cv.jamesbromberger.com/ for production
  4. CloudFront is serving the content from its worldwide network of Points of Presence
  5. Cloudfront is serving this on IPv4 and IPv6
  6. The TLS configuration of CloudFront is up to date: check it with SSLLabs.com. Only TLS 1.2 and 1.3 are enabled.
  7. This domain has a CAA record to restrict other CAs from being duped into mis-issuance
  8. CloudFront has HTTP/2 enabled, and compression enabled
  9. CloudFront has HTTP/3 enabled, which uses UDP instead of TCP (if this is your first time recently on this site, you may notice the first request is HTTP/2, and subsequent requests (eg, images) were upgraded to HTTP/3 over UDP; the cache time is according to the alt-svc header from that first request)
  10. Cloudfront is redirecting all HTTP to HTTPS
  11. Security headers for this are set to be restrictive: check them with securityheaders.com; they are set using Lambda@Edge with NodeJS
  12. CloudFront is accessing the S3 bucket for content using an authenticated Origin Access Control (replacing the deprecated Origin Access Identity)
  13. CloudFront is logging to an S3 bucket
  14. S3 is also logging to an S3 bucket (different prefix to the Cloudfront log)
  15. There is S3 versioning on the S3 logging bucket, and the bucket holding the web content
  16. There is an S3 retention policy on the logging bucket for all objects after a period
  17. There is an S3 retention policy on the content bucket for previous revisions to be removed after a period
  18. There is an ACM issued certificate on both the staging and production sites for this CV
  19. Route 53 has the DNS for this site; it also holds the TLS Certification authorisation records so te certificates will automatically be reissued year-on-year
  20. The HitCounter is via AWS API Gateway
  21. The HitCounter has a valid CORS header
  22. The HitCounter executes Lambda (Python) to increment and return the current hit
  23. The HitCounter is using ARM instead of x86 to be more efficient on cost/performance
  24. The HitCounter is accessing DynamoDB as its persistent store
  25. The web framework for the content is Bootstrap 5 (check the HTML to see how recent and compare to getbootstrap.org)
  26. The TLS certificate is not RSA based, but Eliptical Curve Digital Signing Algorithm (ECDSA) issued by Amazon ECDSA 256 M02.
  27. The monthly cost for this hosted CV in AWS is less than a few cents.

If this simple CV has higher uptime, better response time, better security posture than your corporate services, then we should talk.
