Jingran Lin

Thinking about a career in a rapidly growing technology start-up? We'd like you to meet our team at StarLeaf: the people that fuel our growth and success.

Jingran Lin is an Infrastructure Engineer, part of our talented Development Operations team that keeps us at the forefront of cutting-edge Cloud technology.

'I started out at StarLeaf as an intern' explains Jingran. 'During the final year of my Engineering Tripos at The University of Cambridge, I took a 3-month placement in the London office. After graduation, I had the choice of joining the team permanently or continuing my studies with a fully-funded PhD.'

Luckily for us, Jingran chose a career at StarLeaf and is now a respected member of our DevOps team.

'I really enjoyed the working atmosphere at StarLeaf, and I knew that it would be more rewarding for me to be able to personally contribute to an exciting start-up than to continue studying.'

Thanks to a supportive environment and a close-knit team, along with her own dedication and enthusiasm, Jingran has quickly established herself as a valued member of StarLeaf. Her role here is vital to both our customers and us: making sure the StarLeaf Cloud is always running at its robust and reliable best.

'The main focus of my role is monitoring the StarLeaf Cloud. I keep an eye on daily activity, follow up on any warnings to prevent outages and maintain and upgrade units in the Cloud to make sure everything is running the right version. I also set up new infrastructures and generate video call stats for the team.'

'What I really like about working here is that I'm constantly expanding my knowledge. We're encouraged to keep asking questions, both for self-development and to help the company grow. We all have specific areas of expertise and share knowledge continually, which allows us to grow too.'

'The best advice I can give to someone looking to embark on a career in a technology start-up is to make sure the company you choose will both support and challenge you, giving you the opportunity to make a genuine contribution.'
