Kristina Zhelyazkova is a young software engineer at vRealize Automation Cloud at VMware.She graduated Sofia High School of Mathematics with full excellence and got a Bachelor Degree in Computer Science from Sofia University “St. Kliment Ohridski” in 2020. Krisi started as an Intern at VMware a year before her graduation. Her intern project was successfully released in production and enabled the Product Management and the Engineering team to track how much, by whom and how is the Cloud Assembly IaaS API used in time. Having such data enabled the team to make informed decisions and proactively contact customers.
I was in my 3rd year at the university when I applied and balancing studying and working was important to me. The VMware Internship program is designed in a way that allows doing both. I graduated with an excellent grade on my final exam, while being offered a full time job position at VMware. And the best part is that I continue working on the same product in the same team!
I have worked on the development of interesting features like allowing integration with external IPAM systems, a public API to allow automation of the provisioning processes, telemetry for API usage and encryption of sensitive data. But writing code is not the only thing I do at VMware. My job includes testing, researching, discussions with colleagues, talking with customers, investigating issues and writing technical blogs, too!
