German, English, Italian




My name is Carmelo Scollo and I was born as the son of Italian immigrants in Nuertingen (Germany), where I was raised bilingual. At the age of 12 I moved with my parents and sister to Wernau and after graduating from high school at the Gymnasium Plochingen in 2007, I decided to study business information technology at the Business and Economics Academy (Verwaltungs- und Wirtschafts-Akademie) Stuttgart. After graduating as Bachelor of Science in September 2010, I started working at IBM Global Business Services. I have applied knowledge of developing in Java/Kotlin, C#, and C ++. I am passionate about Web development both on the front-end (HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript) and on the backend (Node.js). I like to keep learning new things, enjoy sharing knowledge and enthusiasm and try to live the idea that technology shoul not dominate our lives, but make it easier instead. With the promotion and implementation of DevOps methods I try to contribute to this goal.

  • DevOps Specialist, Daimler AG

    Jan, 2016 - Mar, 20193 years 3 months

    Starting 2016 I joined Daimler AG's R&D department, more specifically the subject area Connected Car. Here I was part of the Customer Frontends team, that is responsible for the Mercedes Me App, until September 2018. My area of responsibility included leading back end development and operations, the continuous enablement of CI/CD best practices and building up monitoring capabilities for our back end services running inside our Pivotal Cloud Foundry environment. Doing this, I coordinated the interactions between Daimler AG, our partners and several suppliers.
    Since October 2018 I am part of an effort to set a new foundation for Connected Car back ends on top of Kubernetes and Azure. For this I implement and operate an adapter for required third party systems based on Spring Reactor.

    • From May to August 2018 I was given the opportunity in the course of an in-house software development initiative to develop an app based on existing APIs in a 4-person team on our own terms. In order to master this challenge with only 4 people I learned the framework Flutter which helped us to develop an MVP for iOS and Android at the same time.

  • Research Assistant, University of Tübingen - Institute of Geosciences

    May, 2014 - May, 2015

    I worked 20 hours per month on this project leading a team of 3 people. Our goal was to implement a web application, which provides access to data of the Water - Earth System Science (WESS) measurement stations located in the Ammertal near Tübingen without requiring knowledge of SQL or direct access to the database. Together we developed a full stack JavaScript application with AngularJS for the front end and Node.js for the back end, which can query the data and visualize it in graphs.
