Jeff Gallimore
Excella

I’m the Chief Technology and Innovation Officer and Co-founder at Excella, a mid-tier technology consulting firm based in Arlington, VA. Since I turned to the dark side by going into management, I live vicariously through other engineers and have fond memories of spending my time in code and command lines rather than Outlook and Excel. I’m active in the DevOps community with DevOpsDays DC and as an advisor to IT Revolution. I have a passion for how technology can be used to help organizations win with their mission and people find joy in their work.

Aaron has been expanding the possibilities of Chaos Engineering in its application to other safety-critical portions of the domain, notably cybersecurity. He began pioneering the application of Security in Chaos Engineering during his tenure as the Chief Security Architect at the largest private healthcare company in the world, UnitedHealth Group (UHG). While at UHG Aaron released ChaoSlingr, one of the first open source software releases focused on using Chaos Engineering in cybersecurity to build more resilient systems. Aaron recently founded the first Chaos Engineering Meetup in Washington DC and is a frequent author, consultant and speaker in the space.
