Lionel is currently leading the Hosting Solutions team at Swiss-AS in Basel.
Having obtained a Swiss apprenticeship diploma and Berufsmatura (vocational baccalaureate) as IT Technician, he went on to complete a Bachelor of Science in Business Information Technology, which he graduated from in January 2019. Lionel joined the Swiss-AS Hosting Solutions team 2 months later as a System Specialist. Interested in the aviation industry and attracted by the Swiss-AS employee value proposition, he was proud to become part of the Swiss International Air Lines Group.
The Hosting Solutions team is responsible for deploying and monitoring the AMOS and database infrastructure (environments, network, AMOS, backups) of customers in the Cloud. Additionally, Lionel and his colleagues automate the deployment of the infrastructure, of AMOS and its database, in order to standardise processes, to reduce the number of hours spent on repetitive actions and to avoid human error. The team also implements cloud solutions and uses new services, such as Google Cloud Load Balancing and database high availability cluster tools to satisfy larger AMOS customers.
In September 2020, Lionel took over the role of Team Leader within his team. “When the position of Team Leader was proposed to me, I was really happy to see the trust that my supervisor and peers had in me and I knew that I would get full support from them.” His new role allows Lionel to improve his leadership and project management skills, to take part in the creation of hosting offers and to participate in our customer’s on-boarding activities, along with the technical part of IT.
In addition to the opportunity to constantly develop his skills and technical knowledge, Lionel particularly enjoys the Swiss-AS atmosphere and the team spirit that is typical for our company. Lionel concludes “In the Hosting team, there has been a good atmosphere right from the start. We really help each other, share our knowledge and of course have coffee breaks and lunch together to have “social” moments”.
