Development path @ Red Hat

Marcel has been managing the AIOps team in the AI Center of Excellence for two years. Before taking on the manager role, Marcel served as a Principal Engineer in the CoE and as a team lead for AIOps. His prior experience includes software engineering roles in the Cloudforms team, freelance development, Red Hat Sales Engineering in EMEA, as well as start-ups.
