Andrew Oetzel

Senior Customer Success Engineer


Drew has been working in IT since the early 90s CD-ROM revolution and Windows 3.1. He purchased his first copy of Red Hat Linux in a box in ‘97 - never did get the sound card drivers to work, but had the Linux bug from there on out. In the year 2000 he joined his first tech startup just a few months before the crash. Despite the rocky start he got the startup bug and hasn’t stopped since. During that time he spent 7 years helping to build Splunk from the ground up. After Splunk he dove into distributed systems and containers at Mesophere. When Kubernetes came along he moved over to Heptio - if you can’t beat ‘em join ‘em. After Heptio got acquired he continued his journey into Dev/Ops, spending time at both Tigera and Harness. Since joining Humanitec in July 2022 he’s gone all in on the evolution of Dev/Ops into Platform Engineering.
