Former Tech Director for Engineering Enablement at the FT


Sarah Wells has been a developer for 20 years, leading delivery teams across consultancy, financial services, and media. Building the FT's content and metadata publishing platform using a microservices-based architecture led her to develop a deep interest in operability, observability, and DevOps, and at the beginning of 2018 she took over responsibility for Operations and Reliability at the Financial Times. More recently, Wells moved on to take over Engineering Enablement, adding platform and security engineering into the mix. She led a group of teams at the FT who build tools and services for other engineers. Wells left the FT at the end of 2021 and is taking some time off before deciding her next move.
